Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying, "
who accuses his slave of Zina will receive the punishment (Hadd) of slander on the Day of Resurrection, unless the
accusation of Zina was true
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
On the Day of Judgement, the masters of slaves and slave-girls will be exposed to Hadd-ul-Qadfi
Hadd for accusing someone of adultery
) for the reason that they perpetrate all kinds of oppressions on their captives
and their grievances are not redressed. On the Day of Judgement, when Almighty Allah dispenses justice without
any prejudice and favour, He will also do full justice to this oppressed class and those masters, who somehow
escaped the punishment on this account in this world. Thus, this Hadith has a stern warning for those masters who
are carried away by their might and authority and perpetrate oppression on their servants and slaves.
