True Reverence of Allah and Remembrance


Sa‘īd ibn Jubayr رحمه الله said:

“Indeed [true] Khashiyyah (reverence of Allāh) is that you revere Him such that it prevents you from His disobedience, that is true Khashiyyah. And Dhikr (remembrance of Allāh) is obedience to Allāh, whoever obeys Allāh has remembered Him, and whoever does not obey Him, he is not a dhākir (a person who remembers) even though he may glorify [Allāh] and recite the Qur’ān in abundance.”[1]

[1] Siyar-A‘lām-An-Nubalā

إِنَّ الخَشْيَةَ أَنْ تَخْشَى اللهَ حَتَّى تَحُوْلَ خَشْيَتُكَ بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ مَعْصِيَتِكَ، فَتِلْكَ الخَشْيَةُ، وَالذِّكْرُ طَاعَةُ اللهِ، فَمَنْ أَطَاعَ اللهَ، فَقَدْ ذَكَرَهُ، وَمَنْ لَمْ يُطِعْهُ، فَلَيْسَ بِذَاكِرٍ، وَإِنْ أَكْثَرَ التَّسْبِيْحَ وَتِلاَوَةَ القُرْآنِ.
