The Dashed out Certainty
The Dashed out Certainty
By going back to the history and glancing into its pages, we shall envisaged some individuals that were blessed with certainty and good doctrine in some portion of their life but for the fact they don’t have resistance and constancy and as a result of transgression they have dashed out their faith and certainty.
One of those people was “Zubair” who was very active more than any other companions of the holy Prophet in terms of defending the guardianship of the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) and the holy household of the holy Prophet (peace be upon them) after the passed away of the holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) and he was also one of the oppressed special companion of the holy Prophet, although that is because he manifested braveness; but by bringing up all his children through Satanic seditions, his faith and doctrines have changed to doubt and indecisiveness and consequently he end up in war and contention with the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him).
The commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) concerning Zubair said:
Zubair did not seize from staying with us (the holy household of the holy Prophet) until the grown up of his children who deviated him from us.
In this respect we must supplicate to Almighty Allah to be kind to us in our certainty so that after then there should be no doubt and denounce in it.
In Friday supplication which was transmitted from Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) we read as follows:
O’ Allah I am requesting sincere faith from You and certainty that there shall be no disbelieve after it.
This type of expression is evidence and obvious that as a result of committing sin the possibility of dashing out certainty and establishment of doubt and indecisiveness or denouncing faith is there.
Those who have entered into the border of certainty must be attentive that passion is very strong and in a situation whereby you are negligence and less concentrated, you can dash out your certainty and be afflicted with denouncing and disbelieving. For this reason we should request from Almighty Allah to grant us certainty which will not be destabilize by anything.
Base on this, the heart that has become luminous by the light of certainty and has taken place deep inside us is possible to be relinquished due to the effect of sin.
Therefore those having spiritual attributes must never in any way be self-centeredness because Almighty Allah who has kept certainty in their heart has the power to take it back from them.
