Shade to Seven on the Day when there will be no shade but His

610. Narrated Aboo Huraira (radhi Allaahu anhu) : The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,

Allaah (Subhaanu wata’alaa) will give shade, to seven, on the Day when there will be no shade but His. (These seven persons are)

  1. A just ruler,
  2. A youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allaah (i.e. worships Allaah (Subhaanu wata’alaa) Alone sincerely from his childhood),
  3. A man whose heart is attached to the mosques (i.e. who offers the five compulsory congregational Salaat (prayers) in the mosques),
  4. Two persons who love each other only for Allaah’s sake, and they meet and part in Allaah’s cause only,
  5. A man who refusesthe call of a charming woman of noble birth for illegal sexual intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allaah,
  6. A man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity),
  7. And a person who remembers Allaah (Subhaanu wata’alaa) in seclusion and his eyes become flooded with tears.”
