The Fear of Allaah
Question:

What is the Meaning of the following Verse?

It is only those who have knowledge among His servants that fear Allaah

[Fatir 35:28]

Answer:

What this noble verse means is that only the scholars completely fear Allaah Almighty but scholars of what? This verse is speaking of those who have knowledge of Allaah Almighty, of His Shariah, and of His verses, and not those who have technical or scientific knowledge. Only scholars of religion, who know Allaahs verses, can fear Allaah Almighty as He deserves to be feared and worship Him as He deserves to be worshipped, as oppose to the ignorant person who knows nothing about Allaah Almighty, for such a person does not fear Him Almighty. And the more a person has knowledge of Allaah Almighty, the more will he fear Him Almighty and the more upright will he be in his application of his religion.
