Promise 20 of 25

Promise 20 of 25

No fear and no grief

Allah the Most high, says,

“Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

[Al Qur’an 2:277]

Abdus Salaam (a scholar of the past) (May Allah have mercy upon him) once went to visit a tyrant, with his students. So at first he started to speak softly, but then his voice started becoming louder and louder and his voice was becoming harsher and harsher, and he started pointing towards this tyrant. So his students started wrapping up their cloaks, because they were expecting that at anytime a sword will cut off his head, because of the way he was speaking to this tyrant. When he came out, his students went to him and said, what have you done, how could you speak to him like that. He said that when I imagined the greatness of Allah, then this tyrant became in front of me smaller than a cat.

This happened when he put things into perspective

As a believer you could go through situations where you have fear, because fear is a natural human instinct, however when iman sinks into the heart it eliminates fear. So you might go through that natural feeling of fear, but you will overcome it thorough your iman.

Fearing Allah

Fearing Allah

On the authority of Muadh ibn Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him) it is related that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“Fear Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good one and it will wipe it out, and behave well towards people.”

[Tirmidhi]

Explanation

Fearing Allah does not mean that a person is always terrified and frightened of Allah. Rather the Fear of Allah constitutes the obedience of Allah, consciousness of Allah that Allah is present wherever we are, fulfillment of the rights of Allah and also the fulfillment of the rights of other Muslims, which would come under obedience of the commands of Allah. Moreover hope in Allah’s mercy, trusting in Allah, loving Allah and Rasullullah (saw), the religion of Allah and everything associated with it, all fall into the concept of Fearing Allah. May Allah make us all of those who truly fear Him (swt). Ameen
