The value of Islam

وعن أَبُي هُرَيْرَةَ -رَضِيً اللَّه- عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:(تَجِيءُ الأْعْمَالُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَتَجِيءُ الصَّلاةُ فَتَقُولُ يَا رَبِّ أَنَا الصَّلاةُ فَيَقُولُ إِنَّكِ عَلَى خَيْرٍ فَتَجِيءُ الصَّدَقَةُ فَتَقُولُ يَا رَبِّ أَنَا الصَّدَقَةُ فَيَقُولُ إِنَّكِ عَلَى خَيْرٍ ثُمَّ يَجِيءُ الصِّيَامُ فَيَقُولُ أَيْ يَا رَبِّ أَنَا الصِّيَامُ فَيَقُولُ إِنَّكَ عَلَى خَيْرٍ ثُمَّ تَجِيءُ الأَعْمَالُ عَلَى ذَلِكَ فَيَقُولُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِنَّكَ عَلَى خَيْرٍ ثُمَّ يَجِيءُ الإسْلامُ فَيَقُولُ يَا رَبِّ أَنْتَ السَّلامُ وَأَنَا الإسْلامُ فَيَقُولُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِنَّكَ عَلَى خَيْرٍ بِكَ الْيَوْمَ آخُذُ وَبِكَ أُعْطِي فَقَالَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فِي كِتَابِهِ : ( وَمَنْ يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الإسْلامِ دِينًا فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الآخِرَةِ مِنْ الْخَاسِرِينَ ) ) رواه أحمد .

 

Hadrat Abu Hurairah R.A. narrates that Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam is reported to have said, “The actions of a person will present themselves before Allah Ta’ala on the day of Qiyaamah, Salaah will come first and say, “O Rabb, I am Salaah.” Allah Ta’ala will say, “You are upon goodness.” Then charity will present itself and say, “O Rabb, I am Sadaqah.” Allah Ta’ala will say, “You are upon goodness.” Then fasting will present itself and say, “O Rabb, I am Fasting.” Allah Ta’ala will say, “You are upon goodness.” Then other actions (such as Zakaat, Haj, etc.) will present themselves and Allah Ta’ala will respond by saying, “You are (all) upon goodness.” Then Islam will present itself and say, “O Rabb, Your name is Salaam and I am Islam.”  Allah Ta’ala will say, “You are certainly upon goodness, it is because of you that I will take people to task today and punish them, and it is because of you that I will reward people today. Allah Ta’ala states in the Quraan Sharif, “Whoever chooses a Deen other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him, and he will be amongst the losers in the hereafter.”

 

The actions of a person will be presented on the day of Qiyaamah in this manner, that Allah Ta’ala will bestow the good actions a good form which can be understood from some Ahadith, or Allah Ta’ala will present the action and grant it the ability to speak.
