And which One Does Not?)

Those who say they are “Working for Allah!” must internalize the following divine monitoring system on earth:

Islam means working for Allah. That is what Islam means and the Qur’an seems to suggest that very strongly and very clearly.

As a result, those individuals and groups -- those who claim they are Working for Allah -- are not doing anyone any favors. They are just doing what they were put on this earth to do: To Work for Allah!

Illaa Li-Ya’abudoon (51:56)

But there is a small “catch” that seems to go with it. And the Qur’an is quite direct about it.

Quli’amaloo, says the Qur’an in Surah Tawubah, Aayat 105.

Meaning:

Go ahead and do the things you have to do. In other words, plain and simple: “Work!”

But then the Qur’an adds: Go ahead and work, “For, God shall see your work.”

Fa-Sa-yarallahu Amalakum! (9:105)

After that, the Qur’an says:

And so shall Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

Meaning:

Work, so along with Allah, Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, can also see your work.

The story does not end there, but goes on to induct the Muslims -- The Believers: Al-Mu’minoon -- as part of this divine monitoring system of human behavior on earth.

As an integral part of this unfailing divine arrangement to monitor and supervise human action in this world.

Wal-Mu’minoon, says the Qur’an, “and the Believers.

The Believers also shall and must be able to see and check your work.

Have you ever heard of something the world calls “Transparency“? This is the mother and grand-daddy of all transparencies.

Here is that full passage from Surah Tawubah:

Wa Quli’amaloo Fa-Sa-Yarallahu Amalakum wa Rasuluhu wal-Muminoon (9:105).

Paraphrase, once again:

“And say:Work!
For, Allah shall soon see and inspect your work.
And so shall Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
As shall also the Believers!”

First thing: Work, for, you must, as you were created exclusively for that purpose: to work for Allah.

Next thing: When you work, you will be on the radar -- on candid camera if you will -- of all of them:

First, Allah;
Then, Rasulullah, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam;
And, after that, the Muslims.

So, people do you get it?
