SHAFAQNA – Late Shia scholar and author of Al-Mizan, Allamah Tabatabaei (RA) said: To be in control means human being paying attention to God inwardly (in one’s heart) and do not abandon this at all the times (keep doing it permanently). To be in control means that when the human being wakes up in the morning until he/she sleeps again, does not neglect remembering God; and all his/her deeds are for the purpose of seeking the satisfaction of Allah (SWT); to consider God to be present everywhere, and God is observing all his/her actions, and the human being sees himself/herself to be in the presence of God. It is narrated that: Pray to God as if you see the Almighty Allah (SWT), and if you do not see God, Allah (SWT) sees you .
