  • The First Three...

    :salams

    On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) say:

    The first of people against whom judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died a martyr. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [ The Almighty] will say: "And what did you do about them?"

    He will say: "I fought for you until I died a martyr."

    Allah will say: "You have lied - you did but fight that it might be said [of you]: He is courageous. And so it was said."

    Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire. [Another] will be a man who has studied [religious] knowledge and has taught it and who used to recite the Quran. He will be brought and Allah will make known to his His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: "And what did you do about them?"

    He will say: "I studied [religious] knowledge and I taught it and I recited the Quran for Your sake."

    Allah will say: "You have lied - you did but study [religious] knowledge that it might be said [of you]: He is learned. And you recited the Quran that it might be said [of you]: He is a reciter. And so it was said."

    Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire. [Another] will be a man whom Allah had made rich and to whom He had given all kinds of wealth. He will be brought and Allah will make known to his His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: "And what did you do about them?"

    He will say: "I left no path [untrodden] in which You like money to be spent without spending in it for Your sake."

    Allah will say: "You have lied - you did but do so that it might be said [of you]: He is open-handed. And so it was said." Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.

    It was related by Muslim (also by at-Tirmidhi and an-Nasa'i).


    This is a reminder to always keep your niyah (intention) in check. If you are doing something, make sure you ask yourself:
    1. Am I doing this for the sake of Allah?
    2. Is what I'm doing a means to get me closer to Him?
    3. Is there any khayr in my action?
    4. Is this purely for my ego/pride/self/desires or for Allah?


    And other questions like that. Reflect on your actions, before you do them to see if there is any benefit from it. If there is, say Bismillah, put your heart into it and do it. If there isn't, then it's best to stay away and in shaa' Allah Allah will reward you from this.
    مَّن ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ أَضْعَافًا كَثِيرَةً وَاللّهُ يَقْبِضُ وَيَبْسُطُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ

    "Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan, which Allah will double unto his credit and multiply many times?
    It is Allah that giveth (you) Want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return."
    Surah al-Baqarah
    [2:245]
