Victory of Truth

Truth Has Come, Falsehood Has Vanished (26.09.2021)
A’ūdhu bi-Llāhi mina sh-shayṭāni r-rajīm. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
وَقُلْ جَاءَ الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ ۚ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا
(Qur’ān 17:81). ‘And say, “Truth has come, and falsehood has vanished. Indeed is falsehood ever bound to vanish.”.’ Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla says in the Qur’an, “Truth has come and falsehood has vanished”. Falsehood has no ruling. Truth always comes out. Even though it looks like it’s over, eventually, it comes out as a winner and false things are swept away. People of falsehood assume that they finished the truth. They think that they didn’t leave a thing of it. But later, they realize that it is them who are finished.
The biggest example for this is the countries we travelled to. Bukhara and Samarkand used to be called Ma Wara’ an-Nahr, Transoxiana (What Lies Beyond the River). The Islamic countries there, those holy places – they were conquered by the Sahabah. And with their Barakah, the sun of civilization, the sun of Islam rose up there. Thousands and millions of scholars who followed our main belief, and the way of truth of our Holy Prophet ﷺ appeared there. But the trouble of the Mongols had come at some point and destroyed everything. They came as a flood and didn’t leave a single mosque, a house or a tomb. They flattened everything to the ground. And when they said that it was over and nothing would appear there, they were destroyed themselves, for the will of Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla and His ﷻ word are true. They vanished and truth came. After some time, they started serving Islam. The truth and light of Islam appeared there once again.
A Hundred years ago, the shaytans invaded it again. They said that there is no Allah ﷻ, that the religion is useless and forbade everything. But thank Allah ﷻ, now everywhere is much better than before masha’Allah. The truth has come out again. Therefore, it is wrong to lose hope by looking at the condition of the world. Believers must listen to and believe in the orders of Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla. They must believe. This is ‘iman. Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. It is swept and thrown away. Falsehood will never be raised or be good. It is always bad and dirty. It is impossible to rise. Sometimes people lose their hope because of the oppression in the world. They shouldn’t look at it. Certainly, it will be swept away.
Therefore, this is the biggest example. We used to hear about those places but didn’t imagine how they were. And when we went there, we came to realize how such places have fallen behind. It happens. When He ﷻ says “Be”, it happens. When He ﷻ says “Don’t be”, it doesn’t happen. No one can come against the will of Allah ﷻ. Make Shukr to Allah ﷻ for being on the side of truth. Shukr to Allah ﷻ for we are not on the side of falsehood. This is the biggest favor insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ always show the victory of truth insha’Allah. Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
