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 wa sallam) what is salvation?

In response, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) 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 wa sallam) what is [the formula for] salvation?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied:

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