عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ كَعْبٍ الْقُرَظِيِّ، حَدَّثَنِي مَنْ، سَمِعَ عَلِيَّ بْنَ أَبِي طَالِبٍ، يَقُولُ إِنَّا لَجُلُوسٌ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي الْمَسْجِدِ إِذْ طَلَعَ عَلَيْنَا مُصْعَبُ بْنُ عُمَيْرٍ مَا عَلَيْهِ إِلاَّ بُرْدَةٌ لَهُ مَرْقُوعَةٌ بِفَرْوٍ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم بَكَى لِلَّذِي كَانَ فِيهِ مِنَ النِّعْمَةِ وَالَّذِي هُوَ الْيَوْمَ فِيهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏“‏ كَيْفَ بِكُمْ إِذَا غَدَا أَحَدُكُمْ فِي حُلَّةٍ وَرَاحَ فِي حُلَّةٍ وَوُضِعَتْ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ صَحْفَةٌ وَرُفِعَتْ أُخْرَى وَسَتَرْتُمْ بُيُوتَكُمْ كَمَا تُسْتَرُ الْكَعْبَةُ ‏“‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ نَحْنُ يَوْمَئِذٍ خَيْرٌ مِنَّا الْيَوْمَ نَتَفَرَّغُ لِلْعِبَادَةِ وَنُكْفَى الْمُؤْنَةَ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏“‏ لأَنْتُمُ الْيَوْمَ خَيْرٌ مِنْكُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ ‏“‏‏

Hazrat Ali Radiyallahu Anhu narrated:

‘I was sitting in a gathering with Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam when Mus’ab bin ‘Umair appeared before us, wearing nothing but a sheet patched with some furs.

When Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam saw him, He began crying because of the good life Mus’ab previously had compared to the (simple) state that he was on that day.

Then Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: ‘How will you people be, when one of you will wear a garment in the morning, and at the end of the day another one. And when a platter of food will be placed in front of him while another is removed, and you will cover your houses just as the Ka’bah is covered?’ 

They said: ‘O Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) ! On that day we will be better than we are today. We will be able to devote ourselves completely in worship, as our expenses will be sufficed (due to having abundance then).

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: ‘No, today you are better than you will be on that day.’

Lessons from Hadith Shareef ~ 7 Types of People who will Enjoy the Shade of Allah Ta’ala on the Day of Qiyamah

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.”
