When the haq (truth) is pronounced then those who are seeking the truth will see it and accept it, but those who do not wish to see the truth will refuse. What can you do if the bat cannot see the light of the sun? When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) started his message then people called him a soothsayer, magician and many other titles. When a person faces such challenges then he will go through agony and misery and there will be the need for him to consult with a senior. Otherwise, he will fall into depression and become a cabbage. There are two levels of mashwarah: (1) mashwarah pertaining to small matters and things – In this case you can make mashwarah with an ordinary person (2) mashwarah pertaining to things of an important nature – for this you will require the advice of someone professional. The same will apply to deen. The benefit of consultation is that the burden that was over a person is then removed. It is as if a whole mountain has been shifted.
