If we equate a moment with a photograph, then our lives are like a series of freeze frames. Some of the best people, as told by God in the Qur’an are described as those that stay Conscious of God ( Muttaqun) during the moments that make up our lives.
So, for instance, someone who is God-conscious doesn’t just keep their camera in a bag slung around their shoulder. The one who is God-conscious actually has it out while engaging their surroundings. They experiment by viewing the reality before them through various lenses, filters, and camera-modes. They are zooming in, zooming out, and deciding what combination of lenses, filters, and modes best capture that moment. At last, they take an action. They snap the photograph. They apply the Qur’an in their lives and begin a dialogue with God.
