Lessons from Hadith Shareef ~ Fear Allah Wherever You Are ~ Whether You Are in Public or in Privacy


Hazrat Abu Zar Jundub bin Junadah (RA) and Hazrat Mu’aaz bin Jabal (RA), reported that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, said:  “Fear Allah wherever you may be; follow up an evil deed with a good one, it will wipe (the former) out, and behave good-naturedly towards people.” ~ Al-Tirmidhi


Important aspects discussed in this Hadith :

• Fear Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala in Public and in Privacy

•  The Concept of Taqwa ~ One must be mindful that Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala is watching him and therefore he must only do those things that Allah has commanded him to do and totally refrain from those actions that Allah has prohibited him from doing

• An Important Benefit of Taqwa – Whosoever fears Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala, Allah makes an opening for him from all his difficulties and sustains him from unseen sources

• Follow up an evil deed with a good deed. The good deed will obliterate the evil deed.

• Deal and meet with people with good character.
