Truth versus Falsehood – Paperback by Shaykh Mufti Saiful Islam
In this sūrah, there is a clear contrast between the truth practiced by those who are the righteous, and falsehood which is practiced by the mushrikūn (those who associate partners with Allāh subhanahu wa ta’ala). This is explained through the examples of Sayyidunā Ibrāhīm alayhis salaam, Sayyidunā Mūsā alayhis salaam and Sayyidunā Īsā alayhis salaam and the trials and tribulations they endured in the mission of spreading the truth. The battle between truth and falsehood will be full of tests and trials, but the steadfastness and commitment of the prophets described in this sūrah reveal how the truth will always prevail.
Those who commit shirk and kufr will be amongst the losers. Although this worldly life is full of temptations, the true believers will not fall for this and instead, they will earn their place in Paradise, unimaginable to man. We will explore the life of Sayyidunā Mūsā alayhis salaam and Sayyidunā Īsā alayhis salaam in greater depth.
