Jumaat Reminder :)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


"O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey Allah in what He commands them but do what they are commanded."

I was reading a FB post regarding one's different character when he is in the office / in the television and when he is at home. He can be super nice at the office but super rude at home etc.

After reading that, I remembered the above verse. I'm not sure why as it's not even related directly to the double character issue.

Anyhow, upon reading the above verse this time, I concluded two things from the above verse. I have emphasised my points in the above verse with bold and underline. (There are many other wisdom you can take from the above verse but two is enough for this post at this time :) ).

First Point:

In order to protect the one that you love, you must protect yourself first. Just like in an aeroplane, the safety requirement is that you have to put on the oxygen mask on yourself before you can put it on your child. 


Its not because you are more important than your child. Although it is a natural thing to prioritise your child, but you cannot effectively help your child if you can't breath yourself.

So follow the priority set by Allah. Protect yourself FIRST, then your family member.

Second Point:


Unlike some immoral enforcement  officers, Angels are pure and secured from temptation. 

Don't think you could buy or talk your way out of Hell through them.

And to save you the trouble of being in Hell in the first place, refer back to Point 1. Save yourself and then save your family from Hell. 

Only God knows best.

Blog adjourned.
