Akhlaq & Spirituality, Striding in Allah’s Shade - Enriching Lives / Thursday, November 6th, 2008

“O you who believe! Remember Allah abundantly. And glorify Him morning and evening.” [Al-Ahzaab 33: 41, 42]

Allah, the most Exalted, is addressing the believers asserting: remember Allah morn and eve and every possible time in between. This, essentially, is a prescription for gilding the entire life of a believer; entailing one lone thing for scores of others. Thus the line of attack, to wipe out all weaknesses and stumbling blocks from a believer’s life is subsequently being specified by Allah in these few words: remember Allah abundantly.

 

Logically employing, it is evident enough that the root of all evils springing in our human domains is nothing save ignorance towards Allah. Watch: Why is a believer not fair in his transactions? That is so because he is ignorant of Allah. Why is he snatching the rights of others? That too is so because he is ignorant of Allah. Why is he ogling at the daughters and sisters of others? Again because he is mindless of Allah. Why is he using his tongue worse than the sharpest blades? Because he is mindless of Allah. Why are these sisters and daughters tarnishing there chastity? Thus it is being affirmed: remember Allah in abundance – loud and proud – that every bone of your body be seen entrenched in His obedience.
