Fear only God.
God in his word in the Koran and Hadith (Sunnah) tells man that the only thing to be afraid of mankind is God who created the Heavens and the earth and all creatures.
Human (believers) Allah also warned that the number one enemy of man is the devil (Satan) and those who do shirk and the pagans.
But the man who did this pagan polytheism and humans (Muslims / faith) was ordered to tell them appropriate guidance of the Qur'an and Sunnah so that they repent, do not continue doing shirk (associating partners with God) and leave immediately disbelief and faith in God.
If they are infidels and do shirk it hostile to Muslims and persecute (combat) Muslims, of course, Muslims are obliged to defend themselves by doing fisabilillah jihad (fighting in the way of Allah) as did the Prophet Muhammad in Badr and Uhud warbecome .
If we did not have enough firepower and sophisticated, of course we have to pray to God for help to God, as God did in the battle of Badr, God sends angels to fight the enemies of the Prophet Muhammad.
History records, as told Allah in the Qur'an, the enemies of the believers always pagans (people do shirk) and a nation that always kill and will kill the messengers of God, starting from the time of Noah, Moses (pharaoh and his army), the Jews who wanted to kill Rasul (Prophet Isa), as well as other hostile infidels Muslims. Hostility was all a test from Allah, if we include those who are patient, or really only afraid of God. And tested whether we help our brothers who are now become a victims (dizolimi) enemies of Islam.

FEAR TO GOD SWT AND EFFECT IN THE LIFE OF A MUSLIM
Shaykh Dr. Ali al-Hudzaifi Hafizhahullah
The practice of heart, a matter of great and glorious. Merit and sin is greater than the deeds of limbs, because the movement of the limbs just follow your heart. Therefore, it is said, "The heart is the ruler of the limbs and other body members are men."
Among the practice of heart that encourage doing good deeds and that can foster a sense of love to the end, which can be distanced from bad deeds and can lead to the attitude of asceticism towards the world and can curb lust is Khauf (fear) and the king '(hope) to Allah Almighty.
Khauf (fear) to Allah Almighty will guide the heart to all the goodness and prevent him from all evil, while the king 'drove him win the pleasure and reward of Allah Almighty, breathed passion to do great deeds.
Fear of Allah Almighty is one branch of monotheism must be devoted only to Allah Almighty. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala ordered the man to fear Him and prohibit fear besides Him. Allah Almighty says:
إنما ذلكم الشيطان يخوف أولياءه فلا تخافوهم وخافون إن كنتم مؤمنين
Indeed, they were nothing but the devil scare (you) with his friends (the idolaters of Quraysh), therefore do not fear them, but fear Me, if you are really believers [Ali Imran / 3: 175]
Allah Almighty also says:
فلا تخشوا الناس واخشون ولا تشتروا بآياتي ثمنا قليلا
Therefore do not be afraid to humans, (but) fear Me. And do not exchange My verses with a little price. [al-Maidah / 5: 44]
What is meant by fear are: anxiety, depressed, and worried exposed torment of Allah Almighty as a result of unlawful acts or abandon the obligations, also worried that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala did not receive shalihnya practice. With this fear, the soul will be dispelled from the things forbidden and rushed to do good.
The person who has fear as mentioned above, was promised by Allah Almighty rewards are great in many verses. Among them the word of Allah Almighty:
ولمن خاف مقام ربه جنتان )46( فبأي آلاء ربكما تكذبان )47( ذواتا أفنان
People who are afraid of Allâh will get two paradise. Rabb favors then you which one you deny? Both heaven that has trees and fruits [ar-Rahman / 55: 46-48]
Allah Almighty to preach that those who fear Him, will be saved from the things he does not like, given the adequacy and given a nice ending.
If we study the lives of the scholars of the Salaf, we find the fear of Allah Almighty have dominated their hearts. This encourages them to continue to improve practice and expect the grace of Allah Almighty. Therefore, the circumstances of their lives has always been good, they are also good end of life as well as practice their full blessing.
Praiseworthy fear is fear that drives the good deeds, blocking of unlawful acts. If the fear that has exceeded that limit, it will cause the nature despair of the mercy of Allah Almighty.
Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali rahimahullah said, "Levels of fear that must have a servant is the size of a fear that can be pushed to do things that fardhu and away from the forbidden. If more than levels above so that it can arouse passionate soul to do nafilah (practice circumcision) and obedience, avoid the makruh, and not excessive in things permissible, then it's all a commendable virtue. But if the fear it more than anything above that can cause illness, death or permanent anxiety that cut all types of business, then such fear is not commendable. "
That fear must be owned by a Muslim while living her life in this world. And what about the king '?
The king 'is the ambition to achieve the reward of Allah in return for good deeds he had done. So the king requirement 'is doing good deeds, leave matters that are forbidden or repent of it. As for leaving the obligation, to obey the desires and hopes to Allah Almighty, then it is not the king 'but only felt safe from the treason of Allah Almighty, whereas Allah Almighty says:
أفأمنوا مكر الله فلا يأمن مكر الله إلا القوم الخاسرون
Do they feel safe from the torment of Allah (the unexpected)? It is not secure from Allah except treason oranag the losers [al-A'raf / 7: 99]
Allah Almighty explains that the king 'was there after performing good deeds, without deeds, the king' does not exist. Allah Almighty says:
إن الذين يتلون كتاب الله وأقاموا الصلاة وأنفقوا مما رزقناهم سرا وعلانية يرجون تجارة لن تبور
Indeed, those who read the Book of Allah, establish regular prayer, and spend in what We have given them secretly or openly, they're the ones who are expecting commerce that never goes out. [Fatir / 35: 29]
Allah Almighty also says:
إن الذين آمنوا والذين هاجروا وجاهدوا في سبيل الله أولئك يرجون رحمت الله والله غفور رحيم
Surely those who believe, who emigrate and strive in the way of Allah, they are the ones who expect the grace of Allah, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. [al-Baqarah / 2: 218]
Raja 'as well as al-Khauf is the heart of worship that should not be turned away to other than Allah Almighty. if there are memalingkannya to other than Allah Almighty, then he has fallen into a puddle of shirk.
And the king 'is the nearest facility to draw closer to Allah Almighty. In a hadith Qudsi explained that Allah Almighty says:
أنا عند ظن عبدي بي وأنا معه إذا ذكرني
I am as My servant alleged to Me. And I was with him when he remembers my
Which must be done by a Muslim is to combine inter Khauf and the king '. Both should be balanced. That is the condition of the Prophet and Messenger and the Muslims. Allah Almighty says:
تتجافى جنوبهم عن المضاجع يدعون ربهم خوفا وطمعا ومما رزقناهم ينفقون
Hull they are far from the bed and they always prayed to his Lord with fear and hope, and they spend provision that we provide. [as-Sajadah / 32: 16]
When a Muslim knows coverage grace of Allah Almighty, generosity him, ease him into giving forgiveness to the sins are great, the breadth of his heaven and the amount of the reward of charity shalihnya, his soul will be relieved, calm, and he will continue to constantly optimistic and ambitious to achieve what is there beside Allah Almighty. Instead, when he found out how heavy the punishment of Allah, torment him very hard, his calculations were so observant, the Day of Judgment and Hell is so horrible, as well as various torment in the hereafter, then his soul will be prevented, unfettered, always vigilant and fearful for violation.
By because it, in the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah radi anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said:
لو يعلم المؤمن ما عند الله من العقوبة, ما طمع بجنته أحد, ولو يعلم الكافر ما عند الله من الرحمة, ما قنط من جنته أحد
Suppose a believer know the torment on the side of Allah, surely no one who would be too ambitious to reach his paradise. And if the unbelievers know the compassion of Allah, surely no one would despair of his reach heaven
In the book Madârijus Salikin, Imam Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullah said, "The heart (of man) on his way to Allah Almighty is like a bird, which is where the love of Allah as the head, while the al-Khauf (fear) and the king 'is two wings. If the head and two healthy wings, he will fly good. However, if the head is lost then he would die, and if he lost both wings then he will fall prey to the hunter or falcon. "
May Allah Almighty grant us and all the Muslims the sense of what we need in real life that the world is full of trickery.
al-Khauf, namely the fear of the wrath and punishment of Allah Almighty. Think it should be strengthened in us, when we are in a healthy condition. Especially in this era, in which the world has deceive most people with a false beauty, causing them to neglect of dhikrullah that ultimately led to their hearts become hard, harder than stone mountain though. Na'udzubillah.
But the king 'ie hope or ambition to achieve the reward of Allah Almighty also promised not to disappear from our hearts, that we do not despair of the mercy of Allah Almighty.
al-Khauf requires a Muslim to rush anything implement the rights of Allah Almighty and keep him away from neglect. The flavor will also be prevented from doing menzhalimi others and motivated to be trustworthy, honest, fair and not wasting the rights of others.
Fear embedded in this heart also will save him from the deceit of the world, so he was not washed away lust that is forbidden, because he is always alert to the world.
Dear Allah! Anugerahkanlah us fear that could hinder us from immoral acts; Anugerahkanlah to our obedience that could lead us to heaven thy; And anugerahkanlah to the confidence with which we feel the calamities the world they may be light.
