Hadith ~ Losers on the Day of Judgment

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Narrated Abu-Zarr (may Allah be pleased with him): ‘I came to the Messenger of Allah (SAWS) while he was sitting in the shade of Ka’aba. When he saw me coming, he said: “They are the losers on the Day of Judgment, by the Lord of Ka’aba.” I said to myself: “What would be wrong with me? There must have been a revelation concerning me.” I said: “Who are these, may my father and mother be sacrificed for you?” The Messenger of Allah (SAWS) said: “They are Al-Aktharoon[1] except the one that does like this.” The Messenger of Allah (SAWS) indicated as if he was scooping with his hands in front of him, on his right, and on his left (meaning except he that gives zakat fearing not poverty). Then he said: “By Him, in Whose hands my soul is, there is no one that dies and leaves camels or cows without paying their zakat, except that they will come on the Day of Judgment as the greatest and as fattest that they could be and they will tread on him with their hooves and butt him with their horns incessantly. Each time the last of them has trodden on him, the first one will tread on him, until Allah judges between the people.'” (At-Termizi)

SAWS: May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection

[1]: Al-Aktharoon are those wealthy people who evade the payment of zakat.

Commentary ~ The Most Difficult of Deeds

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “Among deeds, there are four that are most difficult to adorn oneself with: 1) Forgiveness when angry; 2) Generosity in hard times; 3) Chastity when alone; and 4) Speaking the truth to the one that fears it.”
