Truth Exposed

Islam, The Only Solution For Humanity!

The Truth

One God, One Life, One Chance!

 The truth is life on earth is very short indeed. Our main aim and efforts should be focused on the hereafter, and following the straight path of life. Everything we do will be judged, therefore it is vital for us to remember this when conducting ourselves everyday. There's a saying, “The world is a bridge which you must cross over (to the afterlife) but upon which you should not build.” All the fame, glory, wealth and honour that people strive for in this capitalistic/materialistic world are futile, and will be of no use to us in the everlasting time to come after we depart from this world. We will not be able to take these worldly possessions to the grave with us. Only our deeds (good and bad) will be taken. 

  In a world that seems at times to be in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can humanity survive much longer? 

 Islam has the answers and solutions to our problems, whether it is on a individual basis, or a collective one. By following Islam we will all be in a better situation. All the laws and injunctions given by Allah and His Prophet (pbuh) are pure and perfect; while the man-made laws suffer from the impurities of human bias and imperfections. Thus any formal law can only be truly just when it is purified by divine guidance, as elucidated by the Qur'an and the Sunnah. Muslim states that follow the Shariah for example, have the lowest crime, violence and anti-social behaviour rates in the world. Most of the problems in modern society are due to people going away from Islam. If Islam was implemented to a greater extent, then we would see a far better society and culture for everyone. Let us sincerely recall and critically reflect the purpose of our creation, which is to worship none but Allah. Allah doesn't need us; He is in no need of anyone or anything. However, we are the ones who need Allah; we require and depend on our Lord, our creator, sustainer and cherisher. We must also not forget how loving, caring and forgiving our Lord is. Allah loves His pious slaves more than anyone else. Allah wants us to do Allah well, and when we go astray, Allah is willing to forgive us if we repent. Allah assures us that whoever commits a sin will be forgiven if he/she repents and ceases the acts:

 "Surely Allah loves those who turn unto him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves."                                                                                                        (Qur'an 2:222) 

 "Your Lord hath inscribed for Himself (the rule of) mercy: verily, if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented, and amend (his conduct), Lo! He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."                                                                                                     (Qur'an 6:54) 

 This verse is affirmed by a Hadith Qudsi, where Allah Almighty says: “My mercy prevails over My wrath.” 

 “O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me, and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.”                                                                                                       (Hadith Qudsi)

 There are many rewards and unimaginable pleasures from Allah to be gained by following the commandments of Allah. We do not realise the immense benefits there is in little everyday actions. On the day of Judgement, most will be repenting and regretting the missed opportunities they had in this world, by not following the simple rules Allah has set out for us. Discover and study the truth and realise what you have been missing. Hope all the information presented here helps you to see the light and sends you on the path to success and prosperity, it is not too late. It was relayed on the authority of Abu Dhar al-Ghifari (ra), that the Prophet (saw), said, of what he related from his Lord, magnified and exalted be He, Who said:

 "O My servants, I have made oppression unlawful for Me and unlawful for you, so do not commit oppression against one another. O My servants, all of you are liable to err except for those whom I guide on the right path, therefore seek guidance from Me so that I should direct you to the right path. O My servants, all of you are hungry (needy) except for those whom I feed, therefore seek food from Me so that I may feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked (need clothes) except for those whom I provide garments, therefore seek clothing from Me so that I should clothe you. O My servants, you sin by night and by day and I am there to pardon your sins, therefore seek forgiveness from Me so that I should grant you pardon. O My servants, you can neither do Me any harm nor can you do Me any good. O My servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of Jinns become as pious as the most pious heart of any one amongst you, it will not add anything to My Power or Kingdom. O My servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of Jinns become as wicked as the most wicked heart of anyone amongst you, it will not decrease anything from My Power or Kingdom. O My servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of Jinns gather together on a sector of land and all ask of Me and if I were to give everyone of them what they asked, that will not in any way decrease what I have any more than a needle decreases what is in the ocean when it is put into it. O My servants, these deeds of yours which I am recording for you I shall reward you for them so he who finds good should praise Allah and he who finds other than that should not blame anyone but himself."                  (Sahih Muslim: Book 31, Number 6246)

Qur'an

 The holy Qur'an is a Message from Allah to humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from the Almighty Himself to the angel Jibraeel to the Prophet Muhammad (saw). This message was given to the Prophet (saw) in pieces over a period spanning approximately 23 years (610 CE to 632 CE). The Prophet (saw) was 40 years old when the Qur'an began to be revealed to him, and he was 63 when the revelation was completed. The language of the original message was Arabic, but it has been translated into many other languages. The Qur'an is one of the two sources which form the basis of Islam. The second source is the sunnah of the prophet (saw). What makes the Qur'an different from the Sunnah is primarily its form. Unlike the Sunnah, the Qur'an is literally the Word of Allah (swt), whereas the Sunnah was inspired by Allah but the wording and actions are the Prophet's (saw). The Qur'an has not been expressed using any human's words. Its wording is letter for letter fixed by no one but Allah. Prophet Muhammad (saw) was the final Messenger of Allah to humanity, and therefore the Qur'an is the last Message which Allah (swt) has sent to us. Its predecessors such as the Torah, Psalms, and Gospels have all been superseded. It is an obligation and blessing for all who hear of the Qur'an and Islam to investigate it and evaluate it for themselves. Allah (swt) has guaranteed that He will protect the Qur'an from human tampering, and today's readers can find exact copies of it all over the world. The Qur'an of today is the same as the Qur'an revealed to Muhammad (saw) 1400 years ago. Therefore, the best thing to recommend is to read the Holy Qur'an itself and see what Islam is all about yourself. You can read the original in Arabic and/or a translation in many languages. Allah Almighty tells us:

 "And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?"                                                         (Qur'an 54:32)  

 Therefore there is very little excuse for missing this opportunity to pass by and not read the Qur'an yourself and see what it actually says. The Holy Qur'an covers a variety of subjects, including religious doctrine, law, social values, morality, history, prophetic stories, philosophy and science. These are unlikely to have been created by any man in Arabia 1400 years ago. The Qur'an was first recited and written in Arabic. This makes it the main and original language of the Qur'an, which is therefore Islam’s sacred and liturgical language. The Qur'an has long been considered the supreme standard of eloquence in the Arabic language. Due to Arabic’s sacred status, the Qur'an is strictly speaking, untranslatable, though the text has been rendered into many languages. The Arabic language of the Qur'an is indispensable in conveying God’s message because it was chosen by God Almighty Himself. Therefore, once you translate out of that language and into another, the beauty is lost. The Qur'an in Arabic is the total, eternal and full word of God, while translations are only a mere attempt by the translator and his interpretation, using his own words to portray what Allah is saying (in Arabic) in His own glorious and divine words. As a result, there is no translation that can do the authentic Qur'an justice, in terms of how poetic, eloquent, linguistic and captivating it is. There is no substitute for the Qur'an in Arabic. 

 

Da'wah

 Dawah and spreading knowledge is an obligation on all Muslims. There are numerous narrations of the prophet (saw) clearly stating this duty and reward for such action.

"Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says I am of those who bow in Islam" (Qur'an 41:33)

“Allah will raise those who have believed among you and those who were given knowledge, by degrees.” (Qur'an, 58:11)

“Whosoever Allah wishes good for, He gives him understanding (fiqh) of the Religion.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

Ibn ‘Abbas narrated, the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said:

“Teach! Make things easy! And do not make things complicated! He (SAW) repeated this three times and then he added: And if you get angry, keep quiet!”     

(Ibn Hajar Al-‘Asqalani, Al-Matalib Al-‘Aliyah; At-Tayalisi; Ibn Hanbal; Ibn Abi Shaibah)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ‘Abd Allah Ibn Mas’ud narrated, the Messanger of Allah (SAAW) said:

“May Allah brighten [the face of] a person who hears a hadith from us, and
reports it as he heard it, because many people which the hadith is reported
to, perceive it better than the one who reported it to them.” 
(Ibn Hibban, Sahih)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------‘Abd Allah Ibn Mas’ud (SAAW) said, the Messenger of Allah (SAAW) said:

“Let there be no envy, except in two things:
1- A man whom Allah gave a wealth and guided him to spend it in righteous way.
2- Or a man to whom Allah gave wisdom and he acts wisely and teaches it to others.”                                          (Al-Bukhari and Muslim; See An-Nawawi, Riyad As-Salihin)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Abu Hurairah (RA) narrated, the Messenger of Allah (SAAW) said:

“Anyone who calls [people] to a right guidance, he will be rewarded like the reward of all those who followed him, without depriving them anything from their reward.* And anyone who calls [people] to an error, he will get of the sin, like the sins of those who followed him without decreasing anything of their sins.”                       (Ibn Hibban, Sahih)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hazrat Abbas (ra) narrated that the Prophet (saw) said,

And none should hide knowledge from another as it is worse to be distrustful in knowledge than being distrustful in wealth.”                                     (Al Laa liyul Masnoo’a)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Take benefit of five before five:

  • your YOUTH before your AGE,
  • your HEALTH before your SICKNESS,
  • your WEALTH before your POVERTY,
  • your FREE TIME before your PREOCCUPATION,
  • and your LIFE before your DEATH."

 - Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم       (Narrated by Ibn Abbas & reported by Al Hakim)
