Allah Sees and Knows Everything

People cannot see Allah-unless He wills-, being the main reason why some often falsely presume that Allah cannot see them (truly, Allah is far above that which they ascribe to Him). Allah sees and knows all things, down to the minutest detail, as indicated in a verse of the Qur'an as follows:

Eyesight cannot perceive Him but He perceives eyesight. He is the All-Penetrating, the All-Aware. (Surat al-An'am: 103)

Wherever a person may be, Allah is surely with him. Right at this moment, as you are reading these lines, Allah sees you and knows exactly what crosses your mind. Wherever you go, or whatever you do, this is always the case. As it is explained in the Qur'an:

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. (Surah Yunus: 61)

It is He Who created the heavens and the Earth in six days, then established Himself firmly on the Throne. He knows what goes into the Earth and what comes out of it, what comes down from heaven and what goes up into it. He is with you wherever you are-Allah sees what you do. (Surat al-Hadid: 4)

The Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) also reminded believers to keep this in mind when he said, "Allah is above the Throne and nothing is hidden from Allah of your deeds."

Aware of this fact, a believer submits himself to his Lord, seeks refuge in Him, and fears nothing but Him. Allah's command to Prophet Moses (pbuh), and Prophet Aaron (pbuh) is a lesson for all believers. Allah states in the Qur'an:

He said, "Have no fear. I will be with you, All-Hearing and All-Seeing." (Surah Ta Ha: 46)
