fear of Allah
By Dr. Muhammad Salma | 27 May 2013
Fearing Allah is a positive trait that once properly settled into the heart changes one’s life considerably to be in conformity with divine injunctions. Therefore, as once said by one of the early pious predecessors, when fearing others, you flee from them, but when fearing Allah, you flee to Him.
Practically, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) perfectly embodied the true fear of Allah. His very words rightfully proclaimed: “I am the most knowing of Allah and the most fearful of Him among you.”

Indeed the knowledge of Allah Almighty given to us through the revelations to our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the most beneficial knowledge we can have. Because, it is this knowledge that enables us to know our Lord and worship Him in the manner He should be worshipped.
Without God allowing us to drink a drop from the boundless ocean of knowledge, we would have been completely lost. But God is all merciful. So He communicated with man: “Know, then, (O man,) that there is no deity save Allah…”. (Muhammad 47:19)
