Hadith 9: Man’s feet will not move on the Day of Qiyamah (Resurrection) before he is asked about four things: his life and how he spent it; his body and how he used it; his wealth and how he earned and spent it; and his love for us, the Ahlul Bayt.

Hadith 9

 

لا تزول قدما عبد يوم القيامة حتى يسأل عن أربع: عن عمره فيما أفناه، وعن جسده فيما أبلاه، وعن ماله فيما أنفقه ومن أين كسبه، وعن حبنا أهل البيت.

Man’s feet will not move on the Day of Qiyamah (Resurrection) before he is asked about four things: his life and how he spent it; his body and how he used it; his wealth and how he earned and spent it; and his love for us, the Ahlul Bayt.

 

This hadith is narrated by Ibn ‘Abbas, Abu Barzah and Abu Dharr radiya Llahu ‘anhum.

 

The Hadith of Ibn ‘Abbas

Al Tabarani and Ibn al Maghazili narrate — from al Haytham ibn Khalaf al Duri — Ahmed ibn Muhammad ibn Yazid ibn Sulaym, the mawla (client) of Banu Hashim narrated to us — Hussain ibn al Hassan al Ashqar narrated to me — Hushaym ibn Bashir narrated to us — from Abu Hashim — from Mujahid — from Ibn ‘Abbas who said: “The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said…”[1]

This hadith is munkar (unacceptable) in its additional text at the end.

Al Hussain ibn Hassan al Ashqar is da’if (weak). Some hadith critics have even accused him of lying.

Hushaym ibn Bashir is a mudallis[2] (obfuscates when he narrates). In this hadith, he is narrating with the words ‘‘an (from)’.

 

The Hadith of Abu Barzah

Abu Sa’id al Naqqash narrates — from Ahmed ibn Subayh al Asadial Sari ibn ‘Abdullah al Sulami narrated to us — from Ziyad ibn al Mundhir — from Nafi’ ibn al Harith — from Abu Barzah.[3]

This hadith is munkar (unacceptable). It has the following defects:

 
  1. Nafi’ ibn al Harith is da’if (weak).
  2. Yahya ibn Ma’in regarded Ziyad ibn al Mundhir as a kadhdhab (liar).
  3. Al Sari ibn ‘Abdullah al Sulami is unknown and his narrations are munkarah (unacceptable).[4]
  4. Ahmed ibn Subayh al Asadi is da’if (weak).[5]
 

The Hadith of Abu Dharr

Ibn ‘Asakir narrates — from al Harith ibn Muhammad al Makfuf — Abu Bakr ibn ‘Ayyash narrated to us — from Ma’ruf ibn Kharrabudh — from Abu al Tufayl — from Abu Dharr.[6]

1. Hadith critics have issues (mutakallam fih) regarding Ma’ruf ibn Kharrabudh.

2. Al Dhahabi and Ibn Hajar state that al Harith ibn Muhammad al Makfuf brought forth a batil (false) narration.[7] And then they mentioned this hadith.

I believe he is suspected of the addition in the text.

Al Albani regarded the hadith as batil (false).[8]

Imam al Tirmidhi and others narrated — from Abu Barzah al Aslami who said that the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Man’s feet will not move on the Day of Qiyamah (Resurrection) before he is asked about his life and how he spent it; his knowledge and what he did with it; his wealth and how he earned and spent it; and his body and how he used it.”[9]

Imam al Tirmidhi said the hadith is hassan sahih (fair authentic).

The hadith enjoys shawahid[10] (supporting narrations); however, they do not include the unacceptable addition.

In short, the hadith with its additional text is munkar (unacceptable) and batil (false).
