Thinking Is A Must

I do not fear for the man who thinks, even if he goes astray; that is because he will go back to truth. I’d rather fear for the man who doesn’t think, even if he is guided because he is just like the straw blown by the wind.

Truth Never Fears Freedom

Falsehood does not proceed on earth by its own power; rather it is driven and supported by factors of whim, corruption and swords. When it is abandoned by those factors, it then collapses by itself. As for truth, because of its approval by the human nature made by Allah (SWT), it is acceptable, desirable and capable of overcoming obstacles and crossing barriers. Truth never fears freedom. It is corruption, ignorance and oppression which fear freedom.

The Everlasting Conflict

When the conflict between truth and falsehood rages on until it reaches its peak and each side does its best to achieve victory, there is a critical hour when falsehood reaches its utmost power while truth suffers its hardest ordeal. In such hard time, steadfastness is a turning point; hence a decisive test of the believers’ faith starts. If they hold firmly on their faith, then everything will change to their advantage. And the truth starts its way upward while falsehood starts its way downward, and the expected end is stated in the name of Allah.
