    • “O MANKIND! Worship your Sustainer, who has created you and those who lived before you, so that you might remain conscious of Him (TAQWA). Who has made the earth a resting-place for you and the sky a canopy, and has sent down water from the sky and thereby brought forth fruits for your sustenance: do not, then, claim that there is any power that could rival Allah, when you know [that He is One].” (Qur’an: Baqarah: 2: 21-22)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • “O you who have attained to faith! Be conscious of Allah (TAQWA) with all the consciousness that is due to Him, and do not allow death to overtake you ere you have surrendered yourselves unto Him.” (Qur’an: Aali ‘Imran: 3: 102)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • “O YOU who have attained to faith! Remain conscious of Allah (TAQWA), and seek to come closer unto Him, and strive hard in His cause, so that you might attain to a happy state.” (Qur’an: Maa-idah: 5: 35)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • “O YOU who have attained to faith! Do not put yourselves forward in the presence of [what] Allah and His Messenger [may have ordained], but remain conscious of Allah (TAQWA): for, verily, Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing!” (Qur’an: Hujurat: 49: 1)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • “O YOU who have attained to faith! Remain conscious of Allah (TAQWA); and let every human being look to what he sends ahead for the morrow! And [once again]: Remain conscious of Allah, for Allah is fully aware of all that you do; and be not like those who are oblivious of Allah, and whom He therefore causes to be oblivious of [what is good for] their own selves: [for] it is they, they who are truly depraved!” (Qur’an: Hashr: 59: 18-19)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • “Not equal are those who are destined for the fire and those who are destined for paradise: those who are destined for paradise - it is they, they [alone] who shall triumph [on Judgment Day]!” (Qur’an: Hashr: 59: 20)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

    • “O YOU who have attained to faith! Remain conscious of Allah (TAQWA), and believe in His Messenger, [and] He will grant you doubly of His grace, and will light for you a light wherein you shall walk, and will forgive you [your past sins]: for Allah is much-forgiving, a dispenser of grace.” (Qur’an: Hadid: 57: 28)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

    • “O you who have attained to faith! Remain conscious of Allah (TAQWA), and [always] speak with a will to bring out [only] what is just and true – [whereupon] He will cause your deeds to be virtuous, and will forgive you your sins. And [know that] whoever pays heed unto Allah and His Messenger has already attained to a mighty triumph.” (Qur’an: Ahzab: 33: 70-71)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • “Fulfil the personal religious obligations (FARDH’) that has been fixed by Allah (upon Muslims), and this will make you to become a person of TAQWA (righteous and God-fearing).” (Hadith reported by Tabarani)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • “Be conscious of Allah (TAQWA) wherever you may be, and follow-up whatever misdeeds you may have committed (as reparation) by doing (more) righteous deeds (for these) shall efface them (the negative effect of these misdeeds), and interact with people in the best manner of disposition (i.e. adopt a noble character).” (Hadith reported by Tabrani from Abi Dzar)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • “Islam (submission to the Will of Allah) is built upon five .... “ (Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.) “Do not regard your duty in ‘ibadat as mere rituals, for they are for your education and developmental program to become truly a Muslim”All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • • Aspects of practices, when consistently performed definitely will leave an indelible impression upon our disposition – sooner or later by Allah’s leave. • To hasten impact, doing an act with knowledge certainly is important. Thus acts of devotions which in Islam constitute the essential programme for every Muslim’s development. To merely see these aspects purely from the “ do’s and don’t ” alone ; or mere ritualistic perspective, would be incorrect. • Implicit in all the teaching on the practices is the development of inner awareness and purity in the Nafs (Self), which would then form that character (disposition) of a person who submits to Allah.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • • There is always that inner dimension in the Muslims’ acts of worship , the spiritual to what is seen as physical. • Why It begins with the physical aspects is because man’s inner spirituality is usually dimmed by our attraction to the physical and material outlook in life. • The development favoured by Islam is for the achievement of a balanced growth, both physical and spiritual: for the material well-being in this world as well as, more importantly, the eternal happiness in the Hereafter – the place where our NAFS (Self) ultimately will be for eternity.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • • We may taste the higher conditions (HAAL), but by our sincere striving we hope Allah may grant us the success (Taufiq) to have consistency (ISTIQOMAH) to be in this condition such that it becomes our permanent state or station (MAQOM).” • Thus, this basic condition (HAAL) and state or station (MAQOM) – of “ISLAM” OR the condition of “submission and obedience to Allah’s will ” must firstly be traversed first prior to attainment of the higher stations. • The condition of being Muslim is for all to begin with, whereas the subsequent stations are subsequent conferment or attainment of the degree of nearness to Allah the highest being TAQWA.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • TAQWA From the word root “WAU-QAF-YA” - we have: “WI-QAA-YA” meaning – “to safeguard; shelter; shield; take care from; precaution; avert; etc.” Thus the implication is “to have regard or being conscious of Allah such that we are especially cautious (by safeguarding ourselves and our deeds from all sins), so as not to incur His wrath and punishment.”All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • TAQWA The usual translation into English is ‘reverential fear of Allah’, which may convey some aspect of it, yet the full understanding of this term still evades many. I prefer to use term “the ‘consciousness of Allah’, which entails factors which lead to true obedience to Allah s.w.t. and His Messenger Muhammad s.a.w. - obedience to what Allah has ordered and staying away from what Allah forbade.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • TAQWA Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazalie rhm. [Ref: “al-Ghazalie – Inner Dimensions of Islamic Worship”] has listed six important qualities in ‘Taqwa’ (consciousness of Allah):All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • [1] AWARENESS By conscious awareness we mean the state in which one’s mind and feelings are in no way distracted from what one is doing and saying. Perception is united with action and speech. Thoughts do not wonder. When the mind remains attentive to what one is doing, when one is whole-heartedly involved, and when nothing makes one heedless, that is when one has achieved conscious awareness.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • [2] UNDERSTANDING Understanding the meaning of one’s words is something that goes beyond awareness, for one may be conscious of making an utterance, yet not be aware of the meaning of that utterance. What we mean by understanding therefore is an awareness that also include comprehension of the meaning of one’s utterance. People differ in this respect, not sharing a common understanding of the Qur’an and the glorifications (we uttered).All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • [3] REVERENCE As for reverence, this is something beyond both awareness and understanding. A man may address his servant in full awareness and understanding the meaning of his words, yet without reverence, for reverence is in additional element.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • [4] AWE As for awe, it is over and above reverence. In fact, it represents a kind of fear that grows out of the latter (i.e. reverence). Without experiencing fear, one will not stand in awe. There is an ordinary fear of things we find repugnant, like scorpions or bad temper, but this is not awe. What we called awe, is the kind of fear we have for a mighty king. Awe is the kind of fear induced by a sense of majesty.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • [5] HOPE As for hope, this is unquestionably something else again. There are many who revere one or other, and who are in awe of him or afraid of his power, yet do not hope to be rewarded by him. In our prayers, however, we must hope for the reward of God, Great and Glorious is He, just as we fear His punishment for our faults.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • [6] SHAME As for shame, it is something additional to all the rest, for it is based on the realization of one’s deficiencies and the apprehension of sin. It is quite possible to conceive of reverence, fear and hope, without this element of shame.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
    • In summary, TAQWA is that state of consciousness of Allah s.w.t. with: [1] AWARENESS [2] UNDERSTANDING [3] REVERENCE [4] AWE [5] HOPE [6] SHAMEAll Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
