Quran Surah 2:17

Quran Surah 2: 17:

"Their similitude is that of a man,
Who kindled a fire.
When it illuminated all around him,
God took away their light
And left them in utter darkness
So they could not see."

In this passage (Surah 2:17) the Holy Recital continues the discussion of the Mischiefmakers. The point is that those who may have had an understanding of the Light are in danger of losing it if they follow the path of "mischief," leaving themselves in utter alienation from God.

Quran 2:18

"Deaf, dumb and blind,
They will not return to the path of Light, Love and Peace."

This should be a strong warning to all Muslims and Sufis, Jews and Christians, and anyone else on the path. If we stray from the Path and engage in mischief we will be cut off from the Kingdom.

Thus, those Muslims who engage in terrorism under the banner of Holy Jihad, or those Christians and Jews who practice colonialism and imperialism, or those mischiefmakers who engage in global exploitation and environmental degradation under any banner (e.g. capitalism) are warned.
