In our professional life we all have come across it, most often, once a year. . .
Audit: The scrutiny of the corporation and those working for it . . .
Whether in the private sector or the public sector. . institutions are audited during certain periods by certain people. . . the auditors. .
The government’s ministries are audited by ministry auditors. . .
The objective of this process, which periodically takes place from the highest level in the government to the lowest, is to provide that the personnel work more efficiently and with higher performance. And, by auditing the financial and social structure of the corporation, to increase productivity.. . to safeguard from corruption. . .
I worked in the private sector for twenty five years and experienced many an audit. . .the auditors implement their audit in compliance with the guidelines of the corporation and to the smallest detail. . .
This process is taken more seriously in the private sector and, unfortunately,does not receive the same importance and priority. . .
It is for this reason that certain public corrupt institutions are overlooked insomuch as they are vindicated. . .and the reason for this is very simple. . . In the public sector certain organizations are hierarchically affiliated to one another. . and it is not in the other loops’ interest if the preceding or succeeding loop is negatively affected. . .because they are all corrupt and in order to provide continuity (in corruption) they have to overlook one anther’s shortcomings. . to the extent that they will even publicly vindicate one another. . .
Because they have mutual interests and the threats are mutual too. .
Actually, we are all audited in our daily life.
Two angels on our shoulders record our rights and wrongs. . .
It was We who created man, and we know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: For We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein. Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his doings) learn (and note them), one sitting on he right and one on the left. Not a word does he utter but there is a sentinel by him, ready (to note it). VERSES 16-17-18 QAF SURA 50
And they never overlook your mistakes. . because they work under the command of a supreme authority. . . they take no bribes. . they meticulously record your rights and wrongs. . .
There is time limitation in professional audits. . . Mistakes committed are disregarded after a certain period. . the corrupted are reinstated. . . the black are laundered . .
Whereas this is such an audit in which the good and the bad, the sins and the good deeds are never forgotten. . never concealed. . because;
And God doth know what ye conceal, and what ye reveal. VERSE 19, THE BEE (NAHL) SURA 16
In his records, there is no unregistered economy as there is in public records. . .
Because in the presence of the Lord everything is registered. . .
Verily, We shall give life to the dead, and We record that which they leave behind, and of all things have We taken account in a clear Book (of evidence).
VERSE, YASIN (ABBREVIATED LETTERS), SURA 36
Actually, we are all under continual audit by two auditors every second. . .
And, corporate auditors are being audited, too. . .
There are sworn in consultants. . . whose credentials are determined and declared by the state. . I don’t know what they swear on, nor whether they abide by their oaths. . .
But every person, is being audited every moment by the angels assigned. . .
And at the day of judgment they have a report about us all to be submitted to their Lord. . .
I put my trust in God, My Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but he Hath grasp of its fore-lock. Verily, it is my Lord that is on a straight Path. VERSE 56, HOUD (HUD), SURA 11**
