Book Name:Imam e Azam ka Taqwa

lest hardness of our hearts, heedlessness and the intoxication of sins due to this we may fall into the depth of Hell. Therefore, before our life comes to an end and we are left with nothing except regret, we should try to develop the fear of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and piety in our hearts for the betterment of our Hereafter.

Importance of piety

Dear Islamic brothers! Remember! Piety and abstinence are very important for the success of the journey to the Hereafter. To achieve salvation in the Hereafter is very difficult without this great blessing, because the source of performing acts of worship and abstaining from sins, is the fear of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and the adoption of piety.

Definition of piety

This definition of piety has been mentioned in the book Tafseer Kabeer, which states that you must improve your inner self for Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ as you improve your appearance for the people. It has also been said that the pious one is he who follows the path of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, ignores the world, makes his Nafs habitual of sincerity and faithfulness and abstains from Haraam acts and the acts of disobedience. (Tafseer Kabeer, vol. 1, pp. 268)

Sayyiduna Sufyan Sawri رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said that the abstinent people are called pious ones because they abstain from those things from which it is usually difficult to abstain from. (Tafseer Durr-e-Mansoor, vol. 1, pp. 61)
