The servant is in need of guidance, 3 at every moment and in every breath, in everything that happens to him and passes him by, for he is in the midst of many matters from which he cannot separate himself:
(i) Matters in which he found himself because of ignorance, rather than guidance, so he is in need of seeking guidance to the truth with respect to these.
(ii) Matters in which he knows the guidance, but did not act upon it in the proper manner, so he is in need of repenting from them.
(iii) There are matters concerning which he did not know the aspect of guidance in them, neither in terms of knowledge nor action.
