Say, ‘My Prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds – [Quran 6:163]
Such one who is submissive having in mind that there is none worthy to be worshipped except Allah and that there is no power or might anywhere except with Him and that Al-Quran which was revealed to the Noblest of man on earth, Muhammad Mustapha (saw) serves as guide for the Muslims Ummah, will sincerely be able to dedicate his life, death, prayers and sacrifices to the will Allah.
This would be the outcome of perfect faith and perfect sincerity. This leads one to think, care and be cautious, in all states of life and in everything one does, that: ‘Allah is One and will never be two’. That He should let not his heart, mind, eyes, ears, tongue, and hands, and feet, nor pen or step, move in any direction against His pleasure.’
This is the best which one can direct his thoughts, something which, if one trains himself to keep in heart and mind, then there is no doubt that he or she will become subjected to indecencies and evil manifestation. Acts that will be tantamount to sinning, disobedience and crimes will be scared to come anywhere near such person and shall be living in the ocean of God’s mercy. In shaa Allah – aamin.
