Al-Fatihah: 3 Components of Your Relation with Allah

What is the correct perspective on humans relation with Allah?

For some religions the main characteristic they attribute to their god is an angry vengeful jealous god.

You must appease him or else his wrath will be upon you.

On the other side of the spectrum you have certain religions that only focus on love and mercy and claim that “god is love”. With such beliefs, they create great injustices to themselves and those around them having no fear of accountability.

Relation with Allah: How Islam Is Different

Unlike other religions, in Islam we worship Allah based upon three motivational factors of Love, Hope and Fear.

In this special series episode of Tafsir of Surat Al-Fatihah, Sheikh Dr. Yasir Qadhi discusses the three motivational factors of worship; namely Love, Hope & Fear.

The video also touches on theological concepts of Monotheism, Messengers and the Day of Judgement.
