VIRTUES & VICE

1441 | 2019

The emergence of final prophecy signals the last stage of the completion of the virtues of character. Good character is always crafted in the furnace of difficulty and difficulty, herein, is a necessary contradiction to virtue. The Meccan years of the prophetic narrative are progressively difficult years and only those who are true will stand the test that both the time and place presents.

Alif; Lām; Mīm: Do people think that they will be left alone as long as they say, “We believe!” without them being tried? We did indeed try those before them, and God surely knows who were truthful and He indeed knows who are the liars.
