Struggle Between Right & Wrong

By: Nawaz

The way of life revealed by Allah Almighty is called Al Deen or Al-Islam, provides that whatever gifts this beautiful earth of ours has in store or can produce, should be available to all mankind in an equal manner. There is a section of people, however, who dislike it and would, on the basis of might, control the sources of production, so that they might with-hold God's gifts from His creation and avail of them personally according to their sweet will. The group, opposed as it is to God's way of life Al Islam, places all sorts of hindrances in its establishment among mankind, bringing about, what the Holy Quran describes as a struggle between Right and Wrong.

Whereas Islam has unquestioned sway in nature, it has to contend with stiff opposition in human society. Consider the example of a seed sown in the earth. Given the requisite means of growth a healthy and vigorous seed will sprout, the shoot will rise high slowly and a day will come for the tiny little seed to swing as a full fledged and robust tree. The seed has the capacity to grow and attain its destiny.

Likewise the eternal laws and the permanent values which, as already referred to, make up Al-Islam, have the capacity to overcome impediments in the way of their materialization and to attain their goal. In the words of the Holy Quran the healthy concept of life, Kalema-e-Tavvib, has the capacity to go up to Him - Quran chapter 35 verse 10- it is to attain the heights which Allah Almighty has destined for it. In other words Right has the capacity and power to grapple with and overcome Wrong and pursue its own course. What Happenings in human society, past and present, seem, however, to belie the conclusion. There is untruth everywhere, having full sway and giving no quarter to truth. Tyranny, exploitation, dishonesty, fraud are rampant. Appearances may, howeverFree Articles, be deceptive. Ask ourselves first and then Let us clear the misunderstanding underlying the confusion.
