Hadith Explanation

Jannah Barred For Mistreater

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The one who treats his slaves badly will not enter Jannah.” [Jami Tirmidhi]

People in bondage are perhaps the most vulnerable in society. This hadith makes it clear that those who do not care for the humanity of those who are dependent on them, will not enjoy Allah’s mercy either.

The Arabic word “Malakah” (literally, “in possession”) includes all beings under our possession and care; people as well as animals.

It is, therefore, incumbent upon us to take good care of their needs, such as their food (or fodder), clothing, lodging, their physical well-being and health, as well as their protection from extreme weather conditions.
