God Is My Witness (17:96 – 17:97)

God Is My Witness

[17:96] Say, “GOD suffices as a witness between me and you. He is fully Cognizant of His worshipers, Seer.”
[17:97] Whomever GOD guides is the truly guided one. And whomever He sends astray, you will never find for them any lords and masters beside Him. We will summon them on the Day of Resurrection forcibly; blind, dumb, and deaf. Their destination is Hell; whenever it cools down, we will increase their fire. 

[13:43] Those who disbelieved will say, “You are not a messenger!” Say, “GOD suffices as a witness between me and you, and those who possess knowledge of the scripture.”

A Guiding Teacher is a Prerequisite

[18:17] You could see the sun when it rose coming from the right side of their cave, and when it set, it shone on them from the left, as they slept in the hollow thereof. This is one of GOD’s portents.* Whomever GOD guides is the truly guided one, and whomever He sends astray, you will not find for him a guiding teacher. 

[2:18] Deaf, dumb, and blind; they fail to return.

In the header of 17:96 it states “God is My Witness”, when you see Appendix 32 the messenger writes:

Delivering this important piece of information is one of the responsibilities given to me as God’s Messenger of the Covenant. It is not my personal opinion.”
