DISOBEYING OUR LORD
How can we transgress?
Allah ﷻ says
يُولِجُ اللَّيْلَ فِي النَّهَارِ وَيُولِجُ النَّهَارَ فِي اللَّيْلِ
He merges night into day, and merges day into night,
Meaning, He does what He wills with His creatures. He alternates the night and day and measures them by His wisdom, as He wills.
وَهُوَ عَلِیمُۢ بِذَاتِ ٱلصُّدُورِ
and He has full knowledge of whatsoever is in the breasts.
He knows the secrets, no matter how concealed they are.
The same Allah ﷻ, who controls the heavens and the earth, and sustains them and everything between them including us!
Yet we disobey him, hiding away and thinking we can get away with it!
Even when Allah ﷻ clarifies
إِنَّ اللهَ لَا يَخفَى عَليهِ شَيءٌ فِي الأَرضِ وَ لَا فِي السَّمَاءِ
Allah, indeed nothing is hidden from in the earth and in the heaven.
We have deluded ourselves concerning Allah ﷻ!
One of the Salaf said “If we truly knew Allah, we would never disobey Him ﷻ”
We have become heedless and unaware of who Allah ﷻ is,
And thus we share the characteristic he describes the disbelievers with,
وَ مَا قَدَرُوا اللهَ حَقَّ قَدرِه
And they have not appraised Allah with due appraisal.
Thus Allah ﷻ poses the question
مَّا لَكُمْ لاَ تَرْجُونَ لِلَّهِ وَقَاراً
What is the matter with you that you are not in awe of the Waqar [Majesty of Allah]
Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنه said “That you all do not magnify Allah in the proper manner that He deserves to be magnified. Meaning, you do not fear His punishment and His vengeance.”
Isn’t it time, we started recognising Allah ﷻ and worshipping Allah ﷻ and obeying Allah ﷻ?! For He ﷻ is everlasting and we are perishing by the day!
Ya Ibn Adam! Don’t wait till your old in age and when you are unable yet wanting! Make use of the energy now, before it leaves you!
Ya Ibn Adam! Allah asks the question to you,
“So where are you going?”
Where are we headed?
Jannah or Jahannam?
