Why do we forget that Allah is our Master, our Higher authority, our Creator? Because as man, we are weak and we forget or get consumed with our daily activities and trials.
Our inabilities are as fragile and powerless, as though we are ants trying to carry a mountain on its shoulders.
But again we fall into the trap that we are self-relying and tougher than the shield of a knight.
As Muslims, we need to remember Allah.
Whatever emotions and events play out in our lives, we need to remember how small we are in front of Allah.
The parts we play in this life are given to us from the Creator and no matter how lost and astray we go from the path, all of us must return to Him on the Last Day.
There we will fully comprehend how insignificant we are in comparison to Allah and His attributes and there we will be judged as to how much we acknowledged this inevitable truth.
