“What is the way to gain salvation (from fitnahs)?” This was the very concise question that Sayyiduna ‘Uqbah bin ‘Aamir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) posed to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Subhaanallah! This was the main concern of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) - how to gain salvation from the fitnahs (evil and mischief) of this world as well as the torments of the Hereafter. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) gave a most concise reply to the concise question. He said: “Guard your tongue, let your house be sufficient for you and cry over your sins”. (Tirmizi #2406). This is an all time remedy for remaining safe from the fitnahs of this world and the next.
