Hadith Explanation

What Fear Does For You

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “No believer who has wept from fear of Allah, Exalted is He, will ever enter the Fire unless milk returns back into its udder.” [Tirmidhi; Kitab Fadha’il al-Jihad]

Al-Fudayl ibn Iyyad said: “Whoever fears Allah will be guided by this fear to all good.”

Fear burns up forbidden desires, and wrong actions which can be so dear to a servant become distasteful, just as honey becomes repugnant to someone who desires it, if he discovers that it is poisoned. Fear tames the limbs and fills the heart with submission, humility and tranquility. Arrogance, hatred and envy depart from it, and it is filled with Him, through fear of Him and through contemplating the danger of His punishment – and so it becomes occupied with nothing other than Him, and has no concern other than contemplation, bringing itself to account and striving in the way of Allah.
