You (Muslims) are Witness of Allah on The Earth?!..

Al-Bukhaari (1367) and Muslim (949) narrated that Anas ibn Maalik (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

مَرُّوا بِجَنَازَةٍ فَأَثْنَوْا عَلَيْهَا خَيْرًا

A funeral passed by and they spoke well of (the deceased).

The Prophet (صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) said: وَجَبَتْ

 “It has become certain.”

ثُمَّ مَرُّوا بِأُخْرَى فَأَثْنَوْا عَلَيْهَا شَرًّا

Another funeral passed by and they spoke badly of (the deceased).

The Prophet (صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) said: وَجَبَتْ

 “It has become certain.”

‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

مَا وَجَبَتْ ؟

 What has become certain?

He صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said:

هَذَا أَثْنَيْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ خَيْرًا فَوَجَبَتْ لَهُ الْجَنَّةُ ،

وَهَذَا أَثْنَيْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ شَرًّا فَوَجَبَتْ لَهُ النَّارُ ،

أَنْتُمْ شُهَدَاءُ اللَّهِ فِي الْأَرْضِ

“For the one of whom you spoke well, Paradise has become certain, and for the one of whom you spoke badly, Hell has become certain. 

You are the witnesses of Allah on earth.”


An Amazing Hadith!!!


Reminds one of the following


Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطاً

 لِتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاءَ عَلَى النَّاسِ

وَيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ عَلَيْكُمْ شَهِيداً

“Thus We have made you [true Muslims — real believers of Islamic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways)], a just (and the best) nation, that you be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger (Muhammad) be a witness over you” [al-Baqarah 2:143]
