Hadith Explanation

Settlement on the Day of Judgement

Narrated Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu): “Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, ‘Whoever has oppressed another person concerning his reputation or anything else, he should beg him to forgive him before the Day of Resurrection when there will be no money (to compensate for wrong deeds), but if he has good deeds, those good deeds will be taken from him according to the oppression which he has done, and if he has no good deeds, the sins of the oppressed person will be loaded on him.” [The Book of Al-Mazalim: Sahih Bukhari]

Nothing goes unnoticed by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), nor does He, in His infinite Justice, let the slightest injury go uncompensated for. Should a person settle his account with others before his/her death it is best for them. Otherwise, they will have to pay with their good deeds on the Day of Judgement.

When all of one’s good deeds vanish and accounts still have to be settled with others, they will be settled by having the sins of the victim put to the account of the offending party. May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) save us from having to pay our debts on the Day of Judgement.
