Hadith Explanation

Seventy Snakes

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) clasped some of his fingers between others and said: “Seventy giant serpents will constrict him, if even one of them were to hiss on the earth, nothing upon it would grow as long as it remained. They will chew on him and bite him until he is brought to the Reckoning.” [Tirmidhi]

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said this about a person who is a wicked worshipper or a disbeliever. The grave does not welcome him, it punishes him and constricts upon him. In addition, seventy venomous snakes wrap themselves around his body and continuously bite him and chew on him.

Once in a while we get to hear of a person’s grave being opened for some reason but then quickly closed when it is found to be full of snakes. May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) save us from such punishment. Ameen.
