The Prophet’s Teachings On the Fear of God

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Hell will be brought on that Day (the Day of Resurrection) with seventy chains; and with every chain will be seventy thousand angels, pulling it”.

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “The least tortured man on the Day of Resurrection is one underneath whose feet will be placed two live coal, and his brain will be boiling, and he would think that he is the most tortured, while he is the least tortured” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Prophet of Allah (PBUH) said, “Among the people of Hell are there those who will be emersed in fire to their ankels, some to their knees, some to their waists, and some to their throats”.

I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH) as saying, “Mankind will stand before Allah, the Master of the worlds (on the Day of Resurrection), some of them will stand submerged in perspiration up to half of their ears”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) delivered a sermon to us the like of which I had never heard from him before. He said, “If you knew what I know, you would laugh little and weep much”. Thereupon those present covered their faces and began sobbing. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) heard of something about his Companions upon which he addressed them and said, “Paradise and (Hell) Fire were shown to me and I have never seen the like of  it in good and in evil. If you were to know what I know, you would laugh little and weep much”. His Companions experienced such suffering on that day that had no equal. They covered their faces and began to weep.

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “On the Day of Resurrection, the sun will come so close to people that there would be left only a little distance”. and He said: “The people then will be submerged in perspiration according to their deeds, some up to their ankles, some up to their knees, some up to the waist and some will have the bridle of perspiration (reaching their mouth and nose) and, while saying this Messenger of Allah (PBUH) pointed to his mouth with his hand”.

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “The people will perspire on the Day of Resurrection and their perspiration will be seventy cubits down in the earth and it will reach up to their ears “
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

We were in the company of Messenger of Allah (PBUH) when we heard a bang. Thereupon Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said. “Do you know what this (sound) is?” We said, “Allah and His Messenger know better.” He (PBUH) said,“That is a stone which was thrown into Hell seventy years before and it has just reached its bottom”.

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Everyone of you will speak to his Creator without an interpreter between them. He will look to his right side and will see only the deeds he had previously done; he will look to his left and will see only the deeds he had previously done, and he will look in front of him and will see nothing but Fire (of Hell) before his face. So protect yourselves from Fire (of Hell), even by giving half a date-fruit (in charity)”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “I see what you do not see and I hear what you do not hear; heaven has squeaking, and it has right to do so. By Him, in Whose Hand my soul is, there is not a space of four fingers in which there is not an angel who is prostrating his forehead before Allah, the Exalted. By Allah, if you knew what I know, you would laugh little, weep much, and you would not enjoy women in beds, but would go out to the open space beseeching Allah”.\

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Man’s feet will not move on the Day of Resurrection before he is asked about his life, how did he consume it, his knowledge, what did he do with it, his wealth, how did he earn it and how did he dispose of it, and about his body, how did he wear it out.” [At-Tirmidhi]

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “How can I feel at ease when the Angel of the Trumpet, (Israfil) has put his lips to the Trumpet and is waiting for the order to blow it”. He (PBUH) perceived as if this had shocked his Companions, so he (PBUH) told them to seek comfort through reciting: `Hasbunallah wa ni`mal-Wakil [Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of  affairs (for us)]”.

“he who sets out early, reaches his destination. Be on your guard that the commodity of Allah is precious. Verily the commodity of Allah is Paradise”.

Aishah (The Wife of the Prophet) reported: I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying, “The people will be assembled on the Day of Resurrection barefooted, naked and uncircumcised”. I said, “O Messenger of Allah! Will the men and the women be together on that Day; looking at one another?” Upon this Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “O Aishah, the matter will be too serious for them to look at one another”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
