Ramadan - Episode 11


In The Shade of Ramadan ~ Season 2


Episode 11 - Fear of Allah

~ Br. Bilal Kaleem talks about Fear of Allah


Surah Al-Anfal (8)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

O you who believe! If you obey and fear Allâh, He will grant you Furqân [(a criterion to judge between right and wrong), or (Makhraj, i.e. a way for you to get out from every difficulty)], and will expiate for you your sins, and forgive you; and Allâh is the Owner of the Great Bounty. (8:29)



Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:

"Three (things) follow a dead person: Members of his family, his property and his deeds. Two of them return; and one remains with him. The people and his wealth return; his deeds remain with him".

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


This Hadith has a warning for the Muslims that they should adopt the way of piety and fear (of Allah), not of sin and impiety because those are actions which will go with him to the grave and which decide his fate in the life after death.

If he carries with him good deeds, he will have a comfortable sojourn in Barzakh (the intervening stage between death and Resurrection).

On the contrary, if the record of his life is devoid of good deeds, all the wealth that he leaves behind, even if it is beyond calculation, will be of no avail to him because what he will be having with him will be the bad deeds which he performed during his life. These bad deeds will be a constant source of torture for him during his stay in Barzakh.
