CHAPTER 8

THE BELIEF CONCERNING MAN'S ORIGINAL NATURE (fitra) AND HIS TRUE GUIDANCE (hidaya)

 Says the Shaykh Abu Ja'far: Our belief concerning this is that Allah has undoubtedly created man with a disposition towards (accepting) the unity of Allah. And this is (in consonance with) what He, the Mighty and Glorious, says: "The true faith of Allah, for the acceptance of which He has created man" [30, 29]. And concerning His saying, exalted is He: "It is not for Allah to lead a people astray after He hath rightly guided them, until He hath clearly shewn to them what they ought to fear" [9, 116]. Imam Jafar as-Sadiq said: (He does not lead them astray) until He informs them of what pleases and what displeases Him.

And concerning the saying of Him, who is exalted above all: "And (He) inspired it (with the consciousness of) what is wrong for it and what is right for it," [91, 8], he (Imam Ja'far) said: (That means) He made manifest to it (the soul) what (acts) are permissible and what sins are to be avoided. And He, Exalted is He, says: "Verily We have shown him the way, whether he be grateful or disbelieving" [76, 3]; and (concerning this) he (Imam Ja'far) said: (That is) We have made it (the true religion) known to him, whether he accepts it or not.

And concerning the saying of Him, who is mighty and Glorious: "And as for Thamud, We gave them guidance, but they preferred blindness to guidance" [41, 16], Imam Ja'far explained: (And this) despite their knowing (the truth). Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq was asked concerning the saying of Allah, the Mighty and Glorious: "And (did We not) guide him to the parting of the two mountain paths?" [90, 10]. He said: (This refers to) the path of righteousness and the path of wickedness. And he said: That which Allah has kept from the knowledge of human beings is entirely set apart from them. And he also said: Allah has adduced reasons to mankind for what He has given them and what He has made known to them.
