وقد قيل: إن عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه، سأل أبيّ بن كعب عن التقوى، فقال له: أما سلكت طريقًا ذا شوك؟ قال: بلى قال: فما عملت؟ قال: شمرت واجتهدت، قال: فذلك التقوى

‎`Umar bin Al-Khattab رضي الله عنه asked Ubayy bin Ka`b رضي الله عنه about Taqwa. Ubayy said, “Have you ever walked on a path that has thorns on it” `Umar said, “Yes.” Ubayy said, “What did you do then” He said, “I rolled up my sleeves and struggled.” Ubayy said, “That is Taqwa.”
