“O mankind, there has come to you a conclusive proof from your Lord, and We have sent down to you a clear light. ” (Holy Qur’an 4:174)
“Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The Parable of His Light is as if there were a Niche and within it a Lamp: the Lamp enclosed in Glass: the glass as it were a brilliant star: Lit from a blessed Tree, an Olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil is well-nigh luminous, though fire scarce touched it: Light upon Light! Allah doth guide whom He will to His Light: Allah doth set forth Parables for men: and Allah doth know all things.” (Holy Qur’an 24:35)
Ask Allah (swt) to guide you. Take the Holy Qur’an off the shelf and start to read it. Do not just read it ponder it. As you do things will become more clear. The greater the clarity the greater the light. The greater the light you will actually feel more relieved. It will actually change the spiritual density of your body. You will feel refreshed.
“The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not take it on is like that of an ass who carries volumes books. Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of Allah . And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.” (Holy Qur’an 62:5)
Why does Allah (swt) compare the scholars (whom were entrusted with the Torah) with a donkey that is over loaded with copious volumes of books?
I will let you ponder over this. However, I’ll give you a clue. A donkey is considered ‘a beast of burden’.
“Blessed is He who sent down the Furqan (the Criterion) upon His Servant that he may be to the worlds a warner.” (Holy Qur’an 25:1)
The Holy Qur’an is Al Furqan. It is a criteria and it is a clear light. The Holy Qur’an is THE filter.
As I said from the beginning. Light is information and darkness is lack of information. Anyone whom does not want you to seek information does not want you to walk in the light and be of the light. They want you to remain in a darkness. What about artificial light or disinformation?
So someone may ask, “Brother, how do we know the difference between disinformation and information, between light and artificial light.”
Information (Light) is divine, in all its forms, and manifestations. It is perfection.
Disinformation (Artificial Light) is always human in origin. It may claim to be information, but unless it has divine mandate and free from imperfection it is still artificial light.
A plant can be fooled by a light bulb. It can and they do react to a light bulb in the way they would react to sunlight. But Allah (swt) has given you oh brothers and sisters, oh mankind an intellect.
Disinformation is a artificial light.
“Or (the Unbelievers’ state) is like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, overwhelmed with billow topped by billow, topped by (dark) clouds: depths of darkness, one above another: if a man stretches out his hands, he can hardly see it! for any to whom Allah gives not light, there is no light!” (Holy Qur’an 24:40)
For those who are not informed (in darkness) or dealing with (artificial light) they have upon them veils. Layers upon layers of veils. As one goes further into the depths they get further from the light. May Allah (swt) protect you and I from this. May Allah (swt) open the hearts of all truth seekers and guide them.
Darkness (lack of information) has layers, it has depths. The closer we are to the light (information) the more vibrant we will become.
May Allah (swt) make you among those upon whom light (information) upon light (information) is given. May the Holy Qur’an increase you in luminosity. May the Holy Qur’an be an argument for you on the day of judgement and not an argument against you!
Pray to your Creator for discernment. You are not a plant. Your a highly evolved intellect with the ability for abstract thinking, and reflection.
The sun existed before mankind came into existence. The light bulb is a product of human engineering.
There is a difference!
