  • Face to Face : Masrur of Paradise & Maqrur of Fire


  • Without an interpreter

     

    The Messenger 0f Allah (pbuh) said, "On the Day of Judgment, each one of you will stand in front of Allah and there will be neither a veil nor an interpreter between him and Allah, and Allah will ask him, "Did not I give you wealth? Did not I bestow on you My Blessings? Did not I sustain you with My Giving?"

     

    Man will answer, "Yes."

     

    Allah will ask, "Did not I sent My Messenger to you?"

     

    Man will answer, "Yes."

     

    Then Allah will ask,

    "O man! What has made you careless concerning your Lord, the Most Generous?

     

    O man, what did you do to please me?

     

    O man you did not fear me!

     

    O man how did you receive the call of the Messengers?

     

    O man you used to look to what was unlawful although you knew 1 was watching you.

     

    You used to listen to what was forbidden although you knew I heard what you were listening to.

     

    You used to utter what was unlawful although I was there to listen to you.

     

    Was not I there to see you while you were walking to unlawful places (where sins were being committed)?

     

    Was not I there to watch your heart and know your evil desires and intentions?

     

    Did not you deny my existence and My Power over you?"

     

    These were the words told to Masrur while he was being judged, and he could find no answer with to defend himself.

     

    He trembled out of fear because Allah was reckoning him for every small detail of his life. All his deeds were brought against him; on top of them was his disbelief and his murder of those who were calling for the spread of justice, like Maqrur.

     

    Allah said to Masrur, (if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind.

     

    This is what you were guilty of so, your abode is in Hell-fire.

     

    As for Maqrur matters were very different. He died for the sake of defending and trying to spread monotheism.

    As a result he received his book of reckoning with his right hand and this meant that Allah sent him glad-tidings and he was promised to enter Paradise.
