A lamp provides light which allows us to see.
We can walk in a particular direction, for example, when we have a light with which to see.
Without the lamp, and without the light which it provides, we live in darkness, and hence, cannot see.
Most of mankind are today living in darkness and hence, although they have eyes, they yet cannot see. They live in darkness because there is no light from Allah in their hearts
What price do they pay for their blindness?
Allah Most Wise declared in the blessed Qur’an that He has adorned the lowest sky with ‘lamps’:
وَلَقَدْ زَيَّنَّا السَّمَاء الدُّنْيَا بِمَصَابِيح........َ
And, indeed, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with lamps . . .
(Qur’an, al-Mulk, 67:5)
For those (and only those) who have the capacity to discover the relationships that exist between the stars, do the stars function as ‘lamps’ permitting ships for example, to chart a course in the vast expanse of the oceans of the world.
Similarly, only those who have the spiritual insight with which to ‘connect dots’ in history, will be able to read and understand events that are now mysteriously unfolding on the stage of the world. Those unable to do so will invariably respond to an articulation of such understanding with the intellectually tame and stereotyped cry of “conspiracy theory”. They will pay a price for their blindness and their incapacity to penetrate the explanation that the Qur’an provides of the reality of the world today, and for ignoring the several warning in the Qur’an, as well as concrete evidence in the Sīrah, of Jewish conspiracies against Islam and Muslims.
