[2] Excerpts From Shaikh Rabee’s Book Titled ‘Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’ -[One of The Devastating Consequences of Turning Away From Allaah’s Guidance Due to Jahl]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Shaikh Rabee Bin Haadi [may Allaah preserve him] says:

None follows Allaah’s Guidance and knows the station of this guidance -and it is this knowledge [i.e. knowledge of Sharee’ah] – except one whom Allaah has given [sound] intellect and sure knowledge. He knows the consequences behind affairs and their end results -where ignorance, kufr, Shirk and [evil] desires will finally take its people, and where [sound] knowledge, guidance, [sound] intellect and understanding will finally take the person upon [its path].

فَمَنِ ٱتَّبَعَ هُدَاىَ فَلَا يَضِلُّ وَلَا يَشۡقَىٰ

وَمَنۡ أَعۡرَضَ عَن ذِڪۡرِى فَإِنَّ لَهُ ۥ مَعِيشَةً۬ ضَنكً۬ا وَنَحۡشُرُهُ ۥ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ أَعۡمَىٰ

قَالَ رَبِّ لِمَ حَشَرۡتَنِىٓ أَعۡمَىٰ وَقَدۡ كُنتُ بَصِيرً۬ا

قَالَ كَذَٲلِكَ أَتَتۡكَ ءَايَـٰتُنَا فَنَسِيتَہَا‌ۖ وَكَذَٲلِكَ ٱلۡيَوۡمَ تُنسَىٰ

Then whoever follows My Guidance shall neither go astray, nor fall into distress and misery. But whosoever turns away from My Reminder [i.e. neither believes in this Qur’an nor acts on its orders, etc.] verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection. He will say: “O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight [before].” [Allah] will say: “Like this, Our Ayat [proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.] came unto you, but you disregarded them [i.e. you left them, did not think deeply in them, and you turned away from them], and so this Day, you will be neglected [in the Hell-fire, away from Allah’s Mercy].” [Surah Taha 123-126]

Ignorance is the cause of turning away from the remembrance of Allaah and thus the person upon it wanders blindly in the darkness of ignorance, so his final destination, end and abode is that which Allaah [The Blessed and Exalted] stated in this noble Aayah- that he will be raised up blind, so he will say, “Why have you raised me up blind?” So Allaah will say to him, “Like this, Our Ayat came unto you, but you disregarded them, and so this Day, you will be neglected [in the Hell-fire, away from Allah’s Mercy]
