Modern society’s obsession with artificial objectives have meant that we have lost in touch with the reality of nature. The Shaykh mentions that is why, the verses in the Quraan when الله describes how He has spread, shaped and expanded the earth, bursting forth from it oceans and springs providing for animals and vegetation, how all these verses have no effect on the hearts.
He goes on to mentions two core abilities of man: the first, how man has the ability to conjure up thoughts and ideas and secondly, what he does to bring those thoughts into practise. In regards to the seeker and their path to success and fortune it is for them to reflect on the Being who created them, reflecting upon the names and attributes of الله. This reflection will lead them to pursue that path which will take them to Him and it is only with this insight of الله will the seeker know whether he/she is fulfilling His rights, thus the second ability is fulfilled.
The Shaykh then goes through verses of Surah Faatiha, the surah in which lay the perfect system in assisting the seeker in completing both the abilities and unravelling to them the foundation and most significant of the names of الله.
