Punishment for not discharging Zakah


Is this narration authentic?

ما من صاحب كنز لا يؤدي زكاته إلا أحمي عليه في نار جهنم فيجعل صفائح فيكوى بها جنباه وجبينه حتى يحكم الله بين عباده



Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 987)



The owner of [gold/silver/wealth] who does not discharge the Zakah, will witness his wealth heated and made into sheets [on the day of Qiyamah]. His sides and forehead will then be branded until Allah Ta’ala passes judgement between His bondsmen.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
