So one of the most beautiful definitions of Taqwa is by Adam Nebuta Article of the line who summarize it as follows. He says, A duck will hopefully minute Jamie LGD, when I'm going to be Tenzin, or whether Bill Curry will do more.

Those are the people of Taqwa May Allah as it didn't make you and die from them.
