Not Excused!

Peace be upon you. Again, we're late, sorry, et cetera. Here we go.

Surah Ash-Shams, Verse 8:
فَأَلْهَمَهَا فُجُورَهَا وَتَقْوَاهَا
Then He inspired it to understand what is right and wrong for it;

The soul was given the knowledge, the criterion. Did we just hear our brains counter, "Ignorance is bliss"? Well, is it any ignorance if you've all the knowledge you need to not be excused?
If a machine was made perfect (if, that is, by humans) and programmed efficiently, and given 'artificial intelligence', and yet it erred while running, what's to blame? Not the fashioner, no, he was quite thorough in his work.
Actually, we're all caught. We can't say, 'We didn't know'/'We didn't understand it at all'/ etc. When the Message came to us, we felt our heart tug us towards it. The Right or the Left won. Or will, if Allah Wills.
All in all, the bottom line is - we can't skitter behind excuses that will never be applicable to us. We must embrace the Truth when it comes, for it will come, by the Will of Allah.
