Tag Archive: day of judgement


Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you a beautiful hadith that talks about seven types of people who will be under the shade of Allah(SWT). We have to put things in persepctive though to understand how lucky and honorable it is to be part of this shade.

The day of judgement for the average person is going to be terrifying due to the fact that all his deeds, good and bad, as small as an atoms weight will be seen. As exemplified in the last two ayats of Surah Zalzalah: “So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it, And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.” (99: 7-8).

The day of judgement is going to be a time in which the sun is scorching the inhabitants of this earth due to it being one mile away from the earth. As exemplified in this hadith.“On the Day of Resurrection, the sun would draw so close to the people that there would be left a distance of only one mile. The people will be submerged in perspiration according to their deeds, some up to their ankles, some up to their knees, some up to the waist and some would have the bridle of perspiration (and, while saying this, the Messenger of Allah  put his hand towards his mouth).” [Muslim]

As you can see it will be a terrifying time because we are being judged on every single action while the sun is scorching us.

However, there are seven types of people who get shade on the day of judgement.

The hadith states,

“There are seven whom Allah will shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic; a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah’s sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says: ‘I fear Allah’; a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

Insha’Allah we all strive to be one of these seven people, we ask Allah(SWT) to give us Hidaya(guidance), protection, forgiveness, and Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Benefits of Surah Kahf

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I want to write about the benefits of reciting and knowing Surah Kahf.

First of all just reciting and reading Quran has so much benefit in it.

The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said “Whoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a hasanah(good deed) from it, and the hasanah is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem is a letter , rather Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter, and Meem is a letter.” (At-Tirmidhi).

So with this being mentioned everyone should try to incorporate Quran in their lives and learn from it. Just try it at least once and slowly build upon it. The religion of Islam is powerful so don’t overdo it and burn yourself out, rather take a gradual process to do this.

So here are some hadiths on the benefits of Surah Kahf:

From Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri, who said: “Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the night of Jumu’ah, will have a light that will stretch between him and the Ancient House (the Ka’bah).”
(Narrated by al-Daarimi, 3407. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami, 6471)

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, a light will shine for him from beneath his feet to the clouds of the sky, which will shine for him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will be forgiven (his sins) between the two Fridays.’”
(al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1/298)

Abu al-Darda (Allah be pleased with him) related that the Prophet of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) said, Whoever commits ten verses from the beginning Surat al-Kahf will be protected from the Dajjal.[Muslim, Abu Dawud, Nasai, and others; the wording is Muslims]

In a narration in Muslim and Abu Dawud it states, From the end of Surat al-Kahf. Tirmidhi related is with the words, Whoever recites three verses from the beginning ofal-Kahf will be protected from the tribulations of the Dajjal.,[Mundhiri, al-Targhib wal Tarhib, #2172-2173]

As you can see that there are many benefits to reciting and knowing this Surah. So to protect ourselves and to prepare ourselves let us try to learn more about Islam and pick up the Quran more often. Below is a link for you to purchase your own Quran and please check out our shopping page.

The Holy Qur’an: English Translation, Commentary and Notes with Full Arabic Text (English and Arabic Edition)

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you the importance of one of the most fundamental concepts of Islam: Salah(Prayer).

Salah is extremely important when it comes to being a true Muslim. It provides a gateway towards spiritual enlightenment, contentedness, and peace.

In the Quran it states, “Guard strictly your (habit of) prayers, especially the Middle Prayer; and stand before Allah in a devout (frame of mind).”(Surah Baqarah, 2:238).

Allah(SWT) commands us to guard strictly to our prayers, and the Prophet(SAW) clarifies the reasoning behind it by stating how it will be the first thing that will be asked of us on the Day of Judgement.

Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The first thing the people will be accountable for on the Day of Judgment is prayer, Allah will say to His angels (even though he already knows) : “Look at my servants prayers. Were they complete or not?” If they were complete It will be written as complete. If they were not fully complete Allah will say: “See if my servant has voluntary prayers, If he has them Allah will say: Complete his obligatory prayers shortage with his voluntary prayers.” Then the rest of his deeds will be dealt with in the same manner.” (Reported by Imams Ahmad, Abu Dawood, An-Nisa’i, and Al-Hakim)

Insha’Allah we all turn back to Allah(SWT) and hold tight to our prayers and perform them with true conviction. Do not let this world trap you from something that is a great blessing to have. Insha’Allah we all ask for Allah(SWT) to guide us, protect us, forgive us, and grant us Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you some hadiths that talk about a sign of the Day of Judgement will be people constructing tall buildings. It is interesting enough that in the world we live in presently this sign has come to truth, as has other signs have.

The hadiths are:

Narrated Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu): Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “The Hour will not be established till …the people compete with one another in constructing high buildings…” [Sahih Bukhari]

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) told us that “you shall see barefoot, naked, penniless shepherds vying in constructing high buildings.”(Sahih Muslim) This hadith describes people who become rich all of a sudden and then build not for need but only in competition.

As you can see when looking around the world is that every country has huge towering buildings now.

Insha’Allah we all come to our senses and expand our eyes and hearts to turn back to Allah(SWT). We all need to ask for guidance, protection, forgiveness, and to enter us into Junnah-al-Firdaus. The end times are coming sooner than we think and we need Allah(SWT) no matter what.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you some hadiths that convey how sending praises(Durood) to the beloved Prophet Muhammad(SAW) is a great blessing for us. As we all know, Prophet Muhammad(SAW) is a man with the best of character and is the man who will testify for us on the Day of Judgement. So it is beneficial for us to send Durood towards are beloved Prophet Muhammad(SAW).

Here are some hadiths about the benefits of Durood:

Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “He who sends a single Durood upon me, Almighty Allah rewards him ten times and ten good deeds are recorded in his book of good deeds”. (Tirmidhi)

Abdullah ibn Masood (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that  Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “On the Day of Qiyamah, the closest to me from among the people will be those that have read the most amount of Durood”. (Tirmidhi: Kanzul Amaal)

Abu Talha (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that he once entered the Court of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and noticed that the Habeeb of Almighty Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was in a state of great joy and happiness. When he inquired as to the reason for this, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) replied that, “Why should I not be happy and joyous? At this very moment Sayyiduna Jibra’el Ameen (alaihis salaam) has brought me a message. Almighty Allah has declared, ‘O Muhammad! Are you not pleased with this, that if any of your followers sends a single Durood upon you, I and My Angels (Malaa’ikah) send ten blessings upon that person, ten of his sins are pardoned and ten good deeds are recorded in his favour. He who sends Salaams upon you, I send Salaams upon him, so therefore, notify your Ummah of this good news and tell them that it is now left to them to either increase or decrease the recital of the Durood Shareef'”. (Nisaai)

Abdullah ibn Masood (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that, “I read my Salaah in the Masjid when Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), Sayyiduna Abu Bakr and Sayyiduna Umar (radi Allahu anhuma) were present. When I had completed the Salaah, I began to praise Almighty Allah. Thereafter, I began to read the Durood Shareef. When I started the Du’a, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) exclaimed, ‘Ask, and you shall receive, you shall receive!'”. (Tirmidhi)

Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “On the Pillars of the Arsh of Almighty Allah are written the following words, ‘He who desires to meet Me, I bless him. He who asks from Me, I grant him. He who reads the Durood upon my Habeeb (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) desiring My closeness, I pardon his sins, even if it be more than the foams of the ocean'”. (Dalaa’ilul Khayraat)

Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “There is a purifier and a refinement for everything. For the heart of a Muslim, a means of purification and refinement is through the recital of the Durood Shareef”. (Al Qolul Badi)

Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “O my followers! Your recital of the Durood Shareef is a protector for your Du’as. It also achieves for you the Pleasure of Almighty Allah and it purifies your actions”. (Sadaatud Daarain)

There are many different Durood’s, but I linked one. Find out online about the other Durood’s.

There are many more hadiths on the benefits of Durood, but even with this much we can see how beneficial for us in this dunya(world) and in the Ahkirah(Hereafter) reciting the Durood is.

Insha’Allah that we turn to Allah(SWT) and ask for his forgiveness, guidance, protection, and to enter us all into Junnah al Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sisters’,

I would like to share with you this hadith in which the Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wa salam) told about the nearing of the Day of Judgement.  I will only put up the part of the hadith which talks about earthquakes because the full hadith is long and delves into various other signs. I would also like to show you how this sign is mentioned in the Quran.

Abu Hurairah(radiallahu anhu) said, “The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa salam) said, The Hour will not come until the following events have come to pass until . . . earthquakes will increase . . . (Bukhari, Hasan)

Here is an english translation of Surah Al-Zalzalah: “When the earth is shaken with its [final] earthquake. And the earth discharges its burdens. And man says, “What is

with it?” – That Day, it will report its news. Because your Lord has commanded it. That Day, the people will depart separated [into categories] to be shown [the result of] their deeds.So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it, And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it.” (Quran: 99: 1-8).

Now if you look up the history of earthquakes and the occurrence of earthquakes the results may be a shocking. Many years ago earthquakes rarely happened, and now they are happening with many in one day.

The image below shows the trend of earthquakes from 1973 up until 2006, but the earthquakes have increased even more in 2013 as exemplified by real time data from the United States Geological Survey(This site is listed as a link below).

How can a scripture and a man be able to predict this increase in earth activity 1400 years ago, unless it was divinely inspired.

Insha’Allah, we will all come back to Allah(SWT) and ask for forgiveness, mercy, guidance, protection, and paradise.

So lets all strive to come back to Allah(SWT) to help us and enter us in the highest part of Junnat(Paradise).
