Excerpts from ~ Ramadaan 1435 Programmes



عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ سَبْعَةٌ يُظِلُّهُمُ اللَّهُ فِي ظِلِّهِ يَوْمَ لاَ ظِلَّ إِلاَّ ظِلُّهُ الإِمَامُ الْعَادِلُ، وَشَابٌّ نَشَأَ فِي عِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِ، وَرَجُلٌ قَلْبُهُ مُعَلَّقٌ فِي الْمَسَاجِدِ، وَرَجُلاَنِ تَحَابَّا فِي اللَّهِ اجْتَمَعَا عَلَيْهِ وَتَفَرَّقَا عَلَيْهِ، وَرَجُلٌ طَلَبَتْهُ امْرَأَةٌ ذَاتُ مَنْصِبٍ وَجَمَالٍ فَقَالَ إِنِّي أَخَافُ اللَّهَ‏.‏ وَرَجُلٌ تَصَدَّقَ أَخْفَى حَتَّى لاَ تَعْلَمَ شِمَالُهُ مَا تُنْفِقُ يَمِينُهُ، وَرَجُلٌ ذَكَرَ اللَّهَ خَالِيًا فَفَاضَتْ عَيْنَاهُ ‏”‏‏.‏

Hazrat Abu Huraira RA narrates:

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, “Allah will give shade, to seven, on the Day when there will be no shade but His”. (These seven persons are) :

1. A just ruler.

2. A youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allah.

3. A man whose heart is attached to the Masaajid.

4. Two persons who love each other only for Allah’s sake and they meet and part in Allah’s love.

5. A man who refuses the invitation of a charming woman of noble birth (for illicit intercourse with her) and says: I fear Allah!

6. A man who gives charity so secretly that his left hand even, does not know what his right hand has given.

7. And a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes are then flooded with tears.”
