1. This Hadith tells us about the fear of Allah and the fright of the Hereafter entertained by the Prophet (PBUH) and
his Companions. It has a lesson for us that how, in spite of being innocent and having the assurance of the
forgiveness of Allah, they were always fearful of Allah and the horrors of the Day of Resurrection. As against them,
we are immersed in sins, neglect and violate the Divine injunctions day and night but even then we have neither the
fear of Allah nor the fright of the Day of Resurrection.
2. In the event of fear and anxiety one should seek the help of Allah and frequently recite the Verse of the Noble
"Hasbunallahu wa ni`mal Wakil'' [Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs
(for us).]''

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying,
"He who
is afraid of the pillage of the enemy, sets out in the early part of the night; and he who sets out early, reaches his
destination. Be on your guard that the commodity of Allah is precious. Verily the commodity of Allah is Jannah".
Imam At-Taibi has stated that the Prophet (PBUH) mentioned this example for travellers to the
Hereafter, because Satan is sitting on this passage and man's self and his false desires are his helpers. If a person is
wide-awake in his travel and exercises caution in his activities, he is not only saved from the vices of Satan, but his
own false desires also do not stand in his way. The Prophet (PBUH) also pointed out that the way to the Hereafter is
very hard and littered with great impediments and obstructions and it is by no means easy to traverse it. Jannah is an
invaluable gift and unless man gives the sacrifice of his life and wealth, he will not become eligible for entering it.
"Allah has purchased the lives and properties of Muslims for Jannah". (Tuhfatul Ahwadhi).
This Hadith encourages us to observe obedience of our Rubb and to spare no effort to desist from all acts of
disobedience in order to achieve the lofty goal of entering Jannah, by Allah's Leave.

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying,
"The people
will be assembled on the Day of Resurrection barefooted, naked and uncircumcised"
. I said, "O Messenger of Allah!
Will the men and the women be together on that Day; looking at one another?'' Upon this Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) said,
"O Aishah, the matter will be too serious for them to look at one another".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith mentions the horrors and torments of the Day of Resurrection which makes its
connection with this chapter obvious. What this chapter, and Ahadith mentioned in it, make clear is that a Muslim
should never be unmindful of the preparations for the Hereafter nor should he ever lose sight of the fact that he has
to appear before Allah on the Day of Resurrection and account for all his actions. In order to save himself from the
humiliation on that Day, he should lead a life of Faith and fear of Allah. Those who do not do so and lead a life free
from fear of Allah and torments of the Hereafter, will have no hesitation in disobeying Allah, which will inevitably
lead them to humiliation, disgrace and heavy punishment in the Hereafter.
