Levels of al-Yaqeen (Certainty)

بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد

🚩Al-Yaqeen has three levels:

🌟1. Sure Knowledge (علم اليقين)
كَلَّا لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ عِلْمَ الْيَقِينِ
{Nay! If you knew with a sure knowledge} [Surah al-Takaathur (102): 5]

🌟2. Certainty of Sight (عين اليقين)
ثُمَّ لَتَرَوُنَّهَا عَيْنَ الْيَقِينِ
{And again, you shall see it with certainty of sight!}  [Surah al-Takaathur (102): 7]

🌟3. True (or absolute) Certainty  (حق اليقين)
إِنَّ هَـٰذَا لَهُوَ حَقُّ الْيَقِينِ
{Verily, this! This is an absolute Truth with certainty.} [Surah al-Waaqi`ah (56): 95]

🔴1. Your knowledge that there is water in the valley.
🔵2. Seeing the water with your own eyes.
🔴3. Drinking from that water.

📑Another example:
🔵1. When someone tells you that he has honey and you have no reason to doubt him, this is Certainty.
🔴2. He shows it to you, and this increases your certainty.
🔵3. He lets you taste it, and this is the highest level of Certainty.

📑One more example:
🔴1. Our firm belief in the existence of al-Jannah (Paradise) and al-Naar (Fire) - this is Sure Knowledge.
🔵2. On the Day of Judgment, when the Paradise will be brought near to the righteous, and the (Hell) Fire will be placed in full view of the wrongdoers - this is certainty of sight.
🔴3. When people of the Paradise enter the Paradise and the people of the Fire enter the Fire - on that Day it would be True Certainty.
