Hadith Explanation

In Shade on the Day of Judgement

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “There are seven whom (Allah) will shade with His shade on the Day when there will be no shade except His: the just ruler; the young man who grows up worshipping his Lord; the man whose heart is attached to the Masjid; two men who love one another for the sake of Allah, meeting and parting for that reason; a man who is invited (to sin) by a woman of high status and beauty, but he says, ‘I fear Allah’; a man who gives in charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives; and a man who remembers Allah when he is alone, and his eyes fill with tears.” [Saheeh Bukhaari]

When people are standing in that vast arena, beneath the harsh glare of the sun, tasting a torment which even the mighty mountains could not bear, a group of the best among them will be at peace, in the shade of the Throne of the Most Merciful, and they will be spared the distress suffered by the rest of mankind.

Who are these people?
