الآية رقم (7) - وَوَجَدَكَ ضَالًّا فَهَدَى

(7) - (And He found you lost and guided [you], (7))

Lost here carries the meaning of unaware, seeking for the true path. The Prophet (saws) refused polytheism and he would go and reflect, pray and wish that he knew the truthful way. Thereafter, Allah (swt) gave him the guidance.
