Some of Islam haters accuse Islam as the religion of fear !
First of all thank u for thinking bad of us !
Second I will explain fear of God in a simple way to be understood quickly and easily !!
Fear of God is love of God …yes it means love and only love !!
I will give u a simple example :
When u fell in love with someone; u find urself begins to love the things he loves ..u find urself trying to be away from the things he does not like…ur r not losing ur identity of course…but u r trying to make him content !
I do the same with my God !
I know that God does not like cheating ,liers,alcohol drinking,stealing,killing innocent people ,injustice ….etc…
So i will avoid these bad deeds because i have fear inside myself that if I do these bad things my God will be discontent and of course i love him and i want him to be contented !
So fear equals love.
Islam is the religion of love and not hatered !
I hope that my message reached u !
Have a great day !
