There is a certain type of fear that is experienced only by the knowledgeable, and it is called Khashyah in Arabic. This is a fear that is based on knowledge. Standard fear of Allah is experienced by the general Muslims whilst Khashyah is only experienced by the devout and the scholars from among them; the more knowledge one has regarding Allah, the more he will fear Him. When one fears a person who may or may not apprehend him then this is regular fear, whereas if he is absolutely sure that this person can seize him and inflict harm upon him, then it is Khashyah.
