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.
Even the greatest of secular political scientists today are still incapable of ‘connecting dots’ from the emergence of Pax Britannica to its replacement by Pax Americana, in order to anticipate the imminent culmination of that mysterious process with a Pax Judaica that will witness the Jewish State of Israel inheriting the mantle of ruling State in the world. We connected those dots more than 12 years ago when we published our best-selling book on Islamic eschatology entitled ‘Jerusalem in the Qur’an’.
Secular scholarship is similarly incapable of connecting the dots to discover the relationship of that mysterious 3-staged political process with the equally mysterious removal of real money from the market, and its replacement, around the world, with bogus, fraudulent and utterly Harām paper, plastic and electronic money. We connected those monetary dots in our booklet (also on Islamic eschatology) entitled ‘The Gold Dinar and Silver Dirham – Islam and the Future of Money’.
There are many more dots that must be connected if we are to fully penetrate and understand the messianic reality of the world today.
When a people cannot themselves see, there will always be those who would gleefully exploit the opportunity to put a chain around their necks, weapons in their hands and money in their pockets, in order to lead them to establish such absurdities as a bogus Islamic Caliphate and to recognize and embrace a false and bogus Imām al-Mahdi.
That is precisely what is now emerging in Iraq.
