Hadith on Curses: Avoid Inviting Allah’s Wrath and Punishment

📖Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1976
‘Samurah bin Jundab narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “Do not curse yourselves with Allah’s curse, nor with His anger, nor with the Fire.”

  • This hadith, recorded in Jami` at-Tirmidhi, is a reminder from the Prophet Muhammad to his followers to be careful with their words and actions. The phrase “Do not curse yourselves with Allah’s curse” means that one should not invite the wrath and punishment of Allah (God) upon themselves by engaging in behavior that goes against His teachings and commandments. Likewise, “nor with His anger” means that one should avoid doing anything that would anger Allah and incur His wrath. This includes both actions and words that are harmful, disrespectful, or disobedient.  Finally, “nor with the Fire” refers to the punishment of Hellfire, which is reserved for those who persist in disobeying Allah and reject His guidance. The Prophet is reminding his followers to be mindful of their actions and to strive to avoid anything that could lead them to such a fate.
