Nothing is hidden from God
Chapter “LUQMAAN”- (LUQMAN) – 31
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
يَٰبُنَىَّ إِنَّهَآ إِن تَكُ مِثْقَالَ حَبَّةٍ مِّنْ خَرْدَلٍ فَتَكُن فِى صَخْرَةٍ أَوْ فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ أَوْ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ يَأْتِ بِهَا ٱللَّهُ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَطِيفٌ خَبِيرٌ 16
|16. O my dear son! Lo! though it be but the weight of a grain of mustard-seed, and though it be in a rock, or in the heavens, or in the earth, Allah will bring it forth. Lo! Allah is Subtile, Aware.||16. Yaa-bunayya ‘innahaaa ‘in taku misqaala habbatim-min khardalin fatakun fii sakhratin ‘aw fis-samaawaati ‘aw fil-‘arzi ya’-ti biHallaah. ‘InnAllaaha Latiifun Khabiir.|
The children ask from elders such matters which they themselves do not understand, particularly from their father. The son of Luqman would have asked: How Allaah Almighty will know if we do any work secretly? Luqman has been causing to understand him: My dear son! Do not speculate the matters of Allaah Almighty as the matters of any mankind. The human being does not know that what is behind the veil, even he is not aware of what is being done behind him. He knows only that what is before his eyes openly. But nothing is hidden from Allaah Almighty. He is Present and Beholder everywhere. He knows even most little thing, whether that is an atom, fixed in hard stones or at highest place in the heavens or in the darkness and hidden in the depth. Allaah Almighty is Well Aware of everything’s condition and location. As and when there will be need of anything, He will produce and present from its existing place. He is Able to see and Knower of most thin things. Therefore the mankind should not remain in this deception that as the human beings are not aware of the works being done behind the veil, like this Allaah Almighty will not come to know the sin committed in concealment. Considering so is ignorance.
There is no such place in the heavens or in the earth which is hidden from Him. On the Day of Resurrection, entire hidden deeds of every individual will be produced before everyone. So every mankind should think before doing any work.
