The Great Admonition

The eminent Scholar  Muhammed Al-Ameen ibn Muhammed Al-Mukhtar Ash-Shinqeete ( d.1393) May Allah have Mercy on Him said:

“The Scholars have agreed unanimously that Allah has not sent down from the sky to the earth a bigger preacher, or greater admonisher than the awareness that one is being observed. That is, that man should be aware that his Lord is looking over him, and that He is aware of all that he hides and reveals”

Allah has clearly expressed the wisdom behind His creating creation, that being to test them
“Which of them is the best in deeds” (Al Kahf :7)
He also states in the begining of Surah Hud:
 “And it is He who created the heavens and the earth in six days, and His throne is above the water to test you which of you is best in deeds” (Surah hud verse 7)
and He did not say , “Which of you is most in deeds. ”  He states in Surah Al-Mulk
” He who created death and life to test you which of you is best in deeds, and He is The Mighty , The Forgiving” ( Surah Al Mulk verse 2)
So, these two ayahs (Verses) cleary express the intent of His statement:
“And I have not created the jinn nor manking except to Worship Me” ( Surah Adh-Dhariyath ayah 56)
as the wisdom beind the creating of creation is this test that was mentioned. (Angel) Jibril (Gabriel) wanted to convey to manking the path to success in this test, so, he said to the Prophet (sallahu alyhi wa sallam), ” Tell me what is Ihsaan“?. Namely, that being the thing which creation was created -to be tested in. So, he (prophet ) explained that the path of Ihsan is that great admonisher and tremendous preacher mentioned previously. He answered , ” It (ihsaan) is to worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you don’t see Him then (know that), indeed He sees you” (Agreed upon hadith by Bukhari /Muslim)”.
So,there isn’t a page of the Qur’an that you turn, except that you find there in this great admonisher:
“And we did indeed create mankind and We know what he whispers to himself, and We are nearer to him than his Jugular vein”… “He does not pronouce a word except that with his is a prepared guarded” (Surah Qaf 16-18)
