The just will be seated upon pulpits of light
The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “The just will be seated upon pulpits of light. Those who are fair with regards to their judgment and their family and those who are under them.”
How will be the likeness of the pulpits of light? Although we are not aware of their reality, yet we are supposed to have faith in them. We must also believe that these people (just rulers) will be under the shade of the Throne or the Divine mercy, while people will be drenched in their sweat depending on their deeds. The Hadith throws light on the excellence of justice and the high rank of those who do justice.
And Allah knows best!
