25. AS-SAMEE’ – THE ALL-HEARER
It is often that we are surrounded by those who want to talk, but how many actually want, desire and love to listen? Well, your Rabb and my Rabb waits to listen to YOU! Not only does He listen, His listening includes perfect comprehension and understanding of everything.
He listens to the whispers of the heart, the cry of the soul, the lament of the grieving, the anguish of the sick, and the muffled sounds of those persecuted and oppressed. He listens to every wayfarer, every layman, every one who calls upon Him, in happiness or distress. Then how do you feel lonely when As-Samee’ listens and understands you exclusively?
Not a word does he (or she) utter, but there is a watcher by him ready (to record it). [50:18]
Moreover, He also knows well the secret counsels, the plotting, the unlawful talks, the guilty whisperings. When nothing is hidden from As-Samee’, how do we pretend to run away from Him, blind in our arrogance and ignorance?
It is the same to Him whether one of you conceals his speech or declares it openly; whether he lies hidden by night or walks forth freely by day. [13: 10]
As we edge closer to #Ramadan, know and love as-Samee’, and raise your dua’ to Him, for He surely answers your call!
