We believe that a true and comprehensive understanding of Islam would not be possible without careful recognition of the Prophetic Tradition and the Prophet's Household. And Allah is the Source of Strength.

Allah's Polygraph

" Guidance is complicated. There are no set of rules, which, if followed, one will achieve guidance. We may argue that following the Prophet (SAW) and the Quran is guidance and it is true, but we must also realize that all sects of Islam claim to derive their teachings from the Quran itself, yet they contradict each other. There are many factors involved for the guidance of one person, and these factors can be argued upon.

It is safe to say that whatever a man does, whether he be Hindu, Christian, Jew, Shia, Sunni etc, all will agree that to be successful in the here after, to be guided and as a result of guidance, one must do the right things and refrain from the wrong things.

Allah has gifted every man with conscience, a self-correcting mechanism, which fulfills its job atleast once to every human being irrespective of his/her race, religion and social status.

Having a conscience is a blessing of Allah, where as, listening to it is another. We try to kill it or cover it up through ignorance, biasness, anger, frustrations and arrogance.

Ayah 21 of Surah 41 (Fussilat) states that in the hereafter, a man's skin, eyes and ears will testify against him. Is it possible for our skins to speak against us in the hereafter? One answer is that everything is possible with Allah, which is the right answer. However, another answer would be, that our body speaks against us in this world already, there is nothing to be surprised about in the hereafter then.

When a person lies, his body does not support his lie. It is this testifying of our body against our lie which is used by the Polygraph, better known as the lie detector. One may try to suppress the natural emotions before the worldly authorities and escape with the lies, but this escape is not possible before the ultimate authority of Allah.

How can a man escape Allah's polygraph where the skin, the eyes and the ears will testify against him? Make us of this life and this time while you still can. "
