Those who do not follow the guidance of the Qur’ān are left to their own devices. But man is hasty, unaware of what benefits him and what causes him harm, impulsive, unable to control his reactions even when they bring about evil consequences:
“Yet man prays for evil as eagerly as he prays for good. Truly man is ever hasty.” (Verse 11)
He does not know the ultimate results. He may do something that is evil and precipitate its results unaware that these only bring about immense harm to himself; or he may be aware of such results but is unable to control himself. This is a long, long way away from the assured, calm and consistent guidance given in the Qur’ān. The two ways of Qur’ānic guidance and human desire are too widely divergent.
