Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala is All-Knowing of everything, but the question is “are you aware that He Knows ?” Those seeking self purification must develop a consciousness of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and continuous Muraqabah of Him (observing that He is observing You) that He is very Close to you, and that He is more Loving of you than even you. This is a gradual step, a little by little “daily of pure observance of your creator” process, leading you eventually to a point where even your thoughts are purified and you are in observance of Him Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala even when you are with your family and going about your daily business. You know His Closeness, you feel His Closeness, and you taste the sweetness of His Closeness. Sincerity and selflessness is the KEY to all this. How will your heart be when you truly feel that He is observing you, close to you…with you!? (Shaykh Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Husayni al-Ninowy – Allah Ta’ala preserve him)
