In reality, until a person abandons lies, he cannot become pure. Worthless materialists believe that they cannot survive without lies. However, this is an absurdity. If one cannot survive with truth, then lies definitely cannot sustain a person either. It is a pity that these wretched people do not give God the value He deserves. They do not know that it is without the grace of God Almighty that a person cannot survive. They consider the filth of falsehood to be their god and the resolver of their difficulties. This is precisely the reason that God Almighty has tied falsehood to the filth of idols and mentioned it in the Holy Qur’an. Know for certain that we cannot take a single step, rather, not even a single breath, without the grace of God. Our bodies are blessed with countless abilities, but what can we do with our own strength? Nothing at all.
