All Hearts are dead except those with knowledge... All those with knowledge are asleep except those who perform good actions... All those who perform good actions are deceived except those with sincerity... And all those with sincerity are in a constant state of anxiety... [Imam Shafi'i]

In the spirit of Ramadhan...

Fear more the sin when you are out of sight, it is where your witness is also your judge. [Ali (RA)]

In the spirit of Ramadhan, let us all reflect on this quote of Ali (RA). Fasting is something completely between Allah (SWT) and us and Ramadhan should be used as a month to strengthen our bond with Allah (SWT). Noone sees whether you are fasting correctly, if you sneak away to eat, no human being will see you, if you slander, gossip or lie very few will hear you, but Allah (SWT) is always witnessing your every action. This awareness of Allah (SWT) always watching what we do is what we are supposed to build on in Ramadhan, ie. Taqwaa or God consciousness. As Ali (RA) said, we should fear it more when we sin away from people (we should fear sinning regardless), because at that time, our only witness will also be our judge, ie. Allah (SWT).
