"The guidance of God is the guidance."

Quran reminds of truths that are hard to argue with.

"The guidance of God is the guidance" is a reminder that people of all religions would not argue against but agree with.

The Prophet is told to argue with this line those who dispute with him. What does this mean?

Does he just repeat those words or does he emphasize on the elaboration and paraphrase it in many different ways.

Can it be said the whole Quran is elaborating and emphasizing on this?

What role does it have with the interpretation of Quran and the unclear from it as well the clear signs from it?  What role does it have with the talk of the rope of God and rope from humans?

What role does it have with the chosen one Adam? What role does it have with Noah? What role does it have with the household of Abraham? And what about the family of Moses (and Aaron or family of Imran or family of David)?

What role does it have with emphasizing Yahya is pure and a master. What role does have with the emphasis on the purity of Mariam vs the clergy that attributed her uncleanness and attributed themselves purity?

What role does it have the Prophethood and Messengerhood?

What role does it have with not taking some of us as lords over others and worshiping God sincerely?

What role does it have with the command that we are to be religious pious scholars free from the world and teaching people by the book and by what we study?

What role does it have to do with proving the true religion?

What role does it have to do not turning on our backs after who is the most praised Messenger dies, as despite his status is but a Messenger, Messengers passed away before him?

What role does it have with respect to knowledge and witnessing God?

What role does it have with God being Master of the authority, thereby giving it to who he pleases and negating from who he pleases, and honoring who he pleases and disgracing who he pleases.

All these are important subjects, and this tautology has a place...

I want you guys to start reflecting about verses, and seeing the flow to the whole Surah, and how things are connected.

This is a pivot in Quran, because it's central argument against Deism, and against Atheism, and I would argue:

- Not only proves God, but proves Prophets and Messengers.
- Not only proves Prophethood, but proves need of succession in all founding Prophets and that they come in groups which due to their closeness are best described as families in ways others are not included but them.
-Not only proves there would be chosen families in the past, but there is definitely one for humanity now.
- Not only proves that, but proves God is the Master of authority and there is one designated with that authority in all times.
- Not only proves that, but proves we are connected to that authority and holder of it.
- Not only proves that, but shows what is meant by relying on God and seeking his help.
- Not only proves that, but shows the evil of those who turn away after witnessing the Messenger is truth, and there is nothing to be done for them by God...by the line "How can God guide a people after...".
-Not only proves that, but proves what essentially the name and rope and hanhold of God would be.
-Not only proves that, but shows what true goodness must be.
-Not only proves that, but shows how clear the issue of religion is, and that with clear reflection religion and Quran is easily proved and the true interpretation is known.


It's time to reflect. Stop being lazy and using your own arguments, but look at what Quran states, and reflect on what God is emphasizing on.

And look at words of Imam Ali in Nahjul balagha and you will see clear philosophy is all him emphasizing "The guidance of God is the guidance" but paraphrasing it with respect to his time, situation, and with respect to Quran and Ahlulbayt (as) and Islam.

You will see Ahlulbayt (as) elaborated and emphasized on this argument through out their lives.

May God guide our hearts and keep it from swerving to the dark misleading paths after he has guided them.
Love of the family of Yaseen is the light of the heavens and the earth.
