It is not difficult to understand that we help and protect those we love, more than others. Even though we are helpful to a stranger in need. It is humanly love, that it hurts us more if someone cause pain to people or creatures who are close to us.
Imagine how much it angers Allah, when someone He loves, is caused pain by people. The honor of a person that is close to Allah is more important to Allah than the qaaba itself. Is it possible for anyone to understand how angry Allah becomes, when someone tries to dis-honor such a person, again and again.
It is not we who decide who Allah will honor. He doesn’t look at our possesions, he looks at our sincerity, intention and quality of our deeds according to our capability. No matter how much someone tries to dis-honor someone, if Allah honors him, he will be honoured. Allah honours those who humble themselves for Him.
May Allah lead you to repentence, long before you are seized by the punishments, so that you are able to decrease it or be saved from it. Aameen.
