Balanced Approach To Fear Of Allah
Salam Alaikum. I stopped watching lectures/bayans of various preachers as it seems that all they do is fear monger. It seems the picture they paint is no matter how hard we try it’s not enough to get into Jannah unless you act like the typical molvi/mullah eg keep long beard/robe/shalwar kameez, shun almost all forms of entertainment, stay away from non Muslims and the list goes on.
Listening to all this had actually caused me to develop mental health issues related to the fear of Allah (the most painful experience in my life which I wouldn’t even want people I despise to go through). However deep down inside I know Allah is not like the perception these people leave (as if he’s looking for the smallest of excuses to throw us into hell 😅) and that it’s most likely the other way around.
The other day listened to this clip by doctor Israr that sort of made me relive the whole experience in which he says something along the lines that if one person commits the smallest of sins consistently on purpose so much so that he has 1% bad deeds and 99% good deeds then he’s doomed.
Can anyone plz explain the reality of this whole issue and how one should reconcile or have a balanced approach to fear of Allah. Jazakallah Khair!
