Safety from the Wrath of Allāh


Abū Ja‘far Al-Bāqir رحمه الله said:

“There were two guarantees from the punishment of Allāh, and one of them has been rescinded; it was Rasūlullāh ﷺ, as for the other, it is istighfār (seeking forgiveness), so hold fast to it, for Allāh عز وجل says:

‘And Allāh was not to send punishment upon them while you [O Prophet] were in their midst; nor would Allāh send punishment upon them while they are seeking forgiveness[1].’”[2]

[1] (8:34)

[2] Mirqāt al-Mafātīḥ

ذكره القاري في المرقاة قال: قال أبو جعفر الباقر رحمه الله: "كان في الأرض أمانان من عذاب الله، وقد رُفع أحدهما، وهو رسول الله ﷺ، وأمّا الأمان الباقي، فالاستغفار، فتمَسَّكوا به، فالله جلّ وعلا يقول: وَمَا كَانَ اللّهُ لِيُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَأَنتَ فِيهِمْ وَمَا كَانَ اللّهُ مُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَهُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ
