DARKNESS is the ABSENCE of LIGHT. It is NOT the presence of anything. Darkness is hollow and consuming. It sucks the “you” out of “you” and leaves you empty. A person engulfed by darkness wanders like a vagabond searching for a ray of light to bathe in but unlike a vagabond, never finds it. The parable of their entanglement with the dark is given in Surah An Nur, in the 40th ayah in the interpretation of the meaning:
“””Or [they are] like darkness within an unfathomable sea which is covered by waves, upon which are waves, over which are clouds – darkness, some of them upon others. When one puts out his hand [therein], he can hardly see it. And he to whom Allah has not granted light – for him there is no light.”””[24:40]
Thus, losing themselves completely in this darkness
Why? It says in Surah Al Hashr in the 19th ayah in the interpretation of the meaning:
“And be not like those who forgot Allah, so He made them forget themselves.”[59:19]
Now, there they are searching, looking for a ray of hope, unable to find any. They turned away from their nature, their fitrah upon which they were created, end up losing themselves in the process. Struggling hard, to find a way out of it. Too bad, it’s too late…or is it?
“”””””Respond to your Lord before a Day comes from Allah of which there is no repelling. No refuge will you have that day, nor for you will there be any denial. [42:47] Surah ash shu’ara]””””””
But WHAT does the LORD WANT?
“”””O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous –
Who has made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky as a canopy, and sent down water (rain) from the sky and brought forth therewith fruits as a provision for you. Then do not set up rivals unto Allah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped).[2:21-22]Surah Al Baqarah”””””””””
WHAT do we KNOW?
Oh did you forget?
“”””””””””””And [mention] when your Lord took from the children of Adam – from their loins – their descendants and made them testify of themselves, [saying to them], “Am I not your Lord?” They said, “Yes, we have testified.” [This] – lest you should say on the day of Resurrection, “Indeed, we were of this unaware.[7:172]””””””””””””
You made a promise, did you forget it. You say you didn’t? You don’t remember?
It’s embedded inside you, just LOOK WITHIN.
“”””””””””””””Do they not contemplate within themselves? Allah has not created the heavens and the earth and what is between them except in truth and for a specified term. And indeed, many of the people, in [the matter of] the meeting with their Lord, are disbelievers.[30:8]Surah Ar Rum””””””””””
What? No one created the universe? How was it created?
“””Or were they created by nothing, or were they the creators [of themselves]?Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain. Surah At Tur[52:35-36]”””
So, something creating itself out of nothing and something creating itself seem more logical to you, than it having a creator, so much so that you come up with theories like multiple universe and infinitely oscillating universe out of your posterior?
What? You are not sure?
“””Rather, they are not certain. [52:36] Surah At Tur”””
There’s the darkness within which you have buried your fitrah and your intellect.
While there’s still time:
“”””””Respond to your Lord before a Day comes from Allah of which there is no repelling. No refuge will you have that day, nor for you will there be any denial. [42:47] Surah ash shu’ara]””””
