What Will the People Say?




وَتَخْشَى النَّاسَ وَاللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخْشَاهُ


“…Do you fear the people while Allah has more right that you fear Him?...”

(Surah Al-Ahzab 33:37)



Explanation:



One of the most common excuses for committing sins or leaving out good deeds is “what will the people say?” We have become so culturally and socially driven that the opinions of people matter more to some of us than the obedience of Allah.

As believers however, it would be more appropriate to ask ourselves, “What will Allah say?”

Fearing people more than Allah is a form of Shirk in Ibadah (polytheism in worship). While it is not, in itself, severe enough to take a person out of the fold of Islam, it is a major sin which can lead down the path to apostasy.

As believers, we need to be strong and firm, always doing the right thing with complete trust in Allah, knowing that if He is protecting us, nobody can harm us. With this belief, we can stop worrying about what the people will say.
