| Country : Santoshnagar, Hyderabad, |
Name : Minhajuddin
|Question: I have heard that there will be people, who in Qiyamah, will be without any fear. There will be pulpits of Noor for them. Is this correct as per the Holy Quran and Hadith? When the Day of Judgment will be very frightening? If this is correct, then please give all the references, and if this is not, then what about the person who says such things?|
|Answer: Indeed the Day of Judgment will be a day of great fright, anxiety and difficulties, but Allah Most High will protect those special slaves of Allah Most High who were conscious of Him every moment of their lives and did not fear anybody except Him, from every sorrow and anxiety. There are many verses of the Holy Quran and by many Hadith, which establish that Allah Most High will grant special rewards to His pious and virtuous slaves and will reveal their status before the whole creation. Because of the rewards and benevolence of Allah Most High, those saints and special slaves of Allah Most High will be very happy and the anxiety and tension of Day of Judgment will not trouble them. |
Allah Most High says:
(Even) the Greatest Horror (of the Day of Rising) will not grieve them. Surah Ambiya-103
There is for them the good news (of honour and recognition) in the life of the world, and (also of forgiveness and intercession) in the Hereafter. Surah Yunus-64
From the huge corpus of Hadith, only some are being mentioned as an example:
There is a Hadith in Sunan Abu Dawood:
Translation: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Umar bin Khattab (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Indeed! There are some among the slaves of Allah Most High who are neither Prophets nor martyrs. Because of their status in Day of Judgment, the Prophets and the martyrs will praise them.
The Companions asked: O Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)! Who will they be? The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: They love each other only because of Allah’s mercy, neither because of any personal relationship and neither because of any monetary dealings.
By Allah! Their faces will be very radiant and they will be on pulpits of radiance. When people will be frightened, they will have no fear, when people will be in sorrow, they will have no sorrow and the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) recited this verse:
This Hadith is in Mishkaat Ul Masabeeh, Vol. 2, Pg No. 426 and Zujajatul Masabeeh, Vol. 4, Pg No. 103 and apart from this is also present in the following books of Hadith:

Muhaddith-E-Deccan Abul Hasanaat Syed Abdullah Shah Sahab Naqshbandi Mujaddidi Qadri (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) has recorded a Hadith on the authority of Jame' Tirmidhi, which says that there will be pulpits of radiance for them, the Prophets and martyrs will praise them. Along with this, their garments will also be radiant.
There is a lengthy Hadith in Kanz Ul ‘Ummal, which has the words:
Translation: Allah Most High will place pulpits for them in Day of Judgment, so they will take their place on those pulpits and indeed their garments will be radiant and their faces will be radiant.
Thus, the beloved and pious slaves of Allah Most High will be in great ease. They will be happy on the rewards and grants of Allah Most High. There will be pulpits of radiance for them, their garments will be radiant and their faces will be radiant.
