Commentary

 ‘AttaqUllaaha – (observe your duty to Allah, fear God), the order regarding abstinence, control of passions and God fearing has come again and again in the holy Qur’an that every individual should have fear of God Almighty at the time of doing any work, should adopt abstinence, should control his passions, ward off bad manners, feel disgust from the sins, evildoing and devilishness. These all commands come under one sentence i.e. ‘AttaqUllaaha. The origin of God fearing is very important in every field of the Muslim’s life. Till the time this thing does not manifest in the word and deed of the Muslim, his Islam cannot become perfect. Fear of God teaches him temperance, inclines towards the good deeds and takes away from the bad acts.

It is 194th verse of Surah Al-Baqarah. We have recited ‘14’ times about Fear of God (Taqwa) up to this verse, particularly after the command about worship, after the remembrance of the Children of Israel, after the mention of the principles of the code of morality, after the command regarding retaliation, after the sanction of bequest and after the order of a fast. (Taqwa) has been signified as ‘intended’ and ‘required’ by the mankind to be adopted at every place.

Whether it is being stated about lawful and unlawful in the Holy Qur’an, discussing the matters of marriage and divorce, describing the laws of property and wealth of the orphans and the poor, debating about the distribution of heritage and bequest, clearing the principles of association and mutual social intercourse or enlightening on the matters of slaughter and strive, everywhere, It shall teach the lesson of Taqwa (God fearing) and shall inform certain about its importance, utmost why?

The mankind is puppet of passions, slave of feelings and servant of perceptions. At the time of doing every work, he remains under its impression. He drops down for unjust instead of remaining on temperance and justice. Leaving the level of Just brings him unto the cruelty, violation of right, injustice and oppression. These all things are at very low level of a Muslim, so it is necessary that whether he is earnest in any field of life, he should not give up temperance from his hand.

This lesson is taught to keep every individual on such level that he should keep in view the Existence of God Almighty, His commands, and attendance in His Court. He should consider that the entire worldly property and valuables, respect and fame are casual. Real thing is Success in the Court of Allah Almighty. So, if any person has to suffer even some loss casually due to liking the justice, he should bear it because God Almighty helps only those people who fear Him and it is clear that the individual who has been provided Support by Allah Almighty, there is none lucky, obedient and successful person more than him.
