What is the right guidance actually? You will find hundread of people spreading their believe, faith, ideology through out the world in their own way. People are considering right as wrong while wrong as right deeds. Certainly that’s what our beloved prophet (PBUH) mentioned about the last hours. Nevertheless, we should keep asking Allah for the right guidance – to guide all of us in the right path in the light of Quran and Hadith.
O Dear brother and sisters, let’s start reading Quran and make our mind to understand it. Mere reading the Quran is not good enough to guide us to the right path if we do not understand it. How many of we are actually aware of the meaning of first few lines of The glorious Holy Quran? There is clear guidance for all of us –
I seek refuge to Allah from outcast satan. In the name of Allah the beneficient, the merciful.
Alif Laam Meem. This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah – Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them; And who believe in the Revelation sent to thee, and sent before thy time, and (in their hearts) have the assurance of the Hereafter. They are on (true) guidance, from their Lord, and it is these who will prosper.
As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe. Allah hath set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing, and on their eyes is a veil; great is the penalty they (incur). Of the people there are some who say: “We believe in Allah and the Last Day;” but they do not (really) believe. Fain would they deceive Allah and those who believe, but they only deceive themselves, and realise (it) not! In their hearts is a disease; and Allah has increased their disease: And grievous is the penalty they (incur), because they are false (to themselves).
When it is said to them: “Make not mischief on the earth,” they say: “Why, we only Want to make peace!” Of a surety, they are the ones who make mischief, but they realise (it) not. When it is said to them: “Believe as the others believe:” They say: “Shall we believe as the fools believe?” Nay, of a surety they are the fools, but they do not know. When they meet those who believe, they say: “We believe;” but when they are alone with their evil ones, they say: “We are really with you: We (were) only jesting.”
Allah will throw back their mockery on them, and give them rope in their trespasses; so they will wander like blind ones (To and fro). These are they who have bartered Guidance for error: But their traffic is profitless, and they have lost true direction, Their similitude is that of a man who kindled a fire; when it lighted all around him, Allah took away their light and left them in utter darkness. So they could not see. Deaf, dumb, and blind, they will not return (to the path).
Surah Al-Baqarah (Verses 1-18)
Ya Allah! Do NOT make us among those Deaf, dumb and blinds – show us the right path always. Amin.
