Save yourselves and your families
Some narrations reported from the Sahaba in explanation of what it means to protect oneself and one’s family as mentioned in Al-Tahrîm verse 6:
O you who believe! Protect yourselves and your families against a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels, stern and severe, and who disobey not the commands they receive from Allâh, but do that which they are commanded. [66:6]
· ‘Alî b. Abî Tâlib – Allah be pleased with him:
Discipline them, teach them.
· Ibn ‘Abbâs – Allah be pleased with them:
Stay obedient to Allâh, stay away from disobeying Allâh and command your families to remember Allâh, and He will save you from the Fire.
