Hadith Explanation

Zakah, Fasting, Prayer, all Go to Others

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Do you know who is the one who is bankrupt?” The Sahabah said: “The bankrupt is the one who has no money and no possessions.” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Among my Ummah, the one who is bankrupt is the one who will come on the Day of Resurrection with prayer and fasting and Zakah (to his credit), but he will come having insulted this one, slandered that one, consumed the wealth of this one and shed the blood of that one, and beaten that one. So they will all be given some of his Hasanaat, and when his Hasanaat run out, before judgement is passed, some of their sins will be taken and cast onto him. Then he will be cast into the Fire.” [Muslim]

This hadith should really shake us up!

It warns us that even Muslims who pray, fast and disburse Zakat, can go to Jahannum.

Control yourself and be careful about others’ rights. In fact, forget about your own rights, you will surely get them on the Day of Judgement if not sooner, and start worrying about your responsibilities towards others.

May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) save us from bankruptcy on the Day of Judgement!
