what is taqwa

peace… i forgot to post this earlier, but this is a pretty neat definition of taqwa that was told during the khutbah this week.

al-taqwa hiya al-‘7awf min al-jaleel, wal 3amalu bil tanzeel, wal rida bil qaleel, wal isti3dad leyawm al-ra7eel.

approximately, this means… taqwa is the fear of the mighty, and following the revelation, and being content with what is little, and preparing for the day of departure.

i should try to type that in arabic just to see if wp supports it at some point.
