Hadith Explanation

Knowledge Produces Fear of Allah

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “By Allah, of all people, I am the one with the most knowledge of Allah, and I fear Him the most.” [Bukhari; Kitab al-Adab]

Fear of Allah, Exalted is He, springs from knowledge of Him, and of His Attributes, and awareness of Allah’s Glory, Might and Self-Sufficiency – and of the fact that He is not accountable for what He does, while His servants are.

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) says: “Surely those of His servants who know, fear Allah.” [Quran: Surah 35, Ayat 28]

At other times fear is caused by the enormity of the wrong actions which the servant has undertaken. The degree of a servant’s fear depends on his awareness of his own faults and on his recognition of Allah.
