Hadith Explanation

You Will See Allah

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Do you have any doubt that you see the moon on the night when it is full and there are no clouds in front of it?” The Sahabah said: “No, O Messenger of Allah.” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Then you will see Him on the Day of Resurrection in the same way. Allah will gather the people and will say, ‘Whoever used to worship anything, let him follow it.’ So all those who used to worship the sun, or the moon, or false gods, will follow (their gods). Then this Ummah will be left, with its hypocrites among them. Then Allah will come to them in a Form other than that which they know, and He will say, ‘I am your Lord.’ They will say, ‘We seek refuge with Allah from you. This is where we will stay until our Lord comes to us. When our Lord comes to us, we will know Him.’ Then Allah will come to them in the form which they know, and He will say, ‘I am your Lord.’ They will say, ‘You are our Lord,’ and they will follow Him, and the bridge will be set up over Hell.” [Bukhaari]

On the Day of Resurrection people will follow whatever they used to worship besides Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) and will be flung into Hell along with their false gods.

Eesa (alaihis salam), his pious mother Maryam, Uzair (alaihis salam) and other such monotheistic, noble people will of course not be held responsible for the willful misguidance that people indulged in, in worshipping them. No soul carries the burden of another. Instead of these pious people, the Qareen (devil-companion) of these people, or angels in the form of these people will appear, whom their worshippers will follow. The made-up gods who will be thrown into Hell along with their worshippers will be those who allowed themselves and desired themselves to be worshipped.

This willingness to be made gods of can be witnessed in the leaders of several sects and cults as they have their followers prostrate to them and pictures of them. Prostration is a very visible form of worship. In addition to this, the leaders of sects make laws for their followers, trying to usurp Allah’s right to legislate (Tawheed Hakimiyyah).

When only the monotheistic worshippers of Allah are left, along with the hypocrites who pretended to be so, they will follow Allah. They will be given light but then the light of the hypocrites will be extinguished. They will cry out for light but they will not be given any light. They will all go towards the Siraat which will be set up over Hell. The hypocrites will lag behind and be separated from the believers. The hypocrites will be unable to successfully cross the Bridge and will fall into Hell.
