I heard a lecture which says,
Salah connects u with Allah. if Quran in salah can not connect u nothing can connect u to Allah.

now if a person doesnt say prayer at all or never take care of his deeds but he says, i have fear of Him and I have Allah in mind every time i sin or do good deed. is this REMEMBRANCE of Allah still called connection or its not? does zikr also connects u to Allah?

Connection means two things :

•We are connected to Allah wether we acknowledge it or not,believe in it or not,like it or dislike it. Allah is our creator and we are the creation,HE swt gave us life and is sustaining it,HE swt gives us Rizq and we use it. With this tabeer in mind we are always connected to Allah...and there is no way we can avoid it.

• The second tabeer is that we are connected to Allah with Iman and Uboodiyyat. This makes a special connection making us worthy of his blessings and innumerable rewards in dunya and akhera. It is like the relationship of a kind and generous master and his faithful slave. For such a connection we need to show our submission and obedience.

Think of a slave who praise his master all the time but when asked for a service he makes excuses or do something of his choice rather rather than what he has been ordered to do. Such a servent ent can hardly claim to be faithful.Think of it if the said servent loves the enemies of his master,like to live in a style not liked by his master...Can he still be called faithful and deserve special favours,hardly so...

Then if the servent is weak and can't fullfil all the orders but he feels sorry for his mistakes and openly express his sorrow for not being able to be upto the mark,the master may forgive him...but if he is otherwise perfectly fine,he uses all the previlages granted by the master,lives in the house the master has given him,eats the food granted by his master,wears the clothes given by master BUT still refuses to serve or follow the rules,how can he claim to have a 'special' connection to his master ?

I hope this explain it...
