The First Thing To Be Judged
Tarikh:Jun 03, 2010
From Abdullah r.a who said: “Rasulullah (peace and blessings be upon him) said meaning: “Shedding of blood will be the first matter about which judgement will be given on the Day of Resurrection.”
A sin is usually associated with order or prohibition. Meaning, not doing what is ordered is sinful and doing what is prohibited is also sinful. That is why non-performing of prayers, fasting, paying zakat, and so on are classified as sinful as the acts of adultery, lying, suicide or killing of other people.
The act of killing, for example, is strictly prohibited by Islam because human beings are honoured by Allah s.w.t. and are given priority more than most of His other creatures.
Allah s.w.t. has said: “And We have certainly honoured the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference.” (Al-Israa: 70)
Muslims may not kill without a concrete reason and whoever has committed it on purpose must immediately repent for the sins of murder will not be spared from the calculation of Allah s.w.t. in the Hereafter except if forgiven by Allah s.w.t.
Allah s.w.t.’s laws will surely take place. Therefore, if one does not get justice (retribution) in this lifetime, the punishment awaits in the Afterlife.
