GOD KNOWS EVERY CONCEALED SECRET

Everything in the heavens and everything on Earth, and everything in between them and everything under the ground, belongs to Him. Though you speak out loud, He knows your secrets and what is even more concealed. (Qur'an, 20:6-7)

You do not engage in any matter or recite any of the Qur'an or do any action without Our witnessing you while you are occupied with it. Not even the smallest speck eludes your Lord, either on Earth or in Heaven. Nor is there anything smaller than that, or larger, which is not in a Clear Book. (Qur'an, 10:61)

You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, You know it completely, O Lord. (Psalm 139:2-4)


THOSE WHO ABANDON GOD FOR IDOLS

TO HEAR AND PRACTICE

The reply of the believers when they are summoned to God and His Messenger, so that he can judge between them, is to say: "We hear and we obey." They are ones who are successful. (Qur'an, 24:51)
