Cherisher has kept a specific Light in man

Quran Chapter 11-17 (Pt-12, Stg-3) (L-1358) – درس قرآن

Cherisher has kept a specific Light in man

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


We knew from this verse that Allah Almighty, Who is Lord of the mankind, has bestowed many physical powers and of the brain to the human being, so that he should choose the Right Path of life for himself by using power of the brain, but his sense is entangled mostly in the confusion of absurd ideas and superstitions, and the Open Way is not visible to him. Apparent ostentation of the world conceal it from him and his faculty or power, by which external objects are perceived, (sense) continue struggling in the darkness. For making the sense to understand about the Right Path in such darkness, his Cherisher (Allah Almighty) has kept a specific Light in him; which exist, more or less, in every human being.


The person, who does not take effect from apparent glittering things of the world and goes straight forward being saved from its contaminations, into him, this Light shows its splendor, and then the Right Path appears in such Light before his sense, which Allah Almighty has determined for the mankind, and the name of which is “The Natural Religion”. This Light exists in every human being naturally. If the human sense has been covered due to the love with the world; then this Light lies concealed behind the screen. The Right Path is not seen to the sense and the mankind goes astray.


But that individual begins to see the Correct Path; in whom this Light works properly. For his help, Allah Almighty has sent His last Messenger; Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) along with His last Word; Holy Qur’an. For the same purpose, Messenger Moses (peace be upon him) was sent before him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), but now, summary of Torah and all other Scriptures revealed before it, has been recorded in Holy Qur’an. Therefore, all those persons who have inner Light; get everything in this Holy Book in full detail; which is visible to them in the Light of their sense. So they put belief in it immediately and fix it as their Guide. Mercy of God Almighty descends on them.


It is known clearly from this verse that the Perfect Conductor of the entire clans of the world i.e. the Jews, the Christians, the Arabs, the Magi, the Foreigners and the Idolaters, is Holy Qur’an, at this time. The person, who will refuse the Holy Qur’an, cannot obtain deliverance, whether he belongs to any class of the world. It is possible that he prospers temporarily in the world, but when he will die, then he will possess nothing beside repentance and woe. He will not be able to answer his actual God, The Most High, on the Day of Resurrection. If he had used his sense correctly then he would have been saved from the doom on that Day. But he fell under adversity, so he will weep on that Day.
