Subject: [K-Tic] Even the Prophet Feared Allah


Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Whosoever performs Qiyam during Lailat-ul-Qadr (Night of Decree), with Faith and being hopeful of Allahs reward, will have his former sins forgiven."[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Qiyam here means what keeps one awake to one's capacity and for worship and makes one perform Nawafil, impels one to beg pardon for sins from Allah, urges one to praise Him. Specially, if a person performs `Isha prayer and Fajr prayer in congregation, he will hopefully attain all those distinctions which are mentioned in this Hadith.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "He who observes optional prayer (Tarawih prayers) throughout Ramadan, out of sincerity of Faith and in the hope of earning reward will have his past sins pardoned."[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Even the Prophet Feared




Fear is a distressing feeling that one experiences when expecting something threatening, evil, dangerous, etc.  In extreme cases, it can turn into a passive feeling that results in paralysis and helpless panic.

However, fearing Allah is a positive feeling 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 and blessings 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." (authenticated by Al-Albani)

The more you know about Allah and His perfect Attributes and all-wise Acts, the more veneration and awe you have for Him; and the more you know about your humble and sinful soul, the stronger becomes your fear of Him. Therefore, the Quran explicitly states that

{None truly fears Allah among His servants but those filled with knowledge [of the word and the way of Allah].} (Al-Mu'minun 35:28)

The Prophet's fear of Allah was very obvious in his lifestyle. He was always conscious of Allah's watchfulness and his heart was constantly vigilant to be in total submission to Him. His fear and love of Allah dominated all his heart and hence he set the perfect example for humanity in every aspect of life as minutely recorded by His loving Companions.

His heart was so soft that he would weep at the recitation of the Qur'an, the word of Allah, reacting to its overpowering admonitions. When asked about the gray hair in his head, he answered that Surat Hud and its sisters, which portray the events and horrors of the Day of Resurrection, had caused his hair to turn gray.

  Become a fan of the Shari`ah Zone

Fearing Allah left no room for boastfulness in his heart and rendered it so modest before his Lord. Hence, he forbad his followers to exaggerate in praising or overestimating him saying:

"Do not go to the extreme in praising me as Christians did with the Son of Mary. I am only a servant [of Allah], so say: [He is] the servant of Allah and His Messenger." (Al-Bukhari)

Even with his fellows he behaved modestly and said:

"I am only a servant [of Allah]. I eat as servants eat and sit as servants sit."

He would help his family in their housework and would do as any kind and helpful man does in his house.

Moreover, he was in full control over his words and deeds. He spoke only the truth and was always a man of his word. He never wronged a person or beat a woman, a servant, or any other person except in the cause of Allah and never took revenge for himself but only when the limits set by Allah were encroached.

Fear was reported to have been conspicuously recognized in his face when noticing such seemingly natural occurrences as a blowing storm, gathering clouds, or solar eclipse and he would in response hasten to supplication, as an expression of fear, awe, and veneration to the Lord of the universe; since such phenomena would remind him of the destruction of old disbelieving nations that were destroyed by devastating natural disasters.

The Prophet's ideal fear of Allah did not cause him to lead a strictly monastic life as monks do, he even forbad his followers to do so.

Fear of Allah, nevertheless, fueled his heart with patience and diligence that were necessary and significant factors in the success of his call taking into consideration all the troubles he went through and all physical and psychological sufferings he experienced since he began his mission.

The Prophet's fear of Allah was never a sign of a weak or a coward heart. He (peace and blessings be upon him) was the most courageous among his companions to the extent that he would be the closest one to the ranks of the enemies in fighting and they would take shelter in him.

Moreover, his ideal fear of Allah did not cause him to lead a strictly monastic life as monks do, he even forbad his followers to do so. He had a number of wives and children; he liked perfume and had favorite meals, though in general he and his family never fully satisfied their hunger with wheat bread for two consecutive days and so often few months would pass before a fire was kindled for food in his houses.

In this context, we may recall the account of three men who came to the Prophet's house to inquire about his diligence in worship. Having been informed about his moderate approach, they thought they should be more austere because they did not have the privilege of having their sins forgiven as he (peace and blessings be upon him) had.

Therefore, one of them declared that he would keep vigilant at night in Prayer and would not sleep; another one forbad himself to marry; and the third declared that he would observe continuous fast.

On knowing this, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) condemned their way of thinking asserting that he was the most God-fearing among them and, nonetheless, he would fast and break fasting, pray at night and sleep, and marry women. Indeed, the best way of guidance is his.

The above glimpses of the lifestyle of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) demonstrate a wonderful balance that marked his sublime character- an example to be followed to the end of time.

AL-MU'AKHKHIR / AL-MUQADDEEM - The Deferrer, The Keeper Behind / The Advancer
If Allah were to punish people for their wrong actions, not a single creature would be left upon Earth. But He defers them until a predetermined time. When their specified time arrives, they cannot delay it for a single hour or bring it forward. ( Surat an-Nahl, 16:61)
Allah leaves behind and brings forward whoever He wills. Being the sole Creator of everything, He has the power to do whatever He wills with anything that exists. He determines the time for every event and, as the actual master of every being and its destiny, predetermines the events of every being's life. When the specified time arrives, what has been ordained takes place, according to His will. Allah calls attention to this fact in the Qur'an, as follows:
Every nation has an appointed time. When their time comes, they cannot delay it a single hour or bring it forward. ( Surat al-A'raf, 7:34)
No one except Allah knows this appointed time. No leaf falls before its appointed time, and every moment of a living being's life, from its birth to its death, is subject to this divine timing. However, if Allah wills, He can delay or bring forward any event, for the human concept of time being divided into the past, present, and future does not apply to Him. As the Qur'an states:
Do not consider Allah to be unaware of what the wrongdoers perpetrate. He is merely deferring them to a Day on which their sight will be transfixed. ( Surat Ibrahim, 14:42)
No nation can advance its appointed time, nor can they delay it. ( Surat al-Hijr, 15:5)
This being the case, all sincere servants must strive to draw closer to Him, without considering what He has delayed or brought forward, and must be absolutely pleased with what He gives, for, as the verse maintains, "Man is prone to be impetuous..." ( Surat al-Isra', 17:11) We often expect something to take place or to be over at once. Yet, only Allah knows what is best for us and so ordains all events and situations accordingly. What a person thinks might be good may actually be harmful. Thus, a believer should be pleased with whatever Allah ordains.

No one acted better than the likes of these two characteristics


From Anas who said that the Messenger of Allaah - sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – met Abu Dharr, and said to him:
'O Abu Dharr Shall I not inform you of two characteristics which are lighter on your back and heavier on the scales than other than them?'  He answered: 'Of course O Messenger of Allaah.' He said:
'You should have good manners and remain silent for a long time. I swear by He in whose Hand is my soul no one has acted upon better than the likes of these two characteristics.' [Silsilah ahadeeth a saheehah No. 1938]
Note:- The first and foremost of good manners is to give Allaah His right: Tawhid. It is impossible to achieve good manners while committing the greatest dhulm (oppression) i.e. shirk.
