In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
But honour, power and glory belong to Allaah, His Messenger [Muhammad)], and to the believers.
[Surah Al-Munaafiqoon’ Aayah 8]
Honour, power and glory belongs to Allaah, and then to the people of Tawheed [i.e. the honour and aid Allaah bestows on them], because they neither humble themselves nor bow except to Allaah [alone]. They do not fear [anyone]; neither do they place their hope [in anything] nor do they have a fervent desire except for the reward of The Most Great, The Compeller, in whose Hand is the dominion, the Owner of everthing and the One who has grasped everything by its forelock [i.e. everything is under His absolute control, dominion and authority] – Glorified and Exalted be He [i.e. Allaah].
Therefore, it is obligated on a Muslim to have great fear when he mentions Allaah and when he fulfils any act of worship, so that he finds himself in that station of Ihsaan described by the Messenger [alayhis salaatu wassalaam], which is ‘to worship Allaah as if you see Him, and even though you cannot see Him, you know that He sees you.”
