Why Do The Upright Scholars Fear Allaah More Than Everyone Else? - By Ibn Abbaas (radiyallaahu-anhumaa)

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] said:

إِنَّمَا يَخْشَى اللَّهَ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ الْعُلَمَاءُ

It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allah.

[Soorah Faatir: Ayah: 28]

Ibn Abbaas (radiyallaahu-anhumaa) said: That is because they (i.e. the true scholars) know (with (certainty) that Allaah is able to do all things. [1]

Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) was asked about Ma’roof Al-Karkhee (rahimahullaah), so he said: He (Ma’roof) had the foundation of knowledge with him and that is fear of Allaah based on knowledge- knowledge about Allaah’s Greatness, Complete Sovereignty and Dominion. [2]
