EVER THOUGHT ABOUT THE TRUTH?

The most serious mistake a man makes is not pondering. It is not possible to find the truth unless one thinks about basic questions such as "How and why am I here?", "Who created me?", or "Where am I going?". Failing to do so, one becomes trapped in the vicious circle of daily life and turns into a selfish creature caring only for himself. "Ever Thought About the Truth?" summons people to think on such basic questions and to discover the real meaning of life.

CRUDE UNDERSTANDING OF DISBELIEF

Allah, in the Qur'an, calls the culture of people who are not subject to the religion of Allah "ignorance." Only a comparison of this culture with the honorable thoughts and moral structure of the Qur'an can reveal its primitive and corrupted nature. The purpose of this book is to take this comparison further, displaying the extent of the "crude understanding" of ignorant societies.

ABANDONING THE SOCIETY OF IGNORANCE

Saying "I believe" is just the beginning of the great struggle that one will carry on against one's soul for a lifetime. An important part of this struggle involves eliminating all the principles of the society of ignorance that pervade the culture we live in. This book examines these principles and the ways to avoid them in details.

WHY DO YOU DECEIVE YOURSELF?


People use various defense mechanisms to disregard facts about life and to comfort themselves while so doing. The most effective of these defense mechanisms is one's "deceiving oneself". Someone who deceives himself thinks that he can escape from all realities and responsibilities in life, foremost among them being death. However deceiving oneself is not a solution for the salvation of man; on the contrary, it drives man into a blind alley that leads to Hell.

SEEING GOOD IN ALL

"…It may be that you hate something when it is good for you and it may be that you love something when it is bad for you. Allah knows and you do not know." (Surat al-Baqara: 216)

Allah creates every word one utters, every detail one encounters, every event one experiences, from the moment one is born into this world. Whenever someone who believes in Allah comes up against an incident that seems to be a problem, he knows that it is actually the best thing for him. In the 216th verse of Surat al-Baqara, Allah says: "...It may be that you hate something when it is good for you and it may be that you love something when it is bad for you. Allah knows and you do not know". For a believer who understands this fact, uninterrupted joy of faith becomes an unchanging quality of life. The fate decreed by Allah is flawless. In this entity made up of millions of events, there is only goodness, benevolence, and wisdom for everyone who looks at them with an eye for goodness.


THE MATURE FAITH

"Mature" means, "fully considered and perfected." The concept of "mature faith" referred to in this book expresses the most advanced and perfect state of faith a believer can attain. The purpose of this book is to define "mature faith" and to guide every sincere believer in his efforts to exhibit Islam's moral principles in the best possible way.

THE SECRETS OF THE HYPOCRITE

Hypocrites are a group that Allah calls our attention to in hundreds of verses. In this book, the characteristics of hypocrites are examined one by one with references from the Qur'an. The distinction between hypocrites and disbelievers is also discussed.

THE MERCY OF BELIEVERS

The Qur'an draws our attention to one of the important attributes of believers: mercy. A person having fear of Allah naturally shows mercy for His servants and treats them kindly. Yet it is essential to distinguish between the concept of mercy, as conceived by people of ignorance, and the mercy described in the Qur'an. This book was written for that purpose.

THE GREATEST SLANDER: IDOLATRY

Most people know somehow that idolatry is a great wrong and imagine they have completely dissociated themselves from it. They suppose that idolaters are only those people who worship totem poles or idols made of stone or wood. However, idolatry is not limited to worshipping "graven images" and it is much more prevalent in modern society than most people realize. This book defines idolatry in the true sense of the word as explained in the Qur'an and warns man against this prevalent perversity.

THE INIQUITY CALLED MOCKERY

All through history, people who had no faith in Allah and the Day of Judgment, tended to mock religion and its followers in order to "prove" that they themselves are the ones who are on the true path. These people are heading towards a bitter end since they make fun of believers and spread slanders against them. This book explains how they are caught by a plot while they waste time ridiculing believers.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FOLLOWING THE GOOD WORD

A "good word" is always thought of as implying a compliment, an expression of love, or hopeful speech. The good word that Allah communicates to us in the Qur'an however has a much different and more comprehensive meaning. Allah describes the good word to us in the verse Who is better in speech than someone who summons to Allah and acts rightly and says, 'I am of one of the Muslims'? (Surah Fussilat: 33) This book describes the importance of following the good word and the losses that will be suffered by those who fail to do this in this world and in the hereafter.


THE MYSTERY OF THE TEST

During the time one spends in this world, man is tried and tested by his Creator. Responding to evil with good, being patient, and conducting oneself morally are the other obligations of a believer. Being aware of the fact that everything befalling man is merely a trial from his Creator, taking pleasure from them, and responding to them joyfully and eagerly lie at the heart of the mystery of this test and this is recognized only by believers.
