The Discretion of The One

The Topic of Fate (qadar) is the one topic that has captivated and occupied humanity throughout all time, and that only a select few, of a certain level of enlightenment, have been able to decipher…

In order to unravel the mystery of fate, one must first adopt and discern the concept of Unity.

So long as the reality of Unity isn’t conscientiously understood and applied, one’s acceptance of fate cannot surpass the level of blind faith.

This is precisely the reason why vicegerency has been given to humans, and not the jinn[1], who used to reign on earth before humans were created.

The jinn, though acquainted with almost all the mechanics of the system, are restricted from apprehending two core realities:

1. The mystery of Unity.

2. The mystery of fate.

Because the jinn don’t have the capacity to understand or carry these truths, humans were created with the necessary cognizance and capacity to fathom these mysteries.

Based on the verse;

“I will make upon the earth (the body) a vicegerent (conscious beings who will live with the awareness of the Names).” (Quran 2:30)

Humans were created with an innate capacity to comprehend the mysteries of Unity and fate, hence becoming worthy of vicegerency.

To apprehend Unity, one must first study the meaning of the ‘Word of Unity’ (Kalima-i Tawhid), followed by an analysis and an evaluation of the meaning of the 112th chapter (al-Ikhlas) of the Quran.

It is impossible to understand the reality of the Absolute Existence, referred to with the name Allah, if we don’t first absorb the meaning of chapter al-Ikhlas.

To ‘READ’ the chapter al-Ikhlas does not mean to merely repeat the words in this short chapter. One may repeat the chapter al-Ikhlas 100,000 times without ever once ‘READING’ the verse ‘Allah is One’. To read this verse means to understand, feel, and live its truth.
