Go(o)d guidance

Sheikh Eşref Efendi, Sufiland  04.02.2016
  • May Allah give us good guidance, physically and spiritually.

    Who can claim that this world is without divine guidance? 

    Who can claim that this world came into creation without support, with the will of a divine presence? That it came without anybody?  

    Who came without existence into existence, has no true existence. Anybody that can exist by itself, they have an existence and they have the space for existence. And they are the space and time of existence. And the one that created this world, as this world couldn’t have come into existence all by itself, as it cannot spin by itself. 

    How can this planet know where to spin to? And the Lord says, everything is spinning, everything in existence. And with guidance. 

    Without guidance there would be chaos, and in chaos there is no existence. They say this world exists amidst chaos. 

    We say no, which means neither no nor yes for those that don’t understand. 

    What looks like chaos is actually in divine order, going from one point to another, from an unknown point to another.

    Where will this world be at the end of time? Who knows what is at the end of time?

    Who knows what is time?
    Neither do we know what time is nor the tide.

    How can there be tide and then flood?
    Who decides that?

    Do you think the sun or the universe have any clue about themselves? 

    We get a hint about that. 

    If you are not given a hint, then how can you understand?
    A baby has no clue where it is. But it has to be given a hint.

    And everything is under guidance of the Lord.
    And may Allah give everything in creation its guidance
