Hadith

Day of distress when the case has been decided

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

Allah’s Apostle (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “On the Day of
Resurrection Death will be brought forward in the shape of a black and
white ram. Then a call maker will call, ‘O people of Paradise!’ Thereupon
they (the people) will stretch their necks and look carefully. The caller
will say, ‘Do you know this?’ They will say, ‘Yes, this is Death.’ By then
all of them will have seen it. Then it will be announced again, ‘O people
of Hell!’ They will stretch their necks and look carefully. The caller will
say, ‘Do you know this?’ They will say, ‘Yes, this is Death.’ And by then
all of them will have seen it. Then it (that ram) will be slaughtered and
the caller will say, ‘O people of Paradise! Eternity for you and no death.
O people of Hell! Eternity for you and no death.”‘ Then the Prophet
(Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam), recited:–

‘And warn them of the Day of distress when the case has been decided, while
(now) they are in a state of carelessness (i.e. the people of the world)
and they do not believe.’ (19.39)
