The Shift Towards Success Or Loss Depends On Whether a Person Gives Precedence To Truth or Falsehood’- by Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yahyah Al-Mu’allamee

Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yahyah Al’Mu-allimee (rahimahullaah) stated:

The human being does not (merely or initially) hate truth as a result of considering it to be falsehood; rather  he (or she) loves truth by way of his (or her) Fitra (natural inclination), and he (or she) loves falsehood due to his (her) desires and lusts. The shift towards success or loss defends on what he (or she) gives preference to.

Allaah (The Blessed and Exalted) said:

[فَأَمَّا مَن طَغَىٰ]

[وَءَاثَرَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنۡيَا]

[فَإِنَّ ٱلۡجَحِيمَ هِىَ ٱلۡمَأۡوَىٰ]

[وَأَمَّا مَنۡ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِۦ وَنَهَى ٱلنَّفۡسَ عَنِ ٱلۡهَوَىٰ]

[فَإِنَّ ٱلۡجَنَّةَ هِىَ ٱلۡمَأۡوَىٰ]

Then, for him who Tagha (transgressed) and preferred the life of this world (by following his evil desires and lusts), Verily, his abode will be Hell-fire; But as for him who feared standing before his Lord, and restrained himself from impure evil desires, and lusts. Verily, Paradise will be his abode.” [An-Naazi’aat. Ayah:37-41]
