PRIDE COMES BEFORE A FALL

“Evil can have no beginning but from pride nor any end but from humility.”

PROCESSION OF DEATH

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | February 14, 2021

A coffin is being carried aloft towards the grave. It seems like a journey, not just from one point to another, but from man’s beginning to his end.

When man is born into this world, he immediately has recourse to a mother’s compassion and a father’s protection. He grows up among friends and relatives. Then he reaches adulthood and forges ahead on his chosen path through life.

THE UNMASKING

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | January 31, 2021

There are some people in the world who have not bowed to God in their hearts, and their physical prostration is devoid of spirit. The Quran tells us in Chapter 68, Verse 42 that when such people are asked on the day of judgement to prostrate themselves before God, they will not be able to.

THE TRIAL OF LIFE

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | The Sunday Guardian | January 24, 2021

The Quran tells us how, when man was first put on earth, Iblis (Satan) along with the Angels, was commanded to bow before Adam, the first man. He refused to do so, claiming that he was better than Adam. Why should he bow before an inferior creature? The Angels, on the other hand, obeyed God’s command immediately. They had no hesitation in bowing before Adam.  (The Quran, 2: 34)

In the modern age we find a world of material advancement ac­companied by human backwardness. It is true that man has taken great strides forward in recent times, but his progress has been in technolog­ical, scientific and industrial fields. Nothing has been done to improve the state of man as such.
