A bold khutbah describing those who will be under Allaah’s Shade on the Day there will be no shade except His shade.
As we approach summer, the temperature rises and the heat becomes increasingly unbearable day-by-day. Then reflect, O brothers and sisters, on the day on which the sun will be brought close. On this day, there will be no shade except for those provided with Allaah’s Shade. Our Messenger, may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace, has indeed described this successful group in a narration found in the Saheehayn on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him. In a past khutbah, from many summers ago, our brother, Abu Uways, may Allaah have mercy on him, presents these descriptions in a strong admonition. Listen to this audio, may Allaah reward you, so in shaa’ allaah, you could be from this group.
Some additional notes:
The Prophet said:
There are seven whom Allah ill shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade: a just ruler; a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic; a man whose heart is attached to the mosques; two men who love each other for Allah’s sake, meeting for that and parting upon that; a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says: ‘I fear Allah’, a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.‘
Narrated by Abu Hurairah & collected in Sahih al-Bukhari (english trans.) vol.1, p.356, no.629 & Sahih Muslim english trans.) vol.2, p.493, no.2248
‘On the Day of Resurrection, the sun would draw so close to the people that there would be left a distance of only one mile. The people 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 would have the bridle of perspiration and, while saying this, the Messenger of Allah put his hand towards his mouth.’
