Hadith

The fact is that those who call themselves “Muslims” need to infuse their hearts with “Taqwa” if they want to be viewed by Allah as true believers. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,

“The most common thing which leads people to Paradise is taqwa of Allah and good conduct, and the most common thing which leads people to the Hell Fire is the mouth and the private parts.” [Tirmidhi].

Taqwa includes doing everything that Allah has enjoined whether it is waajib (obligatory) or mustahabb (recommended), and avoiding all that He has forbidden, whether it is haraam (forbidden) or makrooh (disliked).

Qur'an

Allah, The Most High, says in Surat Al-Baqarah verse 177:

“It is not taqwa that you turn your faces toward East or West, but it is taqwa to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book and the Messengers, to spend of your substance out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer and practice regular charity; to fulfill the contracts you have made; to be firm and patient, in pain and adversity. Those are the truthful and those are the muttaqun.”

Let’s ensure, therefore, that our worship is not limited to empty acts but is rather adorned with Taqwa and obedience to the Rules of Islam.

Quotes

mar ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه) once asked Ibn Ka’ab (رضي الله عنه) the definition of taqwa.In reply he asked, “Have you ever had to traverse a thorny path?” Hadrat Omar replied in the affirmative and Hadrat Ka’ab continued, “How do you do so?”

Omar (رضي الله عنه) said that he would carefully walk through after first having collected all loose and flowing clothing in his hands so nothing gets caught in the thorns hence injuring him.

Ka’ab (رضي الله عنه) said, “This is the definition of taqwa, to protect oneself from sin through life’s dangerous journey so that one can successfully complete the journey unscathed by sin.”

ومن يعظم شعائر الله فإنها من تقوى القلوب

And whoever respects the signs of Allah, this surely is (the outcome) of the piety of hearts. [Al-Ĥaj, 32]
