"Allah did not mention taqwa first. He first mentioned
the fact that He created the ability to sin within man. Now it is
your duty not to fulfil the urge to sin. This will create taqwa
(piety) in you. If you want to obtain piety, then all you have to do
is abstain from sin.

Achieve Reward without Doing any Work
The owners of factories first make their employees work and
then reward them. But in this case, Allah is granting reward for
not doing any work. Do not steal, speak lies and do not look at
women. By not doing these things, you will be rewarded with
piety and Allah's friendship. What is taqwa? Taqwa is when you
have the urge to sin but you abstain due to the fear of Allah."

(Ãrifbillah Shaykh Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar D.B.)

Narrated Hz An-Nu'man bin Bashir rz.a: I heard RasulAllah sal lal lahu alaihi wasallam saying, 'Both legal n illegal things are evident but in between them there are doubtful (suspicious) things n most of the people have no knowledgeabout them. So whoever saves himself from these suspicious things saves his religion n his honor. n whoever indulges in these suspicious things is like a shepherd who grazes (his animals) near the Hima (private pasture) of someone else n at any moment he is liable to get in it. (O people!) Beware! Every king has a Hima n the Hima of Allah swt on the earth is His illegal (forbidden) things. Beware! There is a piece of flesh in the body if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt n that is the heart.(Bukhari,Book #2, Hadith #49)

*What is Taqwa?*

*Taqwa* is not only about manners..
*Taqwa* is not about looking Islamic...
*Taqwa* is not about sporting a beard or wearing a Hijab...
*Taqwa* is not about appearance

*BUT*

*Taqwa* is when you miss a prayer, you feel uneasy the whole day...
*Taqwa* is when you speak a lie, you feel bad...
*Taqwa* is the guilt that follows when you hurt someone knowingly or unknowingly...
*Taqwa* is the shame and regret that follows a sin you committed knowing full well how it stands in the sight of Allah...
*Taqwa* is when you cannot sleep after disobeying or disrespecting your parents...
*Taqwa* is to cry in the depths of night fearing none but the one above the Arsh...
*Taqwa* is the fear that refrains us from sinning when nobody familiar is around...
*Taqwa* is the guts and the will to please Allah, even when the whole world is hell bent on displeasing Him...
*Taqwa* is to wear that beard and Hijab for the sole reason of pleasing our Creator and to keep it on as per Sunnah....
*Taqwa* is to stay happy and smiling, knowing that this world is a prison for believers...
*Taqwa* is the good manners and character we practice for the sake of Allah...
*Taqwa* is the struggle to better ourselves according to Islam, with each passing day...
*Taqwa* is not just about rising in deen, but about falling, rising again and never letting go!
*Taqwa* is all about what is IN OUR HEARTS.

_And if our hearts are filled with proper *Taqwa*, then actions automatically follow..._
_And the sweetness of these actions is so fulfilling!_

_*Allah Subhanahu Taala says:*_
_*Remind, for reminder benefits the believers*_ ✨
