Hadith Explanation

Judgement on Murders First

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The first thing for which a man will be brought to account will be his Salaah, and the first matter concerning which judgement will be passed among the people will be bloodshed.” [Nasaa’i]

Ibn Hajar says: “The matter which is attended to first is the most important, and the seriousness of any sin is connected to its negative consequences and its impact on the common good.” [Fath al-Baari]

Bloodshed pertains to interactions among people, while Salaah is between oneself and one’s Creator. These are two separate heads of action. While Salah will be enquired about first, judgement will passed first on matters of bloodshed.
