Answer:

 

How to fear Allah?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

My dear and beloved brother in Islam, it is indeed good that your soul urges you to worry about your prayers, especially at an age when your youth is in its absolute prime and the temptations of the world are galore! May Allah Subhanah increase your and our consciousness of Him, and bestow upon you and us the wisdom to fulfill the duties which He has laid upon us, and give you and us the courage to abstain from everything which is Displeasing to Him.

 

Your Question: I didnt have the feeling to pray because scare to Allah. How could i have the feeling to pray to Allah and and to do anything because of Allah. 

Unlike ones natural instinct and desire for the love of the accumulation of wealth, or attraction to women, or the love of children, or love of life and this transitory worldto fear, worship and do deeds only for the sake and Pleasure of Allah is something which one needs to choose to strive and develop and train ones soul to do; and therein lies the test of life which has been ordained and decreed by Allah Subhanah for mankind:

Who amongst mankind controls his soul towards the temptations of this short and transient world in preference for His Promises and Rewards of the eternal Gardens of Bliss in the Everlasting life of the Hereafter?

 

The ones who choose to fear Allah, control their souls from lower desires, and of their own choice submit their will to the Will of their Lord, will pass the test ordained by their Lord; and the ones who choose to run after the transient and temporary luxuries and pleasures of this world and refuse to submit their will to the Will of their Creator will miserably fail their ordained test of life.


 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 79 Surah Naziat verses 34-41:

34 Therefore when there comes the Great Overwhelming (Event, ie: The Day of Judgment!)

35 The Day when Man shall remember (all) that he strove for

36 And Hell-Fire shall be placed in full view for (all) to see

37 Then for such as had transgressed all bounds

38 And had preferred the life of this world

39 Their Abode will be Hell-Fire;

40 And for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord's (tribunal) and had restrained (their) soul from Lower Desires

41 Their Abode will be the Garden.

 

Your Question: How could i have the feeling to pray to Allah and and to do anything because of Allah. 

To develop this feeling, the absolute first thing one needs to do is to recognize who exactly is his Lord and Creator, why has He created everything in existence, why has He created you on this earth, what deeds are Pleasing to Him, what deeds bring about His Wrath and Anger, what exactly are His Rewards promised for His righteous and obedient slaves, and what punishments await those who deny and disobey Him?

 

The Lord Creator is not only All-Mighty and All-Powerful, He is also The Most Merciful, and The All-Wise! He did not create man and leave him alone to find out the answers to these questions by themselves, but in His Supreme, Sublime, and Infinite Mercy, He Himself revealed the answers to all these questions in His Glorious Book of Guidance, The Al-Quran!

 

Thus the absolute best way to recognize ones Lord Creator and the substance of ones short test of life in this transient world is to read, understand, obey, follow and completely submit to the Blessed and Noble Message revealed for our guidance by our Lord Most Merciful, Most Gracious.

 

Once you determine and submit to the guidance of the Glorious Quran, all the questions regarding faith and the substance of the test of life will be answered in detail and in a crystal-clear format which only behoves the Lord All-Knowing, All-Wise. Once you recognize the Lord Who created you, and the reason for your existence, and once you submit your will to His Will in return for His Promised Everlasting and Eternal Gardens of Paradise in the life of the Hereafter; your whole life will become a meaningful strive towards a beautiful mission called Paradise!

 

And once you make up your mind to tread the path that would earn you the eternal and everlasting Rewards of Paradise, the world with all its luxuries, pleasures, and temptations will look worthless and insignificant; and all your striving will be towards that Inevitable Reality of the Hereafter.

 

This state of consciousness of standing in the Presence of the Majestic and Supreme Lord One Inevitable Day is what Allah calls taqwa or piety in His Quran; and it is this taqwa which will inspire you all your life towards doing deeds that would earn you the Eternal Pleasure and Good Will of your Lord, and it is this same taqwa which will inspire you to abstain from doing anything which would bring about His Unbearable Wrath and Anger.

 

Thus, in conclusion, my dear and beloved brother in Islam, I remind you as I remind myself, the absolute best way to bring about this reformation in our hearts to get close to the Remembrance of our Lord Who Created us; and the best way to Remember our Lord is to read, understand, obey, follow and completely submit ourselves to His Glorious Message which He Himself revealed for our guidance, The One and Only Glorious and Noble Quran!

 

Allah is our witness, one who sincerely submits himself to the Glorious Message of their Lord will find that his whole life will become a life spent in the worship and praise of His Lord; his prayers, his fasts, his zakat, his Hajj, his work, his relationship with fellow man, in fact, his every single deed will be aligned to earn the Pleasure and Good Will of His Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

 

May Allah Subhanah bless you and us, have mercy on you and us, and bestow upon you and us and all the believers the wisdom and the courage to choose and prefer this Straight Path of Rigtheousness that leads to the Mercy and Rewards of our Lord, and abstain from all deeds that lead to His Anger and His Wrath. Ameen.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
