-----------------------------------------------------------

Our life should stood on two basis:
1. Hope رجاء
2. Fear خوف

Hope for Allah SWT forgiveness and mercy
Fear for Allah SWT punishment and wrath

How to fear Allah SWT?

In order to fear Allah we need to believe[إيمان] in Him ...before we could believe [إيمان] we need to know what to believe through Knowledge [علم]

3 steps :-
1. تعلم - Gain knowledge through readings, ta'alim & observation
2. عبرة - Digest and Question it to a point of understanding and believing
3. خوف - When believe and the assurance are met, Fear will cultivate


Do Not Know why and what in order to Fear??
+Increase knowledge through discovery ... back to first step [تعلم]...
p/s: CIRCUIT in musolla open 24/7 .. do come

Knowing but not Fearing ??
+ Double check second step عبرة ... relate to the example of missonaries and preachers who know islam but still kufr ... they did not take عبرة and do not cultivate believe in it ... therefore KNOWING is not BELIEVING


Lets Muhasabah[Recall&Recount] our condition and reason with ourself in order to improve ourself and patch the hollowed holes in our heart to gain Jannah...

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said,

"If any one of you improve (follows strictly) his Islamic religion then his good deeds will be rewarded ten times to seven hundred times for each good deed and a bad deed will be recorded as it is."

[Sahih Bukhari Book #2, Hadith #40]
