Turkish author, educator, and Muslim scholar living in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, USA. He has been described in the English-language media as an imam "who promotes a tolerant Islam which emphasises altruism, hard work and education" and as "one of the world's most important Muslim figures." He is the founder of the Gülen movement (known as Hizmet meaning service in Turkish), and the inspiration figure for its largest organization, the Alliance for Shared Values. In his sermons, Gülen has constantly emphasized the importance of education and interfaith tolerance and dialogue. Gülen's followers have built over 1,000 schools around the world and are engaging in interreligious and intercultural social activities.

“Criticizing and objecting to everything means an attempt to destruction. If you do not like something, try to make something better than it. Being destructive causes ruins, while being constructive brings about prosperity.”
M. Fethullah Gülen

“Goodness, beauty, truthfulness, honesty, and being virtuous are the essence of the world. Whatever happens, the world will one day find this essence, for no one can prevent such an event”
M. Fethullah Gülen

“True poetry is composed of metaphors and symbols which are born in the heart, rise like clouds, and assume a celestial form; verses formed otherwise are not poetry, but only artificial words, each of which contradicts the feelings inside. The utterances and words that have not been formed in a person’s soul as the voice of conscience are all hollow, no matter how embellished they are or how dazzling they seem to be.”
M. Fethullah Gülen, Speech and Power of Expression: On Language, Esthetics, and Belief
