Is this shirk

03 Sep 2018 Ref-No#: 946

Fearing someone as he fears Allaah or greater is shirk, is looking inside cars near your house because you think the enemy is inside one of them waiting to attack you shirk. The reason he looks inside these cars is to make sure nobody is there so he can safely leave the house and if someone is there he waits inside his house until that person in the car leaves.
