Ayah 22

Surah Al-Mulk, Ayah 22

Reflection Questions:

1. Imagine the scene of a person walking while his face is on the ground vs. the one walking upright in a straight path. Can the one fallen on his face see his surrounding? Can he walk straight and avoid any danger ahead?
2. Which of the 2 is more guided? The one wandering in disbelief to the extent that he sees things to be the opposite of what they are, or the one who knows the truth and acts upon it by following the straight path in his words and deeds, in all situation?
3. So how should we live our life? Just look down and see our own self, follow our own desires or look around and choose our path carefully?

Practical tips:

1. When we read Surah Al Fatihah, sincerely ask Allah to guide us to the straight path.
2. Make du’a for guidance so that we don’t become those who walk upside down i.e. people who disregard the truth but instead follow desire.

Imam Ahmad recorded from Anas bin Malik that it was said, "O Messenger of Allah! How will the people be gathered on their faces'' So the Prophet (ﷺ) replied,
« أَلَيْسَ الَّذِي أَمْشَاهُمْ عَلَى أَرْجُلِهِمْ قَادِرًا عَلَى أَنْ يُمْشِيَهُمْ عَلَى وُجُوهِهِم »
(Is not He who made them to walk on their legs able to make them walk on their faces'') This Hadith is also recorded in the Two Sahihs.

'Ali reported that Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said to him:
Say," O Allah, direct me to the right path and make me adhere to the straight path," and when you make a mention of right guidance, keep in mind the right path and when you consider of the straight (path), keep in mind the straightness of the arrow.

قُلِ اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِنِي وَسَدِّدْنِي وَاذْكُرْ بِالْهُدَى هِدَايَتَكَ الطَّرِيقَ وَالسَّدَادِ سَدَادَ السَّهْمِ
[Muslim]
