Ramadhan desserts ( part 18)
ابو حنظلة محمد زهري
....... These verses also taught us indirectly that the closer we are to someone, the more we have to take care of our responsibilities towards them.
كلكم راع وكلكم مسئول عن رعيته، فالإمام راع ومسئول عن رعيته، والرجل راع في أهل بيته ومسئول عن رعتيه، والمرأة راعية في بيت زوجها ومسئولة عن رعيتها، والخادم راع في مال سيده ومسئول عن رعيته، وكلكم راع ومسئول عن رعيته.
Every1 is a leader and will be asked on his responsibility....
As a man we are responsible to ensure no only we give our family shelter, food etc but more importantly, have we taught our family the religion. Do we provide opportunities for our family to obtain knowledge and practice Deen ? Have we reminded them on their duties towards Allah and Rasullulah ? Do they know the Quran and diligent in their solat?
How about our parents? Have we fulfill our duty as a son? Have we gave them good service to them in their old age? Have we raised our voices or broke their hearts with our bad actions or insensitivity? When is the last time we call them? When is the last time we gave them a good hug or a kiss in the cheek, forehead or hands? Or say I love you to them?
Or to our brothers? Have we invite him towards maaruf and prevents him from munkar? Do we talk bad things or backbite him or slander him? Or even took his things without his permission? Do we help him when he is in need?
This for myself to ponder. May Allah swt save us all in the day of judgement where there is no shelter (shade) except from the shelter of Allah swt.
