What is the metaphor and example that Allah uses in the holy Qur'an when He is talking about Truth and falsehood?
And what is the condition for the followers of the Truth to succeed and become victorious?
Finally, can the followers of Truth succeed in this era which is the era of the domination of materialism?
Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei provides us with a short interpretation of the following verse of the Holy Quran.
Chapter 13 (al-Ra’d), Verse 17:
“He sends water down from the sky, and valleys flow according to their measure, and the torrent carries a rising foam. And from that [ore] which they heat in the fire, in order to make adornments and utensils, is a foam like it. Thus does Allah present [a metaphor of] Truth and falsehood. As for the foam, it vanishes away as scum; but as for that which benefits humanity, it remains on the earth. Thus does Allah present examples.”
