2- Takwa

3- Ibadah

4- Sufi

    Fitna = tumult, discord, dissent etc.

    Taqwa = piety

    Ibadah = literally, it means slavery, but, in the context in which it is used, it usually means worship, obedience, submission, humility etc

    Sufi = literally "of the wool" it is the name given to the practitioner of tawassuf or Mysticism.

    LOL, Google can be rather overwhelming, I guess. Didn't know that you could get that kind of thing from there.

    Hope you don't mind the over simplification in my answer.
