Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said:
There was a
dispute between the Hell and Jannah. The Hell said: "The haughty and proud are my inmates.'' Jannah said: "The
modest and the humble are my residents". Thereupon, Allah the Exalted and Glorious (addressing Jannah) said:
"You are My Mercy, through you I shall show mercy to those whom I wish". (And addressing the Hell), He said:
"You are (the means) of My punishment by which I shall punish such of My slaves as I wish and each one of you
would have its fill".
In this Hadith people who are termed as `modest' and `humble' are the rich in Faith and piety. They
lead a life of patience and contentment. This Hadith gives glad tidings to such noble people. On the contrary, it has a
threat of Hell for those who disobey Divine injunctions and are haughty and proud. Now, it is entirely one's own
choice which way he goes.
The dialogue between Jannah and Hell quoted in this Hadith is not something impossible. It is not at all difficult for
Allah to create in them such intelligence and consciousness which can enable them to make a discussion on the
subjects mentioned in the Hadith. Thus, there is no need to offer any justification for the veracity of such Ahadith.
These should, therefore, be taken as literally correct. This Hadith is mentioned in detail in Musnad Ahmad and is
narrated by Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) at greater length than in the narration of Abu Sa`id Al-
Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) quoted in Kitab-ut-Tafsir (the Book of Commentary) of Sahih Al-Bukhari.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"On the Day of
Resurrection, there will be brought forth a bulky person whose value to Allah will be less than that of the wing of a
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith means that manifestation of power and splendour, which are considered so important for
people in this world, will be of no value to Allah. In the Hereafter, Allah will judge a person by his Faith, devotion
and piety. It is, therefore, essential that one should concentrate on the reformation of his own heart and mind.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A black woman (or probably a young man) used to
clean the mosque. Messenger of Allah (PBUH) missed her (or him) and asked about her (or him). He was told that
she (or he) had died. He (PBUH) said,
"Why did you not inform me?''
(It seemed as if) they (Companions)
considered the matter insignificant. Then he (PBUH) said,
"Show me her (or his) grave.
'' When it was shown to him,
he offered (Janazah-funeral) prayer over it and said,
"These graves cover those in them with darkness, and Allah
illumines them for the inmates as a result of my supplication for them".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
On the basis of some other narrations, the 'Ulama' have accepted that the person mentioned in this
Hadith who used to sweep the mosque was a woman known as Umm Mihjan. This Hadith highlights the following
four important points:
1. The merit of keeping mosques clean.
2. The height of compassion and kindness of the Prophet (PBUH).
3. The importance of participation in the funeral prayer of virtuous persons.
4. Permission to perform funeral prayer of virtuous person after his/her burial, if one is unable to participate in it
when it is performed before the burial of the deceased.
