Protection from Hell


Allah the Exalted said:

﴿ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ﴾

[which means] “O you who believed, protect yourselves and your families from a fire; its fuel is people and stones. In it are Angels who are merciless and powerful, they do not disobey Allah in what He Ordered them, and they do what they are ordered to do.

It came in the interpretation of this verse that Allah Orders the believers to protect themselves and their families from Hell, whose fuel is people and stones, by learning the religious matters and teaching their families that, meaning knowing what Allah Made obligatory to do and to avoid (i.e., the obligations and the prohibitions).  This is so that one would not fall into likening Allah to the creation, blasphemy and misguidance; for the worship of the one who likens Allah to anything would not be valid, because he worshipped something he imagined in his imagination, and by his delusion he was deluded.  Abu Hamid Al-Ghazaliyy said, “The worship is not valid except after knowing the Worshipped.”
