Purification of The Soul Scholars of Islam The Salaf - Pious Predecessors Worship - 'Ibaadah'

Those Who Truly Remember Allaah

Ataa Ibn Deenaar (rahimahullaah) narrated from Saeed Bin Jubayr (rahimahullaah) who said: Indeed reverential fear is that you fear Allaah until it becomes a barrier between you and disobedience. This reverential fear is Dhikrul Allaah (Remembrance of Allaah) and obedience to Allaah. Therefore, whoever obeys Allaah is one who (truly) remembers Him, and whoever does not obey Allaah is not one who (truly) remembers Him even if he utters a lot of Tasbeeh (Glorification of Allaah) and recites the Qur’aan a lot.’’
