The Aim of Prayer
We do not expect any kind of help or
support from your rivals and clammier of divinity. Because of their
denial to accept the divinity of God Almighty, they can not be of any
help for the seekers and followers of the path of God. The path of God,
is the path followed by the prophets, is a source for accomplishing
truth, justice, brotherhood, and co-existence for the mankind; and
bestows exaltedness upon human beings, while condemning and negating all
sort of prejudices, oppressions and unequal treatments (or preferences)
shown towards a certain class or group.
How, the rivals of God and clammier
of divinity who are devoted entirely to this shameful worldly existence,
and who by their usurping behavior have not left any stone unturned in
their efforts to destroy all the real human values, could be of any help
to the bondsmen of God? They are at permanent war and carry a burning
wrath against the God's bondsmen (believers).
Therefore, we only seek help from God
Almighty, the power of intellect and decision making, incorporated by
him in our primordial nature, the ways and means provided for living
this life; the natural and historical laws, which if could be understood
may act as a guide for our thoughts and actions; and also from all the
by products of diving power which are His mighty soldiers in the service
If a man could have a superior and more
vital (matter of life and death) aim that the "guidance",
certainly that would have been included in the Surah Praise, a surah
which is the opening chapter of the Holy Quran and forms an important
part of the prayer and it would have been recited as a prayer for
acceptance from God. It is by way of His direction or guidance, that
the intellect and experience set their course in the correct,
advantageous, and suitable position, widening the path of wayfarer.
Otherwise, without it, the intellect & experience would turn into a
light in the hands of a their, or a piece of sharp blade in the hand of
The straight path is the same
primordial destined program, which as been prepared in accordance with
the most accurate estimation regarding the available sources, the needs,
and shortages within the bounds of natural possibilities for the
mankind. IT is a path opened towards the humanity by the God's prophets
who themselves were pioneer searchers and wayfarers on this path. The
path if followed by a man could be analogized like a continuous
streamlined flow of water over a smooth and straight surface, which by
itself and without any interference, without showing any force or power
is flowing towards the final destination, which is nothing but the
infinite ocean of human exaltedness.
It is a program if could be implemented
and materialized under a just administration to manage the lives of the
people, will provide independence, security, benefits, cooperation, self
sufficiency, love, brotherhood, and will bring an end to all bitter
accidents and tragedies associated with the mankind in their past. But
what is this path and program supposed to be? Every one in this amazed
bazaar is a claimer and each group condemn the other. Therefore there
must be an indication, in accordance with this brief preface, regarding
this straight path, and to specify it from the point of view of Holy
