SHAFAQNA – The one that his insight does not function can only see this world and has stopped in that and cannot see further than the world. The one with insight and the one without insight can both benefit from the world but one for the hereafter and the other for the world itself. The difference between these two is in their way of looking at the world; the one with insight benefits from the word and considers it a tool but the one without insight considers the world as target and aims for it [1]. It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: Whoever looks at the world and finds its truth, the world will give him insight and vision so that he does not fall in love with the world but whoever looks at the world with materialistic vision the world will make him blind [2].
