One of The Reasons Why The Human Might Acknowledge Truth, But Gives Preference to Falsehood

Al-Allaamah Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Yahyah Al-Mu’allimee [rahimahullaah] stated:

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

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]
