FEAR AND ANXIETY

It is related by Abu Hurairah that the Apostle of God said, ‘He who has fear sets out at the beginning of the night and he who sets out at the beginning of the night reaches the destination safely. Remember the bargain if the lord is not cheap but extremely dear. Remember the bargain of the Lord is Paradise’       -Thirmidhi

COMMENTRY- In Arabia the caravans generally, started in the last part of the night and, therefore, the highway men too, made their raids during the early hours of the morning. The travellers who were careful, however, preferred to begin their journey in the earlier part of the night so that they reached the destination without being attacked by the robbers.

The Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) accordingly says that just as prudent travellers forgo the night’s sleep and start on journey soon after dusk, those who are keen to attain Paradise should also proceed energetically towards the goal and be ready to suppress their desire and give up comforts for the sake of it. He further emphasises that what the bondsmen is looking forward to obtaining from the Lord is not a thing of poor quality that can be given away without a price. But Heaven, the abode of celestial bliss, which no one can hope to gain without making a sacrifice of the most valued things like life, property and carnal appetites.

Says the Quraan, “Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the garden will be theirs. “
