al baseer

The good you do today might not get you somewhere today. You might not get thanked, appreciated or acknowledged. Don’t let this discourage you from being good to those around you. You know why? because Allah sees all that you do (Al Basir- The All Seeing) and “Your Lord never forgets” (Quran 1:64). There’ll come a day where all that you do, even the good which you forget you’ve done, will be presented before you & you’ll get repaid for ALL of it. Insha'Allah :)

[Al-Baseer/ The One who sees/ The All-Seeing]
Allah sees all, including His servants and their actions, and all that exists in the universe. “No vision can comprehend Him, and He comprehends all visions.” ‎﴾‬‎6.103﴿‬
It is He Who has blessed us with the faculty of seeing. In view of His all-inclusive sight, we should be careful about our actions. For those cannot escape Him. “Did he not know that Allah sees?” ‎﴾‬‎96.14﴿‬
“Surely Allah sees His servants.” ‎﴾40.44‬‎﴿‬
The feeling of someone important looking at you makes you act in a noble way. To a believer, the most important One to see his doings is Allah and then those loved by Allah
“Do (what you do); Allah will see your deed, as will the the Messenger, and the believers.” ‎﴾‬‎9.105﴿‬
If a believer develops this sense of being constantly present in front of Allah, he will reach the rank of Ihsan (goodness, sincerity). Gabriel said to the Prophet ‎ﷺ‎‬, “Tell me about Ihsan.” The Prophet said, “It is to worship Allah as though you are seeing Him, and while you do not see Him, truly He sees you.” (Narrated by Muslim)

Allah ﷻ says:

وَمِنَ اللَّيلِ فَاسْجُدْ لَهُ وَسَبِّحْهُ لَيْلاً طَوِيلاً
And during the night, prostrate yourself to Him, and glorify Him a long night through.

Narrated in Al Bukhari
Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه narrated the Prophet ﷺ said “Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: “Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?”

Wallahi!
If you are seeking provision in the Dunya, as long as it is not contradicting your Deen…
Make Sujood to Allah in Tahajjud!
Make Sujood with sincerity in the dark hours of the night, where nobody except Al Baseer and As Samee’ and Al ‘Aleem can see you!

STOP.

Just stop, even for a minute stop.

Stop looking at others’ faults, stop minding others’ actions, stop talking ill about others. For Allaah’s Azza Wa Jall sake, stop.

Aren’t you tired? Are you not tired of making the angel tired of recording every word you are uttering against your fellow Muslim? Are you not full, are you not full of eating the flesh of your brother?

Since when do did you ever took backbiting as a hobby? How can a heart of Muslim, who prays, and remembers Allaah Azza Wa Jall utter a word that doesn’t only displeases the one they talk about but also Allaah Azza Wa Jall?

How is it that now, putting shame on others is “okay” and advising others in private is “not okay”? What has this Ummah have become?

We are humans, yes, we make mistakes, but we are Muslims more than humans, we SHOULD follow up a bad deed with a good deed, or rather, we should always repent for something we know we did wrong. Is your Lord not Al Baseer, Who sees everything? Is He not As Samee, Who hears everything?

And everytime you say “DO NOT JUDGE ME ONLY ALLAH CAN JUDGE ME!”

yes, indeed Allaah will judge you but are you not scared, don’t you know how heavy these words are, yes you are telling us that you are not to be judge because Allaah will be the one…
He will justify every action you did, good or bad, remember your deeds, with the number of deeds, bad and good you’ve done, where do you think you will reside? Is your good deeds more than the bad or the bad is more than the good?

My brother and sister in Islam, before we would judge someone, we should first understand why and how this person was able to do such action.

One of the commonest thing that we usually encounter is a person wearing a hijab, yes, you compliment her and all, yet the next day you see her without it, is that enough reason for you to tell the world about her? Has the thought of “understanding her” come before the thought of “judging her” to you?

Everyone has their own struggles, even you have your own. We struggle because we are Muslims, and Allaah Azza Wa Jall, makes every day of our life as a battle to attain our ultimate goal, Jannah, Jannah, Jannah and i mean Jannah with Him.

Before we could utter a word of distress to our fellow Muslims, remember that you yourself have your own faults, sins and flaws, you are not an exception. Hence, how can you be too arrogant to not realize that?

I know its hard, but each time you would want to say a word, think, think about how it will affect others, Muslims are not selfish people, we give not thinking of receiving anything in return, we advise not that we get recognition but because our hearts tell us to comfort one another.

Remember, you write the words that are written and is being written on your scroll of deeds, and not a single word would be erased there unless Allaah Azza Wa Jall permits it, with His Abundant Mercy.

Know my brother and sister in Islam, that no one can deny a single written letter on that scroll, remember how Allaah Azza Wa Jall says on the Qur'aan:

“Do not dispute before Me, while I had already presented to you the warning. The word will not be changed with Me, and never will I be unjust to the servants.” [50:28-29]

Have we not gone through the Words of Allaah Azza Wa Jall in the Qur'aan? Have we not read about the characteristics of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi wassalaam on various ahadith?

Even our own limbs will be made to speak on that Day, and no one can deny, no one.

So resist the temptations of Shaitan, resist and cover your tongues with the remembrance of Allaah Azza Wa Jall, protect your limbs with the cleanliness of wudhu, be always at a state of waiting for the next salaah, keep your mind conscious of Allaah Azza Wa Jall and you will be conscious of your deeds and actions. in sha Allaah.

Let me inspire you from the Words of the Qur'aan:

“And Paradise will be brought near to the righteous, not far, [it will be said], "this is what you were promised-for every returner[to Allaah] and keeper [of His covenant] Who feared the Most Merciful unseen and came with a heart returning[in repentance]. Enter it in peace. This Day of Eternity.” [50:31-34]

Subhan'Allaah, so fear Allaah, fear Allaah and become one of those who returns to Him with a heart full of repentance.

So please, speak good or remain silent.

And we seek refuge in Allaah Azza Wa Jall from the evil of our souls and our bad deeds. May He with His Abundant Mercy forgive us and enlighten us to see what is only good in others and speak of what is appropriate and haqq. Amin

Zohayma

Fear Allah at all times, especially when you’re alone. We can hide from people, but we can’t hide anything from the Al-Baseer, the All-Seeing.
