“Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise…[It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an.

 نُّورٌ‌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ‌ ۗ يَهْدِي اللَّـهُ لِنُورِ‌هِ مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَيَضْرِ‌بُ اللَّـهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ ٣٥

“…Light upon Light! Allah guides to His Light whom He wills: Allah presents examples for people: and Allah is Knower of  all things.” (Holy Quran, The Light 24:35)

Those Whom Allah Guide – has Waliyun Murshida (Saintly Guide)

وَتَرَى الشَّمْسَ إِذَا طَلَعَت تَّزَاوَرُ عَن كَهْفِهِمْ ذَاتَ الْيَمِينِ وَإِذَا غَرَبَت تَّقْرِضُهُمْ ذَاتَ الشِّمَالِ وَهُمْ فِي فَجْوَةٍ مِّنْهُ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ مِنْ آيَاتِ اللَّـهِ ۗ مَن يَهْدِ اللَّـهُ فَهُوَ الْمُهْتَدِ ۖ وَمَن يُضْلِلْ فَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُ وَلِيًّا مُّرْشِدًا ﴿١٧

18:17 – ” Wa tarash shamsa idha tala’at tazawaru an kahfihim dhata al yameeni wa idha gharabat taqriduhum dhataash shimali wa hum fee faj watin minhu, Dhalika min ayati Allahi, man yahdillahu fahuwal Muhtadi, wa man yudlil falan tajida lahu waliyyan murshida. (Surah al Kahf)

“And You would have seen the sun, when it rose, declining to the right from their Cave, and when it set, turning away from them to the left, while they lay in the open space in the midst of the Cave. That was from the Signs of Allah: He whom Allah guides is rightly guided; but he whom Allah Leaves to stray,- for him you will never find Saintly Guide to the Right Way.” (Holy Quran, the Cave)

Allah Guides whom  He Wills

عَلَيْهَا تِسْعَةَ عَشَرَ٣٠  وَمَا جَعَلْنَا أَصْحَابَ النَّارِ‌ إِلَّا مَلَائِكَةً ۙ وَمَا جَعَلْنَا عِدَّتَهُمْ إِلَّا فِتْنَةً لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُ‌وا لِيَسْتَيْقِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ وَيَزْدَادَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِيمَانًا ۙ وَلَا يَرْ‌تَابَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ ۙ وَلِيَقُولَ الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَ‌ضٌ وَالْكَافِرُ‌ونَ مَاذَا أَرَ‌ادَ اللَّـهُ بِهَـٰذَا مَثَلًا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ يُضِلُّ اللَّـهُ مَن يَشَاءُ وَيَهْدِي مَن يَشَاءُ ۚ وَمَا يَعْلَمُ جُنُودَ رَ‌بِّكَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۚ وَمَا هِيَ إِلَّا ذِكْرَ‌ىٰ لِلْبَشَرِ‌ ﴿٣١

74:30-31:  “‘Alayha tis’ata ‘ashar. (30) Wa ma ja’alna asHabaan nari illa Malayikatan wa ma ja’alna ‘iddatahum illa fitnatan lil ladheena kafaro liyastayqina al ladheena otol kitaba wa yazdada al ladheena Amano Imanan, wa la yartaba al ladheena otol kitaba wal muminona, wa liyaqola al ladheena fee quloobihim maradun wal kafirona maa dhaa arada Allahu bihadha mathalan,
kadhalika yudillu Allahu man yasha o wa yahdee man yasha o, wa ma ya’lamu junoda rabbika illa Huwa,  wa ma hiya illa dhikra lilbashar.” (31) (Surat al Muddaththir)

  • “Over it is 19. (30) And We have not made the keepers/Guardians of the Fire except angels. And We have not fixed their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve – in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty [Yaqeen ]/and be convinced, and the believers increase in faith [will increase the faith of the believers]. and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the disbelievers may say, “What does Allah intend by this as an example?”
    Thus does Allah leave astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And this (mention of the Fire) is not but a reminder/warning to humanity.
