It is recorded that once Allah Almighty revealed to Nabi Moosa – peace be upon him – 114,000 deep words of secrets in only three days. Among them was the following:
“O Moosa! Those who are pious and noble have never ever attained such closeness to Me except through their complete dislike and attraction for the world. In other words, among the noble attributes of a person is his complete non-interest in the world and everything worldly. No one has achieved such closeness to Me except through their act of refraining from those things which I have prohibited. In other words, this is when a person makes sure that he refrains from all those things which have been prohibited in Islam. As for those who have worshipped Me, they have never attained closeness to Me except through their tears which they have shed in fear of Me. In other words, one of the greatest form of Ibadah is to weep in fear of Allah.”
Nabi Moosa – peace be upon him – then asked Allah Almighty what he had in store for these people and what He had prepared for them.
Allah Almighty declared, “O Moosa! For those who refrain from that which I have prohibited, for them Jannah has become Halaal. They may live in Jannah wherever they please. As for the pious, I will allow them to enter Jannah without question and accountability. As for those who have wept in fear of Me, no one will reward them except Me.” (Al Qalyubi)
