Excerpt from Ibrahim Dewla’s speeches.

Allah has invited us to be in state of submission till death.

“O you who have believed, fear Allah as He should be feared and do not die except as Muslims [in submission to Him]”. (3:102)

Keep obeying and die in obedience. Till death everything is a trust. After death, there is accountability. Life, eyes, ears, wealth everything is a trust.

Per Imam Ghazali رحمة الله عليه, children are also a trust. Child Allah has given you is a trust. They be guided so they are on right path not lost. So they don’t cause you misfortune.

Or else children would be tribulation and wealth will be punishment. What will wealth be? It will be punishment and children will be an affliction. Prophet (saw) prayed:

“Oh Allah, I seek refuge in you from every wealth that will be a punishment and from every child that will be harmful”.

(Allahuma inni Aadhubiki min kuli maalin ya kunu alaiya adhaba wa min kuli waladin ya kono alaiya wabala)

[Tabarani 1339]

Wealth and children are great blessings. But they can be tribulation and punishment as well.
