Younus AlGohar analyses the situation of Muslims today in light of a verse in Surah Baqarah of the Quran.
– In this particular verse, God says that some people claim they are Momin (true believers) because they believe in God and the Day of Judgement, but they do not know that they are deceiving themselves.
– Islam requires Muslims to declare their faith by the tongue and affirm it by the heart (Qalb). Here, God is saying that what Muslims consider to be Islam is not what Islam is to him. On the Day of Judgement, God will not ask people how many times they fasted or worshipped him.
– When you go to work, you expect to get paid; the money you receive is proof that you work. Similarly, God put inside you your heart which is meant to accumulate the divine energy (Noor) of the worship and fasts you carry out. On the Day of Judgement, God will simply look at the amount of divine energy in your heart and other subtleties of the breast in order to determine how much you worshipped him. Those who worshipped him without obtaining the divine energy for their hearts, God will reject their worship on the Day of Judgement.
– When you fast or go to the mosque, you should know the benefits you will reap out of these practises. It is spiritual knowledge that gives you the power of comprehension so that you can understand why the religion requires you to do certain things.
