10 Things That Can Save You from Hell Fire

What is ultimate success? The Qur’an gives a succinct answer for this question:

{Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing).} (Aal `Imran 3:185)

So, how to avert the hell fire? In this inspiring Khutbah, Dr. Yasir Qadhi comments on 10 ways mentioned by Imam Ibn Taymiyah that save the believer from Hell fire.

Some of these ways, such as repentance, seeking forgiveness and doing good deeds, are easy and at hand. You can practice them during your life.

However, if you fail to observe these voluntary savers; if you do not take necessary precautions to protect yourself from hellfire, you may end up going through undesirable, even painful situations, that are meant to cleanse you from your sins. Sickness, calamities in this life, punishment in grave and trials on the Day of Judgment are examples of such sin cleaners that Allah Almighty, out of His immense mercy, may expose you to remove your bad deeds that may end you up in hell fire.

This Khutbah is very beneficial and gives a high dose of needed spirituality; it is a much needed reminder before it is too late.
