The God-wary and God fearing people-الأتقياءوالمتّقون

1. The God-wary is one who guards against sins, and the purified is one who purifies himself of faults.

2. The God-wary are those whose souls are chaste and whose needs are few; people hope for good from them and feel secure from their evil.

2ـ اَلْمُتَّقُونَ أنْفُسُهُمْ عَفِيفَةٌ، وحاجاتَهُمْ خَفِيْفَةٌ، وخَيْراتُهُمْ مَأمُولَةٌ، وَشُرُُورُهُمْ مَأمُونَةٌ.

4. The God-wary are those whose souls are content, whose lustful desires are dead and whose faces are cheerful while their hearts are sad.

5. The God-wary are those whose actions are pure, whose eyes are tearful and whose hearts are fearful.

4ـ اَلْمُتَّقُونَ أعْمالُهُمْ زاكِيَةٌ، وأعْيُنُهُمْ باكِيَةٌ، وقُلُوبُهُمْ وَجِلَةٌ.

6. The God-wary person is one whose lustful desire is dead, whose anger is suppressed, and who is thankful in times of comfort and patient in times of hardships.

5ـ اَلمُتَّقي مَيْتَةٌ شَهْوَتُهُ، مَكْظُومٌ غَيْظُهُ، فِي الرَّخاءِ شَكُورٌ، وفِي المَكارِهِ صَبُورٌ.

7. Verily the God-wary are all those [believers] who are generous, chaste and benevolent.

13ـ لِلْمُتَّقي ثَلاثُ عَلامات: إخْلاصُ العَمَلِ، وقَصْرُ الأمَلِ، واغْتِنامُ المَهَلِ.

15. If the heavens and earth were closed upon a servant and then he became God-wary, Allah would surely make for him a way out from them and provide for him from whence he does not reckon.

14ـ لَوْ أنَّ السَّماواتِ والأرَضَ كانَتا عَلى عَبْد رَتْقاً ثُمَّ اتَّقَى اللّهَ لَجَعَلَ اللّهُ لَهُ مِنْهُما مَخْرَجاً ورَزَقَهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لايَحْتَسِبُ.

27ـ وَسيقَ الَّذينَ اتَّقَوْا رَبَّهُمْ إلَى الجَنَّةِ زُمَراً قَدْ أُمِنَ العِقابُ، وانْقَطَعَ العِتابُ، وزُحْزِحُوا عَنِ النّارِ، واطْمَئَنَّتْ بِهِمُ الدّارُ،وَ رَضُوا الْمَثْوى وَالقَرارَ.
