those who fear Him an escape from the difficulties of the Dunya as

safety from the afflictions of the Dunya and the Hereafter—especially
those to be experienced on the Day of Judgment.

Whoever suffers any distress should fear Allah in all affairs until
attaining solace and facility. Hence, taqwaa is the door to alleviation
from the plight of hardships, the sorrows of poverty, the grief of
oppression, the anxieties of sin and transgression, as well as the
torment of shirk and disbelief.
