Allah the Almighty has once again avail us an opportunity to reflect on the purpose of our existence. The three whose sacrifice and devotion we are commemorating are dear and loved ones of Allah Almighty. We shall be counted among their company if we imitate their devotion and sacrifice.

Truthfulness is essential for one to attain the love and pleasure of Allah Almighty.One who who is not truthful to his fellow human beings can never be truthful to Allah Almighty. The Holy Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (saw) has said that truthfulness leads to piety which ultimately leads to Paradise whereas falsehood leads to vice ultimately leading to Hell. He did not only preach these words; he practiced them. He was known among his contemporaries as the truthful, the trustworthy. He said that if a man adopts truthfulness he would shun all evil.
