Knowing the Truth

Verily, He (SWT) is the Lord of all beings, their Creator, the Provider of their livelihood, the One bestowing life unto them and the One causing death to them, the fluctuator of their hearts, the disposer of their affairs. There is no lord for them but He (AWJ), no owner, no creator for them except He (AWJ) whether they admit it or deny it, and whether they recognize it or they are ignorant of it. But the faithful believers recognize it and believe in it. Unlike the one who is ignorant about it, or denies it and is arrogant towards his Lord, neither admitting nor submitting to Him (SWT), although he knows that Allah (AWJ) is his Lord and His Creator.

For knowing the truth but being too arrogant to accept it and furthermore to then deny it, is a great torment to man, as Ta'aala said, And they denied them (Allah's signs) unjustly and arrogantly, though their souls were convinced thereof. So see what was the end of the mischief makers. [An-Naml:14]; and Ta'aala said,

Those to whom We gave the Scripture (Jews and Christians) recognize him (Muhammad SAAWS) as they recognize their sons. But verily, a party of them knowingly conceal the truth (i.e. the attributes of Muhammad SAAWS which are written in the Torah and Gospel). [Al-Baqarah: 146];

and Ta'aala said,

It is not you (Muhammad SAAWS) that they deny, but it is the Signs of Allah that the transgressors deny. [Al-An'aam:33]
