General Islamic Principle: The Importance of having the fear of Allaah

By Lekan Yakub
We give thanks to Almighty Allaah who has made us Muslims. We wish to admonish ourselves today on the “fear of Allaah” which is part of the Islamic mentoring activities on rafeeqee.com

Allaah says in the Noble Qur’aan:
“O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be
feared, and die not except in a state of Islam.
And hold fast, all together, by the rope which
Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided
among yourselves…” (Qur’aan 3:102-103)
“It is only the Evil One that suggests to you the
fear of his votaries: be not afraid of them but
fear Me if you have faith.” (Qur’aan 3:175)

O brothers and sisters in Islaam…Always have the fear of Allaah in your mind; remember
that you cannot afford to do anything without His
grace. Do not forget that Islam is a mission of
peace and love. Keep the noble Prophet (peace
be upon him) before you as a model of bravery
and piety.
Also there is an hadith which Abu Hurairah (radhiallahu anhu) narrated that “Allah’s Messenger (sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam) was asked, “Who are the most honorable of the people?” The Prophet
(sallallâhu ‘alayhi wasallam) said, “The most
honorable of them in Allah’s Sight are those
who keep their duty to Allah and fear Him…”

May Almighty Allaah llah guide us along the
Straight Path, and protect us from deviation after
having guidance. And may Allah bless the Leader
of His Messengers, Muhammad (peace be upon him), his family and his companions, and all who follow in
their footsteps until the Final Hour, Ameen.
