Hadith Explanation

Vessels of Gold and Silver

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The one who eats and drinks from vessels of gold and silver is pouring the Fire of Hell into his stomach.” [Muslim]

We have been sent to earth to earn our everlasting abodes in Jannah and not so that we try to make our Jannahs here. Whoever tries to do so is actually being very foolish, for the Paradise that one makes on earth must come to an end while the one prepared by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will be enjoyed by its inheritors for ever. Secondly, the Paradise that one makes on earth cannot compete in grandeur, beauty, comfort or happiness with the Paradise that Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has prepared for us.

To eat or drink from containers of gold or silver betrays weak conviction in the promises of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). These luxuries are for the disbelievers in this world and for us in the Hereafter.
