Those under the shade on Judgment Day


عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَوْ عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ سَبْعَةٌ يُظِلُّهُمْ اللَّهُ فِي ظِلِّهِ يَوْمَ لَا ظِلَّ إِلَّا ظِلُّهُ إِمَامٌ عَادِلٌ وَشَابٌّ نَشَأَ بِعِبَادَةِ اللَّهِ وَرَجُلٌ كَانَ قَلْبُهُ مُعَلَّقًا بِالْمَسْجِدِ إِذَا خَرَجَ مِنْهُ حَتَّى يَعُودَ إِلَيْهِ وَرَجُلَانِ تَحَابَّا فِي اللَّهِ فَاجْتَمَعَا عَلَى ذَلِكَ وَتَفَرَّقَا وَرَجُلٌ ذَكَرَ اللَّهَ خَالِيًا فَفَاضَتْ عَيْنَاهُ وَرَجُلٌ دَعَتْهُ امْرَأَةٌ ذَاتُ حَسَبٍ وَجَمَالٍ فَقَالَ إِنِّي أَخَافُ اللَّهَ وَرَجُلٌ تَصَدَّقَ بِصَدَقَةٍ فَأَخْفَاهَا حَتَّى لَا تَعْلَمَ شِمَالُهُ مَا تُنْفِقُ يَمِينُهُ

Hafs bin ‘Asim narrated from Abu Hurairah or Abu Sa’eed that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Seven shall be shaded by Allah under his shade on a day in which there is no shade except His Shade: A just Imam, a young person raised upon worshiping Allah, a man whose heart is attached to the Masjid when he leaves from it until he returns from it, two men who love each other for Allah’s sake, coming together upon that, and parting upon that, a man who remembers Allah in privacy and his eyes swell with tears, a man invited by a woman of status and beauty, but he says, ‘I fear Allah, Mighty and Sublime is He,’ and a man who conceals the charity he gives such that his left hand does not know what his right hand has spent.”

Grade: Sahih (authentic)
Translation adapted from


The seven kinds of Muslims who will have Allah’s shade (protection) in the Hereafter are

  1. Just leaders
  2. Young men who relentlessly worship Allah
  3. Those who are fond of being at the masjid
  4. People who love each other for Allah’s sake, coming together upon that and parting upon that
  5. Men who remember Allah in private and cry doing so
  6. Men invited by good looking women to engage in illicit relations but refused due to fear of Allah, and
  7. Those who give charity in secret

Let us strive to be the ones who attain the mercy and shade of Allah in the Hereafter.
