Reason of revelation of Allah's statement or martyrs

43) Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: Allah's; Messenger Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) said:
When your brethren were killed as martyrs in the battle of Uhod, Allah put their souls into some green birds which arrived at the rivers of Paradise, ate from its fruits and took shelter beside lanterns, made of gold, and suspended in the shade of the divine Throne. When they enjoyed eating, drinking and sleeping, they said: Who will convey to our brethren on earth that; (we are alive in Paradise where we are provided with sustenance, so that they would neither renounce fighting in the way of Allah nor retreat at the time of war). Allah, the Glorified, said: I shall inform them of you. The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) said: So Allah revealed this verse:

(Don't consider those killed in the way of Allah as dead, rather they are alive with their Lord being provided with sustenance).(3:169)

Some attributes of the Inhabitants of Paradise and Hell

44) Aiyad Ibn Himar Al-Majashie reported that one day Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) said in his speech: Behold! Indeed Allah has commanded me to inform you of what you are unfamiliar with; and what He has taught me today: Every wealth, I have conferred upon a slave is lawful.

Indeed I have created My slaves being true in faith; but the satans approached them and turned them away from their religion and what had been permissible declared as forbidden for them. Further the satans ordered them to make partners with me for which I have revealed no evidence. Verily, Allah looked at the people on earth and hated both Arabs and non-Arabs - except a few people of the Scripture.

Allah added: I have sent you as a Prophet to the people so that I may test you and test the believers through you and revealed to you a book that water cannot erase. So you should read it while asleep and awake. The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) said: Indeed Allah has ordered me to burn (the disbelievers of) Quresh, (the Prophet's tribe of Mecca) So I said: O Lord! They would crush my head like bread.

Allah said: Drive them out as they drove you out of your city. Fight them, We shall support you. Spend (money in the cause of Allah), We will spend on you. Send an army, We will send five like that. Fight with your followers against those who deny you. He said: The inhabitants of Paradise are three kinds of people: First is a powerful, just, almsgiver, and a successful man. second is a kind, tender-hearted man towards every relative and Muslim.

Third is a decent father to many children. He also said: Dwellers of Hell are five types: First is a weak-follower man who has no sense to avoid the evil or work for family or wealth. Second is a dishonest man whose greed is well known to people, even for minor things. Third is a man who will betray you about your family and wealth at both the ends of the day. He also mentioned a miser or a liar and a person who uses bad words.

(This Hadith is sound and related by Muslim.)

 

45) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) said: Once Paradise and Hell argued with one another. Hell said: I have been given preference by the oppressors and tyrants. Paradise said: What is the matter with me that only weak and humble people enter me. Allah Sa'id to the paradise: You are My mercy. I will bestow mercy through you on whom I wish from among My slaves. And He said to Hell: Rather you are My torment. I will torment by you whom I wish from among My slaves. The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) added: Each of them will take its capacity. As for Hell, it will not be filled until Allah puts down His glorified foot in it. Then it will say: Enough! Enough! Enough! at that time all its parts will be filled up. Allah will not treat unjustly any one of His creation. As regards Paradise, Allah will create other creations to fill it. (Being All-Merciful)

Insignificance and worthlessness of this world

46) Narrated Anas that Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) said: One of the most miserable people in the world will be brought from among the people of Paradise. Allah will say (to the angels): Dip him once in Paradise. So they will dip him once in it. Then Allah will ask him: Did you ever face any distress or a thing you hate. He would say: No, By Your Glory! Never did I face anything unpleasant. Then one of the most affluent people of the world will be brought from Hell. Allah will command (the angels:) Dip him once in it. Then He will ask him: O son of Adam! Did you ever enjoy any comfort? (that is, a dip in hell can make one forget the meaning of comfort.)

The Prophet (pbuh) said: At this juncture every child would turn gray-haired and every pregnant would miscarry due to the dread of the moment and you would see people as drunk while they would not actually be. The torment of Allah would be grievous enough to make them so. Then the companions asked: O Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) ! Who would be that single person among us? He said: Be happy! When one is selected for Paradise) from among you, one thousand from Gog and Magog would be sent to Hell. Then he said: By Him in whose hand is my soul! I hope you will constitute one fourth of the inhabitants of Paradise. We exclaimed.(Allah is All-Great) He said: I anticipate you would be one third of the people of Paradise. again we shouted. He said: I expect you would be half of the people of Paradise. Again we exclaimed.

They said: No. He further said: Do you feel any difficulty in seeing the Moon at the night of full moon when there is no cloud. They said: No. Thereupon he said: By Him who holds my life! You will not face any difficulty in seeing Allah as much as seeing one of them.

The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) added: Then Allah would sit for judgment upon the slaves and would say: O so and so! Did I not honor you and make you chief and provide you a spouse and subdue for you horses and camels and offered you an opportunity to rule over your subjects and take one fourth of booty. The slave would say, Yes. The Prophet (pbuh) said: Allah would say: Did you not think that you would meet me? He would say: No.

Thereupon, Allah would say: I overlook you today as you forgot me. Then the second person will be brought (for judgment). Allah would say: O so and so! Did I not honor you and make you the chief and make you a pair and subdue for you horses and camels and offered you an opportunity to rule over your subjects and take one fourth of booty.

He would say: Yes, my Lord! Then he would say: Did you not think that you would meet Me. The slave would say: No. At this moment Allah would say: Well, I overlook you today as you forgot Me.

Then the third one would be brought for judgment. Allah would ask him the same thing. At this, the slave would say: O. my Lord! I believed in You and Your Book and Your apostles. Also, I performed prayers, observed fast and gave charity. Then he would speak in good terms like this. Allah would say: Well;. The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) added: Then, it would be said to him: Now, we will bring our witnesses to you. Then man will think: Who will bear witness upon me. Then, his mouth would be sealed and it would be said to his thighs, flesh and bones: Speak. So his thighs, flesh and bones would bear witness to his deeds.

The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) said: Allah would say: Yes. The Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) added: Then the slave would say: Today I do not allow any witness against me except a witness of my own self.

Then the Prophet(Sallallahu alaihi vasallam) said: Allah would say: Today only yourself and the noble recording angels would be witnesses to you.
