Save Yourself and Your Family from Fire

Save Yourself and Your Family from Fire

  • O ye who believe! Save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who flinch not (from executing) the Commands they receive from God, but do (precisely) what they are commanded. [Holy Quran: Tahrim 66: 6]

  • The most important responsibility is earning Halal and feeding Halal for Family. If you fail then yes………… think of eternal life “Hereafter” Earn Halal, Eat Halam and Feed Halal

  • When I see and go deeper and deeper into the matter and issues we are facing, it is becoming more and clears to me Haram is one of the prime reason for the problems, our Dua’s not answered and we have all types of problems. Because society stopped thinking Haram as Haram, they become part of life.


  • Major Haram( Prohibited) enters into our life

  • 1. Riba – Usury – Modern day bank interest is one of the greatest haram causing the problem. o The Punishment for Dealing with Riba (Interest and Usury) - Quran Verse 2:275 (Chapter Al-Baqara) o “Those who devour usury will not stand except as stand one whom the Evil one by his touch hath driven to madness. That is because they say: “Trade is like usury,” but God hath permitted trade and forbidden usury. Those who after receiving direction from their Lord, desist, shall be pardoned for the past; their case is for God (to judge); but those who repeat (the offence) are companions of the Fire: They will abide therein (for ever).” o Ibn Majah recorded that Abu Hurayrah said that the Messenger of Allah said, (Riba is seventy types, the least of which is equal to one having sexual intercourse with his mother.) o The Two Sahihs recorded that the Messenger of Allah said, `Ali and Ibn Mas`ud narrated that the Messenger of Allah said, (May Allah curse whoever consumes Riba, whoever pays Riba, the two who are witnesses to it, and the scribe who records it.)

  • 2. Allah Does Not Bless Riba

  • (276. Allah will destroy Riba and will give increase for Sadaqat. And Allah likes not the disbelievers, sinners.) (277. Truly, those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and perform the Salah and give Zakah, they will have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.) o Allah states that He destroys Riba, either by removing this money from those who eat it, or by depriving them of the blessing, and thus the benefit of their money. Because of their Riba, Allah will torment them in this life and punish them for it on the Day of Resurrection. Allah said, o On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: The Messenger of Allah said: “Allah the Almighty is good and accepts only that which is good. Allah has commanded the Faithful to do that which He commanded the Messengers, and the Almighty has said: “O ye Messengers! Eat of the good things, and do right..” (Quran 23:51). And Allah the Almighty has said: “O ye who believe! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you..” (2:172). Then he mentioned [the case of] a man who, having journeyed far, is disheveled and dusty and who spreads out his hands to the sky [saying]: O Lord! O Lord!-while his food is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothing unlawful, and he is nourished unlawfully, so how can he be answered!” (Muslim).
