Fear of Allaah

He Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam would recite a Verse of the Qur’an and stay indoors for days, receiving people who would  come to visit him, because of his excessive fear of Allah;  he was extremely mindful of  the punishment of Allah ‘azza wa jal; he even had two black lines which marked the lines of his tears.
