Branch Offices

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

All Branch offices have a connection with the Head Office. In a similar vein, all the branch offices of sins have their connection with the Head Office of Jahannum.

The Fire of Jahannum is the Head Office, and the areas and deeds of disobedience are the Branch Offices. Allah Ta’ala inflicts some of that fire which is burning in Hell into the heart and life of a person, in this world, when he indulges in sins. Restlessness and misery burns the heart to such a degree that the likeness is that of those who will enter Jahannum.

Allah Ta’ala describes this condition :
“... Who will enter the great fire in which he will then neither die nor live (a life of comfort).”
[Surah Al-A’la : 12/13]

Similarly, the branch offices of good deeds have their connection with the Head Office of Jannah. 
The person who engages in good deeds will experience within his heart and life, 
a beautiful, fresh garden.
