  • What Manifestation Of Fear Of Allah Is Ibadah?

    Posted by Mohammad Ali Soomro on September 18, 2023 at 11:02 pm

    my question is that when it is said that ibaadah in essence is realization or feelings of servitude/humbleness to God. and the things that realization manifest itself are imaan too. like fear of Allah, reliance in Allah, love for Allah.

    my question is that what part of fear of Allah’s disobedience is Eman/Ibadan ? is it just a realization that this thing must not be done? or is it the fast heartbeat because of it or anxiety or other bodily symptoms?

    if someone gets anxiety and fast heartbeat because of fear of Allah’s punishment. and he wants this anxiety and fast heartbeat to go away because of its adverse affects on body (low concentration, less sleep, irritable bowel) , so he eats medications or does exercises so that the effects on body that were produced because of the fear are minimized or finished, would it be like the person stopped a manifestation of ibadah which is Eman?

    The feeling of humbleness and servitude is an inner realization which leads to inner feelings of gratitude, fear, love and respect etc. All of this is internal, which may or may not result in an external gesture like in the form of an prayer, praise for God or prostration etc. The fear discussed here is not the kind of fear which one feels after watching a beast, for example, rather it is the fear of accountability or fear out of respect which prohibits/prevents or makes one concerned about a sin. The result of this fear should not be shivering of the body, rather it should manifest itself in the form of repentance and ruju towards Allah. If one is experiencing physiological manifestations like the ones described in the question, then one should seek medical help. And seeking medical help is not equal to stopping oneself from manifestation of ibadah, rather the manifestation of Ibadah in the context of fear had already happened when one felt the inner feeling of sincere remorse and repentance after committing a sin.

    Please also refer to the videos provided in the following thread to understand the concept of Ibadah:
