The Dodging Truth

A simple man
A man was brought to the second caliph hadhrat Omar.
People had asked this man, that how he started his day.
The man had replied: I started my day to the likeness of Fitna (temptation), dislike for the truth,
giving credence to Judaism and Christianity,
believing to the unseen and accepting a thing which does not exists.
Hadhrat Omar asked his servant to call  Hadhrat Ali (a.s.) to solve this.
When Ali (a.s.) arrived, he was informed about the beliefs (misguided) of this man.
Imam Ali (a.s.) said: What this man is saying is right.
This man says that he loves Fitna (temptation), Allah says "Indeed your wealth and your children are Fitna."
He dislikes Truth. Allah says "The time of death and the final breath is Truth, and it will certainly come."
He testifies the Jews and the Christians. Allah says "Jews say that Christians have no foundation  and Christian believe that the Jews have no base."
He believes in the unseen, that is "God".
A thing which he accepts that has not come into existence is Qayamat (Day of Judgement).
