People Under the Shade of Allah on the Judgment Day

Table of Contents

When the creatures will stand at that great assembly under the scorching sun and suffer a hardship that even solid mountains cannot bear

A group of righteous people will enjoy shelter from that heat under the shade of Allah’s Throne. They will not suffer the hardship that others suffer.

These are the people of truthful resolution.

In a Hadith reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said;

“There are seven persons whom Allah will give the protection of His Shade on the Day when there will be no shade but His shade.

There are many other texts mentioning that Allah would provide shelter under His Throne for those who love one another for His sake.

One of these is the Hadith that Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Allah, the Exalted will say on the Day of Resurrection:

Where are those who love one another for My sake?

Today, I will give the protection of My Shade on the Day when there will be no shade but My shade.

Recorded by Muslim

The above-mentioned seven are not the only ones to be given shelter under the Shade of Allah’s Throne. There are others also mentioned in other Hadiths.

Ibn Hajar al’Asqalani has compiled qualities that could earn one protection under the shade of Allah’s Throne in a treatise that he named, ‘Ma’ria tul Khisal al Musilah ilaz Zilal”.

People who will be under the Shade of Allah's Throne

Giving respite to the poor or writing off his debt

Muslim reported that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever gives respite to a poor person or writes off his debt, Allah will give protection under His shade on the Day of Resurrection.

Those who strive to meet the needs of their brethren

One of the things that relieves a person of the hardships of the Day of Resurrection is to strive in alleviating the sufferings of the unfortunate ones in this world, helping the needy and overlooking the mistakes of others.

Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said;

“Whosoever removes a worldly grief from a believer, Allah will remove from him one of the griefs of the Day of Judgment.

Whosoever alleviates [the lot of] a needy person, Allah will alleviate [his lot] in this world and the next.

Whosoever shields a Muslim, Allah will shield him in this world and the next. Allah will aid a servant [of His] so long as the servant aids his brother.

Recorded by Muslim

 

‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said;

The Muslim is a brother of his fellow Muslim. He should neither wrong him nor surrender him (to an enemy).

If a person meets the needs of his brother, Allah will meet his own need.

Whosoever removes a worldly hardship from a Muslim, Allah will remove from him one of the hardships of the Day of Resurrection.

Whosoever shields a Muslim, Allah will shield him on the Day of Resurrection.

Recorded by Al-Bukhari and Muslim

Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) related that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said;

Whoever helps his brother in his absence, Allah will help him in this world and in the Hereafter.

Al-Bayhaqi and Ad-Daynuri

Those who are just in their ruling and in regards to treatment of their families

Those who are just will occupy a high position on the Day of Resurrection. They will be made to sit on pulpits of light on the right side of the Merciful Lord.

The Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said;

Behold! The Dispensers of justice will be seated on the pulpits of light beside God, on the right side of the Merciful, Exalted and Glorious. Either side of the Being is the right side both being equally meritorious.

The Dispensers of justice are those who do justice in their rules, in matters relating to their families and in all that they undertake to do.
