By His Mercy and Generosity, Allah (SWT) have created for this Ummah a purified source, and created for it a clean fountainhead for it to use and cleanse itself with. But unfortunately, the Ummah refused and insisted on searching for every other malignant, stagnant, and polluted water to drink from, and therefore, increase in uncleanness, filthiness and misguidance! What a big shame?!

Not only that, but the Ummah weren’t satisfied with their decision. They tried to wipe out and eradicate the purified source and sought to disparage, tarnish, and dehydrate this purified stream of water which Allah (SWT) blessed us with! However, they were not able to do that because Allah (SWT) will perfect His Light, though the nonbelievers may be averse. Allah (SWT) is the one who cleansed and purified this source by His desire and will which shall continue to stay in its purified and chaste form through the times and age.

It will be available for those who want to use, take advantage of, and cleanse themselves with it, thus meeting Allah (SWT) with a good heart. This will be so until Allah (SWT) inherits the Earth, and truthful is Allah, the Great when He said,

“Surely, We have revealed the Reminder and We will most surely be its guardian.” [15:9]

With His Wisdom and Desire, Allah (SWT) has willed that the purification verse become a test and temptation to the people. So, He placed it in that specific location in Surat Al-Ahzab. It is a fitna (test) that is passed only by those who truly believe in Allah (SWT) and His Messenger without being obstinate, making lies, being hypocritical, or following their carnal desires.

It is passed by those who are not fanatic and do not fall as a victim of their own foolishness and narrow-mindedness. As for those who fail this great test, they are the stubborn, the hypocrites, the liars, the fanatics, the disbelievers, and the foolish from this Ummah.

There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for those who fail this test, especially since the truth was made clear, vivid, and was revealed for all ages to come. It is not at all hard for us to understand the truth, especially since Rasulullah (SA) explained it and made clear to us the truth from falsehood, the right from wrong, and the light from darkness. After that, whoever wishes to take advantage and use this purified source which Allah (SWT) Himself have purified by His own free will, let him/her do so.

Whomsoever Allah (SWT) guides, he is the rightly guided one, and whomsoever He causes to err, you shall not find for him any friend to lead him to the right way. It is not Allah (SWT) who is unjust to them; rather they were unjust to their own selves. Whoever goes astray or disbelieves, or is uncompromising, or lies, will not at all hurt Allah (SWT) in any way or form, for surely He is Self-Sufficient and above any need of the worlds, and He will reward the thankful.

Those who act unjustly shall know to what final place of turning they shall turn back, and the end is for those who guard against evil. Peace and prayers be upon the most dignified of messengers, Muhammad, and his purified progeny, Ali, Fatima, Hasan, and Husain (AS), who have all been purified by the word and will of Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, despite the jealous, the rejecters, the deniers, the envious, the foolish, the obstinate, the liars, and the nonbelievers. May Allah’s curse be upon all those who are unjust, and praise is to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!
