A Balanced Life


He [Nuh (a.s.] said. “O my people, Indeed I am to you a clear warner, [saying], ‘Worship Allah, fear Him and obey me’…” [Nuh: 3]


The heart is the focal point of a human body. And it is in the heart where Taqwa resides, which is displayed through good actions.

The Prophet ﷺ said, “At-Taqwa Haahunaa [Taqwa is here]” pointing towards the heart. Similarly, if we imagine a balance, Taqwa would be its central part. And the two sides would be the practical manifestation of Taqwa - Worship of Allah and Obedience of the Messenger. Both these aspects go hand in hand and develop in a person the quality of Allah consciousness - Taqwa. It also brings about balance in a person’s life. Therefore, it is necessary for a person who opts for this quality to worship Allah the way He taught His servants in the Qur’an and Sunnah, and to follow the way of the Messenger ﷺin the true sense.
