I fear Allaah
Empty words… Beware ❤
Dear muslims, do not be like the outcast Shaytaan who said to the people ‘Verily I fear Allaah’
In surah Anfaal he said:
إِنِّي بَرِيءٌ مِّنكُمْ إِنِّي أَرَى مَا لاَ تَرَوْنَ إِنِّيَ أَخَافُ اللّهَ وَاللّهُ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ
“Behold, I am not responsible for you: behold, I see something that you do not see: behold, I fear God-for God is severe in retribution !”
And in Surah Hashr he said:
إِنِّي بَرِيءٌ مِّنكَ إِنِّي أَخَافُ اللَّهَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ
“Behold, I am not responsible for thee: behold, I fear God, the Sustainer of all the worlds!”
But does this mean that Iblees really fears Allaah? The scholars give different tafsir of these verses.
With regards to Surah Anfaal they say that he is not fearful of Allaah but rather he actually sees the Angels coming towards him and he says what he says just to get away from the people.
In Surah Hashr he says I fear Allaah but what he truly means is he fears his punishment since he knows his destiny.
And some scholars say that it is all a lie to trick mankind, and it is nothing but empty words.
