يهدي من يشاء الى صراط مستقيم 10:25

…يهدي من يشاء الى صراط مستقيم

The word “مَن” in Arabic means “the one/Whomsoever/Who”. This word could either be A.) The Doer. For example: “Whomsoever wants.” & B.) The Object. For example: “I want Whomsoever.”

And يشأ is a verb that loosely means, “To Want”.

Let’s read this ayah closely. Notice how radically the ayah’s meaning is changed just by changing the interpretation of how “مَن” is being used.

First: “Allah invites to the Abode of Peace, and He guides whomsoever HE wants to the straight path.”

But it could also easily mean: “Allah invites to the Abode of Peace, and He guides WHOMSOEVER wants to the straight path.”

Thus we do what we always do with multiple layers of meaning, we blend them together.

Tie The Camel + Have Faith In Allah.
