In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] said:
Khash’yah is the basis of [sound] knowledge. It is ‘Fear of Allaah’ that is founded upon knowledge and exaltation [i.e. exalting Allaah]. And due to this Allaah [The Most High] said:
It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allaah.
[Surah Al-Faatir’ Aayah 28]
If a person knows Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] based on sure knowledge and in the manner in which a person should be acquainted with who Allaah is, then fear of Allaah must enter his heart, because he becomes acquainted with the Great Lord [i.e. The Creator of everything, The All-Provider and the One with absolute dominion over everything], The All-Powerful, The Irresistible and The All-knower of everything that is concealed and hidden from humans [and the entire creation], so you find him – completely- being obedient to Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic].
