At Taqwa and Its Effects (the Characteristics of the Pious and their Recompense)
At-Taqwa: To fear Allaah means, that He be obeyed and not disobeyed, and that He be remembered and not forgotten, and that He be thanked and not denied. At-Taqwa is defined in comprehensive detail in this concise treatise by the noble Scholar Rabee’ bin Hadi Al-Madkhali (May Allaah preserve him). He explains its meaning in the Sharee’ah and linguistically and describes who the people of At-Taqwa, the Muttaqun, really are? The noble Shaykh also prompts the reader to ponder on True Guidance, that which leads to the noble status of ‘People of Taqwa’ and their rewards as per the references in the Qur’an and the Sunnah. This book is enriched by a ‘Questions and Answers’ section which enables the reader to observe real life instances when Taqwa is necessary to discern the right from the wrong behaviour. A great reminder to keep close at all times.
