The Shield from Hellfire

Your shield from hellfire is remembrance of Allah. The more you remember Allah, the more you prevent yourself from sins. Because when you about to do a sin, you remember Him!

Abu Hurairah reported, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said,

خُذُوا جُنَّتَكُمْ قَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَمِنْ عَدُوٍّ قَدْ حَضَرَ قَالَ لا وَلَكِنْ جُنَّتُكُمْ مِنَ النَّارِ قَوْلُ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَلا إِلَهَ إِلا اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ فَإِنَّهُنَّ يَأْتِينَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مُجَنِّبَاتٍ وَمُعَقِّبَاتٍ وَهُنَّ الْبَاقِيَاتُ الصَّالِحَاتُ

“Take up your shields”. They said, “O Messenger of Allah, is the enemy present? The Prophet ﷺ said, “No, rather your shields from the Hellfire are to declare the glory of Allah, the praise of Allah. There is no God but Allah. And Allah is the greatest. Verily, they will come on the Day of Resurrection as saviors. And guardian angels. And they are ‘righteous deeds everlasting” (18:46)”
