reader and seeker of wisdom!
The first step is to leave the forbidden area, then the doubtful
without looking back; then walking (striving) the (up-) right
then you will arrive at the territory of the Halāl, the
allowed and the blessed. There will still be trials, but then
rejoicing and the company of the best of men (or women), the believers
and the SāliHīn,
the righteous, the trustworthy ones.
the first step is to know that Allah, may His Majesty be exalted,
exists and that He has neither direction nor place, not any helper
nor partner and no need towards His creation.
is the point of turning away (taubah) from sins and ill-deeds,
just as leaving the non-existence of someone who ignored and disregarded
Allah and His commandments and who relied on his own insecure
reasoning, the weakest of all foundations! And to turn to the
Mery and Compassion (raHma) of Allah and the prophetic
example set by His Messenger ﷺ.
