Hadith Explanation

Immersed in Sweat According to Deeds

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The people will sweat on the Day of Resurrection until their sweat penetrates seventy cubits into the earth, then it will come up to their ears.” [Bukhari]

People’s sweat will flow until it drenches the earth, then it will start to rise until it reaches a height that will vary according to their actions. For some, their sweat will reach their ankles, for others it will reach their knees, or their waists, and for some it will reach their mouths, like reins.

Only those who are in the shade of Allah’s Throne will not sweat. O Allah! Grant us shade under Your Throne that day, when there will be no other shade.
