Why is this thing running and making an error?

So basically I have a if statement and when the thing I’m checking for isnt there then it makes an error.

		if part.Parent:FindFirstChild('Humanoid') then -- this is where it is erroring
			print('This is a hum')
			local hum = part.Parent:FindFirstChild('Humanoid')

The error I get is the standard

ServerScriptService.Attacks.EffectsModule:20: attempt to index nil with 'FindFirstChild'

I am not sure what the rest of your script looks like, but the error is saying that the part’s parent is nil.

part.Parent == nil -- That is what the error is telling you.

I suggest that you check the validity of the part’s parent and the validity of the part before continuing.
