Taqwa is the full knowledge that at any moment of your life Allah can transfer you in an instant to the depths of the Hellfire, or the highest places of Paradise. It is both a feeling of insecurity in this life and hope, knowing that the life of this world is an illusion that can disappear at any moment. That it is not real. That at any moment Allah can unplug our world, He can shut down the illusion of dunya, and this life of this world that seems so real right now will clear away like smoke and we will find that we have been right in front of Allah all our lives, we just couldn't see it. We were ignorant. We were deluded. We were asleep.
