These days with social media, FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, Texting, we all have become hyper-connected. But how do we establish hyper connection with God who created us and to whom we will all go back. God also loves that his best creation,each one of the mankind, gets hyper-connected with Him.
Five Digits to get connected with God, like always on Call with him:Establish worship at the going down of the sun until the dark of night, and (the recital of) the Qur’an at dawn. Lo! (the recital of) the Qur’an at dawn is ever witnessed [117.78]
Thus our creator has set times to break regularly from daily chores of life for a few minutes and worship him. First thing in the morning before we begin our day, angel witness recitation, as if we dial 2, in the middle of the day with the declining of the sun, at noon, as if we dial 4, in the late after noon at Asr we again dial 4, and in the evening at sun set, at Maghrib we again dial 3 and at night before we go to the sleep at Isha we dial 4. So we get hyper-connected with our creator 5 times a day, so our number for hyper connection with the creator is 24434.
Bathing 5 times in a River: The friend of God, Muhammed (SAS) thus stated, “What do you think, if there was a river by the door of any one of you and he bathed in it five times a day, would there be any traces of dirt let on him?. They ( companions R) replied, “ No trace of dirt would be left on him.” The Prophet (SAS) said,” This is like the 5 daily prayers, through which God erases in” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Creator is Near us to Answer our Call: He also stated when my worshiper calls me, I am very near to him and I answer when a person calls me and it is his duty to answer my call so that I can guide him to the right path
When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls on Me: Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me: That they may be in the right way. (2. 186)
Creator is present in our meeting: There is no secret conference of three but He is their fourth, nor of five but He is their sixth, nor of less than that or more but He is with them wheresoever they may be; and afterward, on the Day of Resurrection, He will inform them of what they did. Lo! Allah is Knower of all things [58.7]
Monitoring and Observing:. He himself by his knowledge, wisdom, listening, hearing and observing is near to each one of us then our jugular vein. Indeed! there are above you guardians, (10) Generous and recording, (82.11)
Protecting Friend: Our Creator is our protecting friend, He brings us as faithful servant to light- right path from darkness of misguided deceiving false friends as well as bad companions and devil and his wicked plan and plot.
God is the Protecting friends of those who believe. He brings them out of darkness into light. As for those who disbelieve, their patrons are false deities. They bring them out of light into darkness. Such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein. (2.257).
Problems and Challenges in Day to day Life: We state problems and challenges bring new opportunities. The al-mighty created the angels who does not need for or shelter or has no desires unlike mankind, who needs food, shelter, etc.
Guide Book in 23 years: So he has sent us life guide , the Reading [Al-Quran] through his beloved friend Muhammed [SAS] who was unlettered by guided by Himself during long 23 years to solve our day to day life problems.
Musa (AHS) looking for guidance from Fire: Musa [AHS] who directly spoke with HIM, when he was returning from Median with his pregnant wife on his way back to his homeland Egypt, after working 10 years to pay dowry to get his beloved wife. On his way he was about lost his path and he alone suddenly saw a fire far off and told his family, I may bring you s brand or may find guidance at the fire. And I have chosen thee, so listen to that which is inspired. (13) Indeed! I, even I, am Allah, There is no God save Me. So serve Me and establish worship for My remembrance. (20.14)
What God commanded Muhamed (sas) Establish Connection with God: Let us see an example via Rasul Allah Muhamed (SAS), what He commanded us, And enjoin upon your family worship, and be patient and constant therein. We ask not of thee a provision: We provided for thee. And the good end is for righteous persons. [20.132]
Humble Minded with Patience and Prayer: When we face a problem in our life, we need to connect with God and be Patient: We have the remember the event or the problem is only 10%, how we handle or react is the 90%. So our creator commands us to connect with him for guidance and be patient and then work in a cool headed mind to find a solution to resolve. There is one door closed but 10 different alternatives doors to enter. Let us see what the creator commanded us: Seek help in patience and prayer; and truly it is hard save for the humble-minded, [2.45]
Try Multiple times with Patience: In another place he again stated he is with us, if we seek a solution to problem with patience and establish connection with him: We have to try multiple times with patience, until we get a correct solution, O ye who believe! Seek help in steadfastness and prayer. Lo! Allah is with the steadfast. [2.153]
Successful in this life and life Hereafter: An important factor in salah as we connect with God is the state of calmness and tranquility along with humility to be achieved with deep concentration. Let us see what the Creator commanded: Successful indeed are the believers (1) Who are humble in their prayers (23.2)
Prayer allows to enrich the spirituality and cultivate the soul’s right to love and worship the Creator. Prayer awakens and stimulates the soul. One reminds himself that the Creator is in charge of everything and as human being he is the faithful servant and the Creators pleasure is his aim in life.
Prayer Stop Bad Deeds and Brings him Close to God: In prayer we control our eyes from looking around, we should also control our eyes outside of prayer. Praying 5 times a day engages a person in constant remembrance of God and keeps him away from any unjust deeds and leads him only to deeds that will earn him pleasure of God. And establish worship. Indeed worship preserves from lewdness and iniquity, but verily remembrance of God is more important. And God knows what you do [29.45]
Everything for God: In this situation, a person feels and states, his worship, his sacrifice, living and dying are all for God. Say: Indeed! my worship and my sacrifice and my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the Worlds. [6.162]
Finally he feels so close and connected to God, as the Prophet Muhammed (SAS) stated, My slave keeps on coming closer to Me through performing Nawafil (praying or doing extra deeds besides what is obligatory) till I love him, so I become his sense of hearing with which he hears, and his sense of sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he grips, and his leg with which he walks; and if he asks Me, I will give him, and if he asks my protection (Refuge), I will protect him. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol.8, p.336).
God is pleased: But ah! thou soul at peace (in complete rest and satisfaction)! (27) Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure! (28) Enter thou among My bondmen! (29) Enter thou My Garden! (89.30)
