Seven Under The Shade

In a very beautiful hadith, our beloved Prophet (صلي الله عليه وسلم) said:

“There are seven whom Allah will shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade:

  1. a just ruler;
  2. a youth who grew up in the worship of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic;
  3. a man whose heart is attached to the mosques;
  4. two men who love each other for Allah’s sake, meeting for that and parting upon that;
  5. a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position [for illegal intercourse], but be says: ‘I fear Allah’;
  6. a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity; and
  7. a man who remembered Allah in private and so his eyes shed tears.” [Bukhari and Muslim]
p/s: I really hope that i am amongst those seven. Ameen...
