Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh my brothers and sisters.
This is another verse from the Quranic reflection series and it is from Surah Al Baqarah.
In the Huda law, he who will Huda? Indeed Allah's guidance is the true guidance. This is verse 120.
And this verse identifies the true source of guidance.
So the first point of reflection is that the verse is a reminder, that true guidance. The true guidance, which we asked for 17 times a day, is to be found in the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
Because that is Allah's guidance, whether it's in the word of Allah, the Quran that we know, or, in the words, actions and approvals of Prophet Muhammad, Salah Salem, which were based on his guidance on Allah's guidance to the prophets on Sunday. So he conveyed to us the guidance
interpreted the Quran.
The second point of reflection, is that when Satan tricked Adam and Eve into eating from the forbidden tree, he pretended to be their sincere friend, Allah says in surah, an hour off, will cause someone whom are in need likoma lamina Nasruddin for the Lahoma behold, Satan swore to both of them. Truly, I am your sincere advisor, but he misguided both of them through deception. So reality is that
if the guidance is not coming from Allah,
then it's going to be a form of deception. Though it may seem appealing, and pleasing to our eyes, sounds good. Feels good. But if it's not coming from Allah, then it's deception. It's satanic deception, who should never be fooled by that? Baraka Luffy was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
