Nor is He contained by the six directions as all created things are.

Cteed person does not step out or belief except by disavowing what brought him into it. We add to this that there is no stratagem or way by which crwed can avoid or escape disobedience to Allah except with Allah’s help; nor does anyone have the strength to put obedience to Allah into practice and remain firm in it, except if Allah makes it possible for them to do so.


In his delusory attempt to investigate the Unseen, he is seeking a secret that can never be uncovered, and he ends up an evil-doer, telling nothing but lies.

He is Exalted in His purity above any evil or perdition and He is perfect far beyond any fault or flaw – “He will not be asked about what He does but they will he asked.

Delving into it and reflecting too much about it only leads to destruction and loss, and results in rebelliousness. We say about Allah’s unity believing by Allah’s help – that Allah is One, without any partners.

This is a fundamental aspect of belief and a necessary element of all knowledge and recognition of Allah’s Oneness and Lordship.

And Qira’at al-Kitabreading the book, and the reward or punishments and in as-Sirat the Bridge and al-Mizan the Balance.

Anyone who speaks well of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peaceand his wives and offspring, who are all pure and untainted by any impurity, is free from the accusation of hypocrisy.

Be Mindful O Mankind! Moreover, it contains allusions to the unorthodox and deviant views of the Shi’ahKhawarij and such mystics as had departed from the right path. Repentance – A Supplication.

All the believers are ‘friends’ of Allah and the noblest of them in the sight of Allah are those who are the most obedient and who most closely follow the Qur’an. His angels, His imqm, His messengers, the Last Day, and belief that the Decree – both the good of it and the evil of it, the sweet of it and the bitter or it – is all from Allah.


We ask forgiveness for the people of wrong action among the believers and, although we are afraid for them, we are not in despair about them. So be extremely careful about thinking and reflecting on this matter or letting doubts about it assail you, because Allah has kept knowledge of the decree away from human beings, and forbidden them to enquire about it, saying in His Book, “He is not asked about what He does but they are asked.
