I always lock my doors before going outside . I believe all of us do the same to protect our valuable properties from thieves . We have seen people with more than 3 locks on the door and some also have a specialized integrated alarm system against forceful entry ! Some also have 24 hours live monitoring built in the house .
It is quite pathetic when we use so many locks in order to safeguard some belongings . But , we have little or no locks at all in ourselves to safeguard our iman from shaitan and evils of this world . This iman , which is more precious than any material thing , needs more protection than our belongings .
Iman enters into us in four ways , unfortunately it leaves through the same ways . They are our ears , eyes , tounges , and our hearts . We should make sure that we use them in a way that ALLAH is pleased .
May ALLAH bless us and may we die with iman in ourselves . In sha ALLAH , ameen . Assalamu'alaikum :)
