Reminder for myself from my Dhuha class :
“Oh you who believe! Save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who flinch not (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do (precisely) what they are commanded.” ~ QS At-Tahrim 66:6
– Make supplication for ourselves FIRST, before supplicating for others.
– Bring ourselves closer to Allah FIRST, before asking others to be closed to Allah. Always start the good deeds first.
