When truth is revealed

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | SOULVEDA

Some people have not, in their hearts, bowed to God. Their outward prostration to God in prayer is a mere pretense. Prostration is not just a ritual and time-bound sort of physical action; it is to surrender oneself to sublime reality. It is to make oneself follow truth in one’s practical life.

Perseverance pays

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | SOULVEDA

Wakening up in the morning to the noisy chirruping of the birds, the man noticed a broken egg lying on the ground. It had obviously fallen from a nest built by sparrows, just under the ceiling of his modest dwelling. Wearily, he removed the broken egg, then, noting with disgust the straws which were eternally littering his floor, he stood up on a piece of furniture, and swiped the nest out of its niche. Then he spent quite some time and effort cleaning up the whole place.

Human Brotherhood

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan | SOULVEDA

According to Islam, all human beings have been created by one and the same God, and for this reason belong to one great brotherhood. So far as their earthly origin is concerned, they are all descendants of the first pair of human beings ever created by God–Adam and Eve. In their subsequent spread over different parts of the world, variations in geographical conditions produced a diversity of skin colourings, languages and other racial characteristics.
