allah sees all

Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. (Quran 2:255)

[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)

Is2g all you Muslims who are like “DONT SAY MERRY CHRISTMAS DONT BE PART OF THE KUFFAR” don’t have any??? bit??? of respect??? for other religions???? Like Allah literally told us to respect Christianity and Judaism because their holy books have the word of God in them and like in general why do you guys like to slander Christmas and Christians and Jewish people’s Hanukkah as “made up holidays that should never be celebrated” like do you guys not realize how disgusting you sound? Do you guys literally not see the type of message you give to people of other faiths? If another faith talked about Eid or Ramadan the way we talk about Christmas we would be all up in their face telling them to respect other religions so???? Like Christmas comes around suddenly we forget how to respect different people? Not just Christianity and Judaism but ALL faiths. Actually it tells a lot about a person, it shows you never had respect for the religion/culture in the first place. Pretty sure Allah has more mercy and kindness and understanding than any of us put together, for the whole of humanity.

What is more satisfying then knowing that Allah sees you in all your brokenness and imperfection and says, “I am near: I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he prays to Me" ?

Please turn to Allah!

I hadn’t acknowledged Pulse at all today. Almost as if on some deeply subconsciously level, I did everything to avoid it. I worked out. I came home. I shopped. I read. I prayed. More diligently than spiritually but that happens and it’s okay. My intentions are pure. I did necessary work today. And then I couldn’t fall asleep. And I browsed tumblr in hopes of dozing off. It was meant to be. Maybe on another deeply subconscious level I wanted to acknowledge. Needed to acknowledge. Or maybe Allah wanted me to see all those posts about Pulse. I’m so grateful that everyone posted so much. I didn’t think of it as trigger but more as necessary enlightenment.
So I went outside, rolled up a tiny bit. Saw the moon again; saw the moon all this week. And I reflected. About why we work so hard. About why we want to achieve what we want to achieve in our lives. About where we feel safe. Imagine being robbed of that. I haven’t cried about it. Until tonight. If we can tell if one of us is like us; then that’s indication that we’re all sort of connected. I felt the reverberations from the loss of 49 connections, I felt the entire system of these connections shake, felt that all within my tiny heart.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un.

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 :)

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الطَّيْرِ فَوْقَهُمْ صَافَّاتٍ وَيَقْبِضْنَ ۚ مَا يُمْسِكُهُنَّ إِلَّا الرَّحْمَٰنُ ۚ إِنَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ بَصِيرٌ

Do they not see the birds above them with wings outspread and [sometimes] folded in? None holds them [aloft] except the Most Merciful. Indeed He is, of all things, Seeing.

Surah 67. Al-Mulk, Ayah 19

Will seeing this little boy open the hearts of the inhumane, or did the other millions create dents in their souls. When realism meets our eyes, will then we understand what hardship our fellow Muslims are going through. Will we then feel the immense fortune we are bestowed each given day. But is it really a gift to live another day knowing in different time zones our people, our home, our religion is put on the ledge and the only ounce of strength they own is their faith. May those black hearts get all the punishment they so greatly deserve. The motive of their malice of all those innocent lives who just wanted to live a free life will never wrap around my head because to have a religion is to have a heart that is guided by their faith in their Creator and no religion can bring your hearts to do such brutal acts. So do not tell me they are Muslims or Christians or Jews because in reality, your god would never approve of such. They are the ones with no faith, no religion, no soul. I pray for them, how distorted their lives must be without an ounce of compassion and faith for the one who created them. May Allah (SWT) ease our Muslims pain and suffering. May Allah keep them strong despite what little dignity they snatched from their innocent hearts. “He knows what is in the heavens and on earth. And it is those who believe in vanities and reject Allah that will perish (in the end).” [29:52]

People who try to fool others do not realize that sooner or later the truth comes out. Be honest. Have integrity. After all Allah sees all and you will only fool yourself!

Holy Qur'an, Luqman 16: “My dear son! Whether good or evil, if a deed should have the weight of only a mustard-seed, and though it be kept hidden in a rock, in the heavens or in the earth, God brings it to light (for judgment). Surely God is All-Subtle (penetrating to the most minute dimensions of all things), All-Aware.

Many of us do not have yearning to come close to Allah because of worldly temptations. The veil of this world lies between us and Him, but on that tremendous Day this veil will be lifted when the world is destroyed. Then all will see Allah, and all will love Him and all will yearn to be near to Him. But not everyone will be given this chance. For if you choose to be distant from Him in this world, then you cannot be near to Him in the next. If you did not make the effort to journey to Him in this world, then how can you arrive at Him in the next? Despite the veils that He placed between you and Him you still have to make the effort to arrive at Him. You have to constantly be making the effort to remember Allah; you have to constantly be making the effort to do the deeds pleasing to Him, and this is how you come closer to Him.
