A narration regarding how to protect one’s family from Jahannam

Question

تلا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم هذه الآية “قوا أنفسكم وأهليكم نارا” فقالوا: يا رسول الله كيف نقي أهلنا نارا قال: تأمرونهم بما يحبه الله وتنهونهم عما يكره الله

 

Answer

‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has cited this narration and has referenced the narration to Ibn Marduyah, which is not available currently.

I have not come across the chain and can therefore not comment on the authenticity.

(Refer: Ad Durrul Manthur, Surah: At Tahrim, Verse: 6)

 

Translation

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) recited the Verse ‘Save yourselves and your families from the Fire.’ The Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) said: ‘O Rasulullah! How do we protect our families from the Fire?’ He replied, ‘Order them [to carry out those deeds] that please Allah and prohibit them from [carrying out deeds] that Allah dislikes.'”

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
