From the Benefits of Taqwah: ‘Preservation of One’s Offspring after his Death’

On the authority of Abu Dharr and Mu’aadh bin Jabal, may Allaah be pleased with them both, narrated that the Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him, stated: “Observe taqwah of Allaah wherever you may be…” [At-Tirmidhi]

[It comes in the book "Al-Jaami' fee Sharhil Arba'een An-Nawawiyyah" a mention of the benefits of Taqwah and here is one of them.]

’Preservation of One’s Offspring after his Death’

Allaah, the Most High, says:

And let those (executors and guardians) have the same fear in their minds as they would have for their own children, if they had left weak offspring behind. So let them fear Allah and speak right words.”
[4:9]


Thus, whoever desires that his family be preserved after he is gone let him fear Allaah (during his life) so that Allaah will preserve them after him and cover them with His attention and mercy.

As Allaah mentions:

And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the town; and there was under it a treasure belonging to them; and their father was a righteous man, and your Lord intended that they should attain their age of full strength and take out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord.”
[18:82]

Muhammad bin Al-Munkadir, may Allaah have mercy upon him, stated:

Indeed Allaah will preserve a man’s children, the children of his children, his village/town that he is in and the dwelling places around it, i.e. his village/town, all because of his righteousness. Therefore they will continue to be in the preservation and protection of Allaah.”

Sa’eed bin Al-Musayyib, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said to his son:

“Oh dear son, verily I increase in my prayers for you hoping that Allaah will preserve you by this action of mine. And he recited the verse,

“And their father was a righteous man.”
[18:82]
