Human and the Law of Reflection

For every individual at any given moment there is an ‘existential reflection’, that is the result of their thoughts, words, and actions which may be either positive or negative. This reflection reverberates in the higher realms and passes through a filter that measures the individual’s capacity (“for Allah does not burden any soul beyond its capacity ”- Al-Baqarah:286). Subsequently, determining an appropriate reflection within the framework of justice, being either positive or negative, and refers them to positive and negative networks. These networks, in turn, cast these reflections onto the individual … “He leads astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills …” (An-Nahl:93).

For instance, regarding negative reflection, God states in the Quran that we ourselves cast Satan upon the individual: “And whoever is ignorant of the divine mercifulness – We appoint for him a devil, and he is to him a companion.” (Az Zukhruf:36).

The reflection’s reaction is initially to intensify the very same reflection for the individual, and in the second step, it generates positive or negative awareness in relation to the individual’s reflection, leading to either guidance or misguidance of that person. Therefore, a person who is tightfisted is more likely to become even more tightfisted than to become less tightfisted, or it is expected for a mean person to become even more mean, and an aware person to become ever more aware.

Therefore, in the Law of Reflection: “… Indeed, Allah sends astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills …” (Fatir:8), we can well understand on what basis, the sequence of human guidance or misguidance is given with the help of either networks, or whether it is Satan that is cast upon the individual or they will be subject to guidance.
