Your duty!


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

He who knows that Allah is a Witness over him inwardly and outwardly will feel shy that He should see him commit a sin or something not pleasing to Him. He who knows that Allah sees him will perfect his deeds and worship and perform them sincerely in order to reach Ihsān, and that is the highest level of worship, about which the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“To worship Allah as if you see Him. If you cannot see Him , He sees you.”

[Narrated by Al - Bukhāri and Muslim]

If you become alone sometimes,do not say I am alone! But say: Allah is watching over me! Do not ever think that there is something hidden from Allah or unknown to Him!

The believers are always aware that Allah is Ever-Watchful over them and sees everything they do, great or small. He says:

{There is nothing absent from your Lord [even] an atom’s weight on the earth or in the heaven or [anything] smaller than that or greater but it is in a clear record.}

[Surat Yūnus: 61]

As the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was sending Mu‘ādh to Yemen, he said,

“O Messenger of Allah, give me a dvice.” He said:“Fear Allah as m uch as you can, and remember Allah at every stone and tree.”

[Narrated by Ahmad] [Sahīh (Authentic)]

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:“When a person engages in Dhikr a lot on the way, at home, on journeys, and in different locations, this increases the witnesses in his favor on the Day of Judgment.”

{That Day, it will report its news.}

[Surat az- Zalzalah: 4]

{And Allah is sufficient as Witness.}

[Surat an - Nisā’: 79]

{There is nothing absent from your Lord [even] a n atom’s weight on the earth or in the heaven or [anything] smaller than that or greater but it is in a clear record.}

[Surat Yūnus: 61]

As the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was sending Mu‘ādh to Yemen, he said, 

“O Messenger of Allah, give me advice.” He said: “Fear Allah as much as you can, and remember Allah at every stone and tree.”

[Narrated by Ahmad] [Sahīh (Authentic)]

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy upon him) said: “When a person engages in Dhikr a lot on the way, at home, on journeys, and in different locations, this increases the witnesses in his favor on the Day of Judgment.”

{That Day, it will report its news.}

[Surat az - Zalzalah: 4]

{And Allah is sufficient as Witness.}

[Surat an - Nisā’: 79]

It was said: He who heeds Allah with regard to his thoughts and feelings, He will preserve him with regard to the actions of his body organs.

If we consider the seven types of people whom Allah will cover under His shade on the Day of Judgment, we will find out that the common feature among them is that they all believe that Allah is Witness over them and so they worship Him as if they could see Him, thereby attaining this great status.

O Allah, the Witness, we implore You to forgive us, show mercy to us, and pardon us, O the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!
