Ataa Ibn Deenaar (rahimahullaah ) narrated from Saeed Bin Jubair (rahimahullaah ) who said:

“Indeed reverential fear is that you fear Allaah until it becomes a barrier between you and disobedience. This reverential fear is remembrance of Allaah and obedience to Allaah; so whoever obeys Allaah is one who (truly) remembers Him. And whoever does not obey Allaah is not one who (truly) remembers Him, even if he utters a lot of words of glorification and recites the Qur’aan a lot”.
