Hadith of ” 7 people under the shade of Allah”
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Seven (people) will be shaded by Allah by His Shade on the Day of Resurrection when there will be no shade except His Shade. (They will be), a just ruler, a young man who has been brought up in the worship of Allah, a man who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes are then flooded with tears, a man whose heart is attached to mosques (offers his compulsory congregational prayers in the mosque),
two men who love each other for Allah’s Sake, a man who is called by a charming lady of noble birth to commit illegal sexual intercourse with her, and he says, ‘I am afraid of Allah,’ and (finally), a man who gives in charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given.”
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ سَلاَمٍ، أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ، عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ، عَنْ خُبَيْبِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، عَنْ حَفْصِ بْنِ عَاصِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ “ سَبْعَةٌ يُظِلُّهُمُ اللَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فِي ظِلِّهِ، يَوْمَ لاَ ظِلَّ إِلاَّ ظِلُّهُ إِمَامٌ عَادِلٌ، وَشَابٌّ نَشَأَ فِي عِبَادَةِ اللَّهِ، وَرَجُلٌ ذَكَرَ اللَّهَ فِي خَلاَءٍ فَفَاضَتْ عَيْنَاهُ، وَرَجُلٌ قَلْبُهُ مُعَلَّقٌ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ، وَرَجُلاَنِ تَحَابَّا فِي اللَّهِ، وَرَجُلٌ دَعَتْهُ امْرَأَةٌ ذَاتُ مَنْصِبٍ وَجَمَالٍ إِلَى نَفْسِهَا قَالَ إِنِّي أَخَافُ اللَّهَ. وَرَجُلٌ تَصَدَّقَ بِصَدَقَةٍ فَأَخْفَاهَا، حَتَّى لاَ تَعْلَمَ شِمَالُهُ مَا صَنَعَتْ يَمِينُهُ ”.
Hadith Bukhari shareef
The 7 people under the shade of Allah are-
- The Just Ruler:
A just ruler, who leads with fairness, compassion, and integrity, will find themselves under the shade of Allah’s mercy. This category highlights the significance of leadership based on justice and equity. A ruler who serves their people selflessly and upholds the principles of justice will earn Allah’s protection in the Hereafter.
- The Youth Who Grows Up in Worship:
Young individuals who dedicate their early years to the worship of Allah will be granted special favor. Their commitment to faith and their avoidance of sinful behavior demonstrate their genuine devotion to Allah, and this devotion earns them a place in His shade on the Day of Judgment.
- The One Whose Heart is Attached to the Mosque:
Frequenting the mosque and maintaining a strong connection to the house of worship is a sign of a deep and steadfast faith. Those who sincerely love the mosque and are regular attendees will find themselves under Allah’s protective shade in the Hereafter. This encourages a strong bond with the community and the remembrance of Allah.
- The Two Individuals Who Love Each Other for Allah’s Sake:
Love for the sake of Allah is a profound and selfless form of affection. Two people who cherish one another because of their shared faith and dedication to Allah will be rewarded by being in the shade of His mercy. This exemplifies the importance of cultivating sincere and positive relationships within the Muslim community.
- The Person Who Resists Temptation:
Resisting worldly temptations, especially when they conflict with one’s faith and values, is a powerful testament to one’s character and devotion to Allah. Those who manage to abstain from sinful desires will be sheltered by Allah’s mercy on the Day of Judgment. This serves as a reminder of the importance of self-control and discipline in the path of faith.
- The Person Who Gives in Charity Secretly:
Charity, or “sadaqah,” is highly esteemed in Islam. However, giving secretly without seeking recognition or praise is even more commendable. Such individuals, who silently help those in need, will be among those granted Allah’s protection on the Day of Judgment. This emphasizes the importance of sincere intentions in acts of charity.
- The One Who Remembers Allah in Solitude and Sheds Tears in His Reverence:
Devotion to Allah is not limited to public displays of faith; it also involves private moments of reflection and worship. Those who remember Allah in solitude, with a heart full of reverence and humility, will be enveloped by His shade on the Day of Judgment. This underscores the significance of a personal, heartfelt connection with the Divine.
