Humble Yourselves Before Allaah And Call Him With Hope And Fear – Dr Saleh As Saleh [Audio Clip]

Be in a state of humbleness/Calmness in Hope & fear While making Du’a

“Verily, they used to hasten on to do good deeds, and they used to call on Us with hope and fear, and used to humble themselves before Us”

[Aurah Al-Anbiyah 21:90, Muhsin Khan Translation]

The following is taken from Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Dar-us-salam Publication

﴿وَيَدْعُونَنَا رَغَباً وَرَهَباً﴾

(and they used to call on Us with hope and fear,)

Ath-Thawri said, “Hoping for that (reward) which is with Us and fearing that (punishment) which is with Us.”

﴿وَكَانُواْ لَنَا خـشِعِينَ﴾

(and they were Khashi`in before Us.)

Ali bin Abi Talhah reported from Ibn `Abbas that this means, sincerely believing in that which was revealed by Allah.

Mujahid said: “Truly believing.”

Abu Al-`Aliyah said: “Fearing.”

Abu Sinan said: “Khushu` means the fear which should never leave our hearts.”

It was also reported from Mujahid that the Khashi`in are those who are humble.”

Al-Hasan, Qatadah and Ad-Dahhak said, “The Khashi`in are those who humble themselves before Allah.”

All of these suggestions are close in meaning.
