Habib Umar on muraqaba


Bismillah.

We cannot avoid but quote the venerable habib again, subhanallah his succinct definition of muraqaba seems like a phrase one should consider memorizing and have it engraved in one's heart so that its meaning reverberates with each heart beat and breath. Because it is very easy to be absent from such consciousness as one tends to lose one's awareness of Him in a split second. Astaghfirullah! We are putting it here for our own good and for the benefit of our loved ones. May we remain close-knit in our common concern - Allah s.w.t.

"Being mindful of Allah (muraqaba) is feeling His observation of you, His encompassing you, His seeing your innermost soul, His knowledge of what flows in the depth your being, and that you are before Him—every part of you exposed to Him, Glorious and exalted is He. Mindfulness causes constant presence [with Allah] as well as the realization of humility (khushu') in worship."
- Habib Umar bin Hafiz
