who is your god? Empty who is your god?

Most people are outraged upon hearing this question. "What do you
mean, `Who is your god?' they ask, `My god is the Creator of the
heavens and the earth.' " And most of these people will be shocked to
find out that their proclamation that their god is the Creator of the
heavens and the earth is no more than lip service, and that they are
in fact destined for Hell (12:106).

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Your god is whoever or whatever occupies your mind most of the time.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Your god can be your children (7:190), your spouse (9:24), your
business (18:35), or your ego (25:43). This is why we note that one of
the most important and most repeated commandments in the Quran is:

------------------------------------------------------------------
"O you who believe, you shall remember God frequently; glorify Him
day and night." [33:41]
------------------------------------------------------------------

To put this commandment into practice, we must establish certain
habits whereby we guarantee that God occupies our minds more than
anything else. The Quran helps us establish such soul saving habits:

1. The Contact Prayers (Salat): those who observe the 5 daily prayers
come a long way towards commemorating God a significant proportion of
their waking hours. Salat helps us remember God not only during the
few minutes of prayer, but also throughout the times of anticipation.
At 11:00 AM, one may look at his or her watch to see if the noon
prayer is due yet. This act causes one to think about God, and one is
credited accordingly (20:14).

2. Commemorate God before eating: Verse 6:121 enjoins us to mention
God's name before we eat: "You shall not eat from that upon which
God's name has not been mentioned."

3. God Willing (IN SHAA ALLAH): "You shall not say, `I will do this
or that tomorrow,' without saying, `God willing' (IN SHAA ALLAH). If
you forget to do this, then apologize and say, `May my Lord guide me
to do better next time.'" [18:24]. This is a direct commandment that
we must carry out, no matter who we are talking with.

4. God's Gift (MAA SHAA ALLAH): To invoke God's protection for our
beloved objects - our children, our cars, our homes, etc. - we are
enjoined in 18:39 to say "MAA SHAA ALLAH" (This is God's gift).

5. Glorify God day and night: When we eat anything, we shouldn't be
like animals; we must reflect on God's creation of the food we are
eating - the flavor, our enjoyment due to the senses God has given us,
the perfect packaging of the banana or the orange, the varieties of
sea foods created by God, etc. - and glorify Him as we enjoy His
provisions. When we see a beautiful flower, or animal, or sunsets, we
must glorify God. We must seize every possible opportunity to remember
and glorify God, so that God may be our God.

6. First Utterance: Make it a habit to say: "In the name of God, Most
Gracious, Most Merciful. There is no other god besides God," the
moment you wake up every morning. If you establish this good habit,
this is what you will utter when you are resurrected.
