Refuting the claim : ‘Allah has not written for me the guidance’
Posted by Enlightenment into Islam Center
In our past lecture’s summaries on the blog, you must have noticed that we mentioned some points used to refute the claim of those who say “Allah has not written for me, the guidance”
Below are the main points collected from the lecture’s summary. (Note: All these points are noted down in detail in the blog. You can check Importance of Studying the Names of Allah[Part 6,7,8 & 9] )
1-Deal with your guidance as you deal with your worldly need
Allah (Subhanaahu wa Ta’ala) created in our instinct, the desire to seek means . e.g when you become hungry, you repel this hunger by eating. Similarly, you should do the same to be guided, that is seek knowledge.
2-How do you know that Allah has not written the guidance for you?
No one knows what has been written for anyone except Allah.
3-You are following Dhann (doubts, wishful thinking) and this is a lie against Allah.
4-If taking Qadr as an excuse to commit sins is acceptable, then there is no wisdom or need for sending Messengers.
Why would Allah send books and Messengers, if He (Subhanaahu wa Ta’ala) has not given us the choice with regards to our guidance?
5-Man has been given the will to believe or to disbelieve.
Allah Mentioned this in Surat al Kahf, Verse 29
6- The Prophet (Salla Allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) commanded his Companions to work and not to rely on the Qadr (what is written) by abandoning work.
7-Your claim that ‘Allah has not written guidance for me’ contradicts belief in Allah’s Names & Attributes.
Allah is Ar-Ra’ouf (Most Kind), Ar Rahman Ar Raheem (Most Merciful), Al Wadood (One who loves His Slaves and is Loved by His Slaves), Al Qadir. He does not want misguidance for His slaves. Saying this is like accusing Allah with injustice. Astaghfirullaah!
He is the one who guides you to do the good deed, and He is the One who rewards you after you do it. Not only will He reward you, but He becomes happy with you. SubhanAllah! What a Loving ‘Ilah (God) you have. Al Hamdulillah!
