Protect yourselves from the Fire

Adi bin Hatim (radi Allahu anha) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Everyone of you will speak to his Rubb without an interpreter between them. He will look to his right and will see only the deeds he had previously done; he will look to his left and will see only the deeds he had previously done, and he will look in front of him and will see nothing but the Fire (of Hell) before his face. So protect yourselves from the Fire (of Hell), even by giving half a date-fruit (in charity).”

[Sahih al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary:

This Hadith brings into prominence the following three points:

  1. The horror of the Day of Resurrection when one will have to stand before Allah to account for all his actions which will then be lying at his both hands.
  2. Everyone should spend according to his capacity in the way of Allah in the form of Sadaqah and alms. In this way, good manners like polite conversation, etc., can also become a means of his salvation.
  3. One’s actions alone would help him on the Day of ¬†Resurrection.

And Allah Knows Best!
