Who can say, “I have realized the truth.”?! Who dares to say that he knows himself? It is not out of modesty to say: “Allah knows best.” Rather it is the only sure truth in this world. Actually we are completely ignorant of what is happening even under our eyes and ears. In spite of our ignorance, each sect sides fanatically with its own views. Each group thinks that they alone have the truth. Consequently, they give themselves the right to judge others and set gallows and holocaust for them .
If we realize our ignorance and our position, the door of mercy and love will be opened in our hearts, and life on earth becomes worthy to live!
So when will we know that we do not know?
