How to secure ourselves in the holiday

The festive/holiday season sees an increase in temptation and fitnah, a time when people lose themselves, in many different ways.

 

In a narration in Sunan Tirmidhi, a Sahabi asked Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallm) what is salvation?

In response, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) provided the formula for salvation.

 

عَنْ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ قَالَ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ مَا النَّجَاةُ قَالَ أَمْسِكْ عَلَيْكَ لِسَانَكَ وَلْيَسَعْكَ بَيْتُكَ وَابْكِ عَلَى خَطِيئَتِكَ

Sayyiduna ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Amir (radiyallahu’anu) said: I asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallm) what is [the formula for] salvation?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallm) replied:

  1. Control your tongue
  2. Remain in your home
  3. Cry over your sins
