Hadith Explanation

Misfortunes Enrich You for Day of Judgement

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The believer continues to be afflicted with hardships in his or her body, wealth and children, until he or she meets Allah completely free of all wrong actions.” [Al-Hakim; Kitab ar-Riqaq]

Hardships and afflictions erase our bad deeds from our records. Our patience through misfortunes is recorded as good deeds. When Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) wishes to favour us, He helps us with our Record of Deeds in this way, so that when we meet Him we are free of sins (them having been wiped out with misfortunes) and our Record is in good shape. Then its smooth sailing to Paradise, inshaAllah!

That is why some of our predecessors used to say, “Had it not been for misfortunes, we would have arrived in the Akhirah completely destitute.”
