Abu Barzah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Man's feet will not
move on the Day of Resurrection before he is asked about his life, how did he consume it, his knowledge, what did
he do with it, his wealth, how did he earn it and how did he dispose of it, and about his body, how did he wear it
1. This Hadith first of all highlights the importance and value of this transitory life, every breath of which is
invaluable. Not a moment of it should, therefore, be wasted in the disobedience of Allah because one shall also be
made to account for it.
2. Man shall also be answerable for his knowledge. Here, we find an inducement for acquiring religious knowledge
because that alone is beneficial for him. He should make use of his knowledge for winning the pleasure of Allah. If
he does not do that then he must think about the justification for not doing so. He must also think how he would be
facing Allah on the Day of Resurrection.
3. The question in respect of wealth raised in this Hadith clearly shows that one should earn wealth by legitimate
means only and spend it strictly in a lawful manner. If he takes to unfair means of income or squanders it, he will be
sinful and required to account for the violation of the Divine injunctions.
4. One should protect his body from everything that is unlawful and force himself to submit to the Divine
injunctions. When he is asked to account for neglecting them, it will be difficult for him to escape the consequences
of accountability.
In short, this Hadith makes one conscious of the accountability so that one keeps it all the time in view so that he
will be saved from humiliation on the Day of Resurrection. How nice would it really be if one bears the
accountability of the Day of Resurrection always in mind!

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) recited,
"That Day it
(the earth) will reveal its news (about all that happened over it of good or evil).''
(99:4). Then he (PBUH) inquired,
"Do you know what its news are?
'' He was told: "Allah and His Messenger know better". He said,
"Its news is that it
shall bear witness against every slave man and woman they did on its back. It will say: `You did this and this on
such and such day.' Those will be its news.''
This Hadith makes evident the perfect Omnipotence of Allah by telling us that He will bestow power
of speech on the earth and it will bear witness to the acts committed on its surface. It has stern warning for people
that however they may try to hide their sins from others, they will not be able to save themselves from Allah and His
system of accountability.

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"How can I
feel at ease when the Angel of the Trumpet, (Israfil) has put his lips to the Trumpet and is waiting for the order to
blow it".
He (PBUH) perceived as if this had shocked his Companions, so he (PBUH) told them to seek comfort
through reciting:
`Hasbunallah wa ni`mal-Wakil
[Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of
affairs (for us)]".
