The fruits of taqwa [fear of Allah]

The fruits of taqwa [fear of Allah]

Due to the saying of Allaah, the Exalted:

And whosoever has taqwa of Allaah, and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. [Soorah at-Talaaq 65:2-3]

And also the saying of Allaah, the Exalted: 

And if the people of the towns had believed and had the Taqwa (piety), certainly, We should have opened for them blessings from the heaven and the earth, but they denied (the Messengers). So, We took them (with punishment) for what they used to earn. [Soorah al-A'raaf 07:96]

From the fruits of taqwa are removal from every difficulty, provision from where one would not imagine, opening up of blessings from the earth and the heaven.

Al-Hasan Al-Basri - Allah have mercy on him - said: 
The believer does the best deeds yet is most fearful [that his deeds will not be accepted]. If he were to spend a mountain of wealth [in charity], he would not feel sure [of the reward] until he sees it. 
The more righteous and pious he becomes, the more he fears.
But the hypocrite (munafiq) says, ‘There are so many people, I will be forgiven, no problem.’ So he does wrong and evil deeds, yet holds foolish wishes about Allah.
Al-Dhahabi, Siyar A’lam Al-Nubala` 4:586
