I'd like to be Raised in Light
A bedouin asked the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam): “I'd like to be raised on the Day of Judgment in light.” The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Don't wrong yourself or any other creature, and you will be raised on the Day of Judgment in light.” [Related by Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal]
On the Day of Judgement there will be a time when it will be pitch dark and only those with light will be able to find their way to Jannah.
To wrong oneself is to sin. Whom we harm by our sins are ourselves. They become darkness for us on the Day of Judgement.
May we guard ourselves from wronging ourselves and others.
May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) grant us light on the Day of Judgement.
