To Every Father

Allah Ta'ala says:

"O Believers! Save yourselves and your families (wife, children etc.) from a fire whose fuel is men and stones, over which are appointed stern and severe angels, who do not disobey Allah in that which He has commanded them and they do (precisely) what they have been commanded." (Surah At-Tahreem: Ayat 6)

Saiyidina Ali ibn Abi Talib RA says that - 'save your families' means that you should discipline them and give them proper Islamic education.

Qatadah RA says that 'save your families' means that you should command them with the obedience of Allah Ta'aala and prevent them from his disobedience.

O Compassionate Father!

What practical action will you take if it is said to you:

"If you do not take correct care and repair the huge building you own, it will collapse."

Definitely you will make every possible effort to save it from collapsing.

So what practical efforts are you making with regard to your beloved daughter whom Allah Ta'ala has commanded you to save from the Fire of Jahannam?

Are you preparing her to fall into the Fire of Jahannam or are you preparing her to enter Paradise? O Compassionate Father!

These young girls who are deprived of modesty, who display arrogance toward the commands of Allah Ta'ala, we see and hear them - they have not fallen from the sky nor emerged from beneath the earth - they come out from your home and the home of your Muslim brother.

Hence, My Beloved Brother! Fear Allah and take care of your beloved daughter more than your worldly matters.

Do not become from amongst those with regard to whom Rasulullah SAW said:

"A cuckold will not enter Jannah."
(Definition of cuckold in dictionary: 'the husband of an unfaithful wife'.)

The Sahabah Radhiallahu anhum asked:

"Ya Rasulullah! Who is a cuckold?"

Rasulullah SAW replied:

"He who does not protect his Mahram women."

In one narration Rasulullah SAW is reported to have said:

"A cuckold is happy with the evil in his family." (Musnad Ahmad)
