The General Pattern; of Islamic Thought in the Qur’an

About Walayah (2)

Any walayah except the walayah of God and His viceroys is the walayah of taghut and Satan. The acceptance of Satan’s walayah makes Satan dominant over all the constructive and creative forces of man which he will use in the way of his own lusts. As far as taghut does not consider any essentiality for anything except his own benefits and due to his lack of information about man’s needs and his possibilities in Nature, his leadership for human community is the origin of damage and loss of man’s valuable energies. The very lack of Information in the community under the dominance of t taghut’s walayah deprives its people of the brightness of knowledge, humanity and God’s life-giving rules, and confines them in the darkness of ignorance, lusts, selfishness and perverseness. The Holy Qur’an says:

“When thou recites the Our’an, seek refuge in God from the accursed Satan; he has no authority over those who believe and trust in their Lord; his authority is over those who take him for their friend and ascribe associates to God. (16:98-100)

….brings them forth from the darkness into the light. And the unbelievers-their patrons are idols, that bring them forth from the light into the darkness; those are the inhabitants of the Fire, therein dwelling forever. “(2:257)
