What Is Taqwa?


Allah says in the Quran: “It is not Taqwa that you turn your faces toward East or West, but it is Taqwa to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and the Angels, and the Book and the Messengers, to spend of your substance out of love for Him, for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer, for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves; to be steadfast in prayer and practice regular charity; to fulfill the contracts you have made; to be firm and patient, in pain and adversity. Those are the truthful and those are the muttaqun.” [Quran 2:177]

Taqwa means to abstain from doing anything that would bring about the Wrath and Displeasure of the Lord All-Mighty; Taqwa is often translated as 'piety' or 'God-fearing', but a better equivalent would be 'God-consciousness'. Taqwa is the shunning of everything and anything that causes a deficiency in one’s relationship with Allah. It is the idea that a believer is always on guard and is perpetually alert of not committing any action that would earn the displeasure of the Almighty.

Narrated byAbuHurayrah The Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) said, “The most common thing which leads people to Paradise is Taqwa of Allah and good conduct, and the most common thing which leads people to the Hell Fire is the mouth and the private parts.” Tirmidhi[Hadith 627]

Taqwa is to determine before doing anything whether the Allah will be pleased or Dis-pleased with the deed; if one determines that the Allah will be pleased with the deed, he must do it wholeheartedly; and if one determines that the deed would bring about the displeasure and Wrath of Allah, he must immediately abstain from it. And Allah alone knows the best.
