Hadith Explanation

Exchange of Deeds

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever wronged his brother with regard to his honour or any other matter, should seek his forgiveness today, before there are no longer any dinars or dirhams; and if he has any righteous deeds, they will be taken from him, in accordance with the wrong he did; and if he has no Hasanaat (good deeds), some of the Sayi’aat (bad deeds) of his counterpart will be taken and added to his burden.” [Bukhaari]

When the Day of Resurrection comes, a man’s wealth and capital will be his Hasanaat (good deeds).

If he had wronged any people, they will take from his Hasanaat to the extent that he mistreated them. If he does not have any Hasanaat, or if his Hasanaat run out, then some of their Sayi’aat (bad deeds) will be taken and added to his burden, till all scores are settled.

Then his deeds will be weighed in the Balance!
