Hadith: 17 Jan 2014 (15 Rabi’ul Awwal 1435)

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Usamah bin Zaid (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) said, "A man will be brought on the Day of Resurrection and will be cast into Hell, and his intestines will pour forth and he will go round them as a donkey goes round a millstone. The inmates of Hell will gather round him and say: `What has happened to you, O so-and-so? Were you not enjoining us to do good and forbidding us to do evil?’ He will reply: `I was enjoining you to do good, but was not doing it myself; and I was forbidding you to do evil, but was doing it myself".

[Al-Bukhari Book 04, Chapter 54, Hadith # 489].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Naml Ayat 84 “when you comprehended them not in knowledge, or what (else) was it that you used to do?" This Hadith serves a stern warning for such `Ulama’, preachers so called scholars and reformers of the Ummah whose own conduct is contrary to the sermons they give from the pulpit.
