Insight into the ultimate truth is only gained through love, not power because it’s received, and not achieved. It requires sacrificing one’s convictions to align with the actual truth, whether that coincides with what one held as truth or not. It also requires a recognition and surrendering to a greater reality than the reality one is bound to through their individual perception; a recognition that everything is unknown except what Allaah makes known and everything is uncertain except what Allaah establishes. It’s a recognition of mankind’s inherent inertia and ignorance, and an acceptance of that existential void that we were created with and from. The very hollowness that Iblees thought he could exploit was the same one that humbled Adam and his wife to repent.
