Remembrance of ALLAH (swt) Ties Things Together

Allah connects us to our obligations

Imam W. D. Mohammed
Commentary on Selected Verses of  Al-Qur’an

The Holy Qur’an says the remembrance of Allah is the best. It means that whatever you may think of doing that will help you, there is nothing that can help you more than the remembrance of Allah; not that that is enough within itself, to just remember Allah and forget about it. We know that prayer, if it is not really lived; that is, if the face that you show, if it doesn’t come out in your actions, we know it was nothing. Someone who just prays all the time and does nothing, his prayer has no meaning.

But, if you pray and you are sincere in your prayers and if you are really giving recognition to Almighty G_d, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, prayer is going to make you conscious of the things that you are neglecting to do in your own life. You may be neglecting your own wife. You may be neglecting your children. You may be neglecting the home. You might be neglecting yourself. So, whatever it is that you are neglecting, if we remember to turn to Allah in prayer and if we do this conscious of what we are doing, it is going to improve us in every way, because Allah is the only thing that will connect us with all of our obligations. If I put  my heart on making a beautiful home for myself, that beautiful home is not going to connect me with all of my obligations. If I put my heart on being a successful businessman, that is not going to connect me with all of my obligations. If I put my heart on being a good father to my children, even that won’t connect me with all of my obligations. I might put my heart on being good to myself. That won’t connect me with all of my obligations. But, there is something, and that is Allah, that if we put our heart and mind consciously on Him, through Him, He will connect us with all of our obligations; because the Creator ties everything together in the proper way.
