Guidance

What is intended is that Allah, glorified is He, wishes to clarify for us and guide us to the traditions of those who came before us, about whom He said: “Those, they are whom Allah has guided, so follow their guidance.” (al-Anam 6:90) and they are those whom we are commanded to ask for guidance to their path in the ayah: “Guide us to the Straight Path, the path of those who you have favoured.” (al-Fatihah 1:6-7)

He, Exalted is He, prefers for us and commands us to follow their path, and it is the path of those who return to Him. Three matters are mentioned here: clarification, guidance and repentance.
