KNOW YOUR LORD
Worship Him as He Deserves it
Allah ﷻ says in Surah Az-Zumar
وَمَا قَدَرُواْ اللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ
They made not a just estimate of Allah such as is due to Him.
These are the disbelievers who did not believe that Allah ﷻ had power over them.
وَالاٌّرْضُ جَمِيعـاً قَبْضَـتُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَـمَةِ
And on the Day of Resurrection the whole of the earth will be grasped by His Hand.
وَالسَّمَـوَتُ مَطْوِيَّـتٌ بِيَمِينِهِ سُبْحَـنَهُ وَتَعَالَى عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
and the heavens will be rolled up in His Right Hand. Glorified be He, and High be He above all that they associate as partners with Him!
Such is the Power of Allah ﷻ!
The All Powerful! And according to some, The Compeller!
We aren’t Mushrikeen, we do not associate with Allah ﷻ
But how great is our sin, when we don’t know Allah ﷻ enough, that we cannot worship him as he should be worshipped,
How greater is our sin, that We do not have Taqwa of him as we should and so we forget He ﷻ watches us 24/7 as we sin?
How great is our sin, when we choose the creation of Allah ﷻ, their love and approval over the love and pleasure of Allah ﷻ?
How great is our sin when we act out in Piety and Courage for the sake of the creation of Allah ﷻ but not the creator of Allah ﷻ?
Part of a Hadith Qudsi narrated by Abu Dharr رضي الله عنه,
Muhammad ﷺ said, Allah ﷻ said “O My servants, all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance of Me and I shall guide you, O My servants, all of you are hungry except for those I have fed, so seek food of Me and I shall feed you. O My servants, all of you are naked except for those I have clothed, so seek clothing of Me and I shall clothe you.”
[Sahih Muslim 2577]
Try and count your blessings!
Start with every breath you’ve taken and every blink in your life!
You can’t count it!
So how then, do we live knowing that we harbour traces of the same characteristic as the Mushrikeen in this regard?
Seek to know your Rabb, so you may worship Him ﷻ,
Otherwise what point is your life on this Earth?
