Day of Judgement – Disgrace, Sweat and Intercession (Hadith No. 1252)

Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 24, Number 553:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “A man keeps on asking others for something till he comes on the Day of Resurrection without any piece of flesh on his face.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) added, “On the Day of Resurrection, the Sun will come near (to, the people) to such an extent that the sweat will reach up to the middle of the ears, so, when all the people are in that state, they will ask Adam (`alayhissalaam) for help, and then Moses (`alayhissalaam), and then Muhammad (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam).” The sub-narrator added “Muhammad (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) will intercede with Allah to judge amongst the people. He will proceed on till he will hold the ring of the door (of Paradise) and then Allah will exalt him to Maqam Mahmud (the privilege of intercession, etc.). And all the people of the gathering will send their praises to Allah.

This man used to ask of people a lot, even when he was not in need. It’s something undignified. One’s self-respect should keep him from stooping to such a level. So when this person will be brought on the Day of Judgement, his face will be without flesh. It’s to show disgrace and disrespect. If he didn’t practice self-respect in his life in this world, he shall not have it on that day either. Like sin, like punishment.

Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) warns about the Day of Judgement, when the Sun will be so near that people will sweat like crazy. Imagine someone (literally) drowning in his sweat, his sweat reaching up to the middle of his ears. One drop of sweat trickles down my forehead in this world’s summer where the Sun is situated thousands of miles away, and it makes me feel so agitated. I wonder how it would feel to be sweating so profusely that day. May Allah save us from it and give us a place under His Shade on the Day of Judgement.

Read about intercession in the Hereafter here, and the High Status (Maqaam Mahmood) of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallamhere.

P.S. did anyone notice today’s date and the Hadith number? Coincidence? I think so! :P

        Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh now I get it!! SubhanAllah, it was RIGHT there and I couldn’t see it! When it comes to stuff like this, my sight is so constricted. Trust me, I do this so often, it drives my mom crazy.

        Putting my little dilemma aside, I have to smile at the occurrence of it all. It’s so beautiful when stuff like this happens. I mean, it’s only a mere coincidence but it’ll put a big grin on your face every time you recall it. :)
