This Hadith gives us a glimpse of the horrible scene of the Resurrection when people will stand in
awe before Allah.

. Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) delivered a Khutbah 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].
Another narration is: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) heard of something about his Companions upon which he
addressed them and said,
"Jannah and (Hell) Fire were shown to me and I have never seen the like of this day 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.
1. We learn from this Hadith that Jannah and Hell do exist. The Prophet (PBUH) was shown both of them.
2. Excessive laughing is improper because it indicates that one is careless and forgetful of the Hereafter, while a
Muslim is required to be all the time alert and careful about it.
3. To weep out of fear of Allah, is praiseworthy because it indicates that one's heart is full of fear and he is worried
about the Hereafter.

Al-Miqdad (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: 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 distance of one Meel''
. Sulaim bin
`Amir said: By Allah, I do not know whether he meant by "Meel'', the mile of the distance measure or the stick used
for applying antimony powder to the eye. (Messenger of Allah (PBUH) is, however, reported to have said:)
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".
It is not clear whether the Arabic word
in this Hadith is for the mileage or is the stick used for
applying antimony. A mile consists of eight furlongs. Some of the commentators of Hadith hold that it comprises
four thousand Dhira`. Hafiz Ibn Hajar is of the opinion that it is equal to twelve thousand human steps. (For detail
please see the book `Mir'atul Mafatih' Chapter Salat-us-Safar). If it stands for the mileage even then it gives an idea
of the heat of the sun. Although it is billions of miles away from the earth but one cannot bear its heat in summer.
When the sun shall be at a distance of one mile, its heat shall be so intense that people would be immersed in sweat.
May Allah save us from it.
