Hadith Explanation


Your Retaliation


“A man came and sat in front of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I have two slaves who tell me lies, betray and disobey me, and I insult them and beat them. What is my position with regard to them?’

“The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: ‘On the Day of Resurrection, their betrayal, disobedience and lying will be measured against your punishment of them. If your punishment is commensurate with their wrongs, then there will be no score to settle. If your punishment of them was less than their sins deserved, then this will count in your favour. If your punishment of them was more than their sins deserved, then the score will be settled against you.’

“The man turned away and started to weep. The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said to him, ‘Have you not read the words of Allah, ‘And We shall set up Balances of justice on the Day of Resurrection, then none will be dealt with unjustly in anything. And if there be the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it. And Sufficient are We to take account.’’ (Quran: Surah al-Anbiya, Ayat 47)” [Sunan Tirmidhi]

Be careful that in trying to get even you don’t become the oppressor and loser.
