The struggle between good and evil is as ancient as the history of humankind on earth. Because the purpose of existence and creation is to expose those who are good and those who are evil by the results of the test they take.
The Almighty Creator taught humankind how to struggle with the malice that began with the first bloodshed that occurred by the provocation of the nafs and saitan which both lead humans on earth astray, by sending Prophets and Books. That day onwards the human race advanced by making choices between these two using their freewill, some people took a stand in favour of good, some took a stand in favour evil and others disappeared between the two.
Those in favour of good went through various struggles to ensure that what the prophets and holy books had taught them and good would dominate the world.
“Righteousness is not whether you turn your face towards East or West; but the righteousness is to believe in Allah, the Last Day, the Angels, the Books and the Prophets, and to spend wealth out of love for Him on relatives, orphans, helpless, needy travellers, those who ask for and on the redemption of captives; and to establish Salah (prayers), to pay Zakah (alms), to fulfil promises when made, to be steadfast in distress, in adversity, and at the time of war. These people are the truthful and these are the pious.” (Baqara 177)
Islamic civilisation has institutionalised this struggle with the construction of thousands of foundations and this struggle continues today. Due to these various establishments which we come face to face with support is being carried to all four corners of the world. A significant foundation which has been established with this aim, Turkiye Diyanet Foundation has been a pioneer of carrying goodness in its 40 years of work.
