Commentary

The actual thing, which prevents from evil deeds, is fear of God Almighty. If the nourisher of a child lay down a Map of God’s Epithets in his mind from the beginning, then in the future life, this concept of Allah Almighty keeps the child saved from many awful habits and disgraceful sins. Perfect human nature claims that he should not misbehave with the person, who is his guardian and benefactor, and who treated him honorably. The child is always grateful to his mother and father, and as long as his age increases, his sense describes him continuously that they are his patrons. “Treating them well is my personal duty”.

Now, if the parents are such who train the child correctly, they can cause to understand the child thoroughly that “Actual Lord and Patron of the mankind is Allah Almighty. It is He, Who has put affection with His Mercy, in the hearts of parents, due to which, they nourish their child. Indeed, only He is the Protector, the Fulfiller of the necessities and the Savior at all dangerous occasions. Therefore, we should seek refuge every time in Him (God Almighty) only, because the parents can be separated, but Allah Almighty is every time with the mankind, He beholds him, is Redresser of his grievances, and helps him in calamities. So the human beings should be saved from wicked deeds and sins, because these are cause of God’s anger, and to displease own Lord is very bad.

If there is a fear of being entangled in any sin or evil, then one should call immediately to Allah Almighty for help. And he should beg before Him for refuge from the sins. Joseph (peace be upon him) was an intelligent person by birth, in addition, His Father was also a Prophet, Who used to teach him usually. When Joseph (peace be upon him) observed that He has been surrounded by mischief, it came out from His mouth immediately “I seek refuge in Allah (Ma-aazAllaah)”. And He (peace be upon him) supplicated heartily “My Lord! Save me from this sin. Allah Almighty revealed at once in his heart “she is wife of Aziz, who is my supporter. Committing such abject sin with his wife will be cause of his disgrace.

Joseph (peace be upon him) said to the woman: Aziz is my guardian. He has kept me comfortably. It would be a great violence, if I committed evil with you.
