As Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

Parable using Fire

Abu Hurayrah (Radhi Allahu Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said,

My example and the example of you is like that of a person who lit a fire. When the fire illuminated his surroundings, butterflies and insects started falling into it, as they usually do, and he started swatting at them to prevent them from falling; but they overwhelmed him and kept falling into the fire. This is the parable of me and you, I am holding you by the waist trying to save you from the Fire, saying, "Go away from the Fire,'' yet you overwhelm me and fall into it.

(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

We seek refuge with Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala from Hell-fire Ameen!
