blind person is one who is bereft of spiritual insight and pleasure. A person
who blindly follows the practices of their family just because they are born
into a Muslim household is called a Muslim. Similarly, a person who is born to
a Christian family becomes a Christian. This is the very reason that such
people give no regard to God, the Messenger or the Qur’an. Even the love such
people possess for religion is questionable. Some remain in the company of
those who act insolently towards God and His Messenger. This is wholly due to
the fact that such people do not possess a spiritual eye. They are empty of
love for religion. Does a person who is full of love desire anything that is at
odds with the liking of their beloved? Hence, Allah the Almighty teaches that
He is prepared to bestow His bounties if a person is prepared to receive them.
The offering of this supplication prepares one to receive divine guidance.[i]
