EMBARRASSING TO IMAGINE
FAILING THE WILL OF ALLAH
Your father expects things from you. You are afraid to fail him. Your mother expects other things. You are handicapped not to fail. Your sisters, your brothers! Your friends! Everyone. But all these you can perhaps forgo, but can you forgo Allah? I think the acutest embarrassment is in thinking that you might fail Allah.
It is not fear of hell, it is not fear of Fire that matters. It matters to feel that Allah gave us a challenge in life and we failed him. It would be acute shame to be there somewhere and to be told that you never did what was expected of you. And there is the ultimate matter, failing yourself.
