Qiyamah

The slaughtering of death on the day of Qiyamah

Question

Regarding the following Verse of Surah Naba, verse: 40:

‘Indeed, We have warned you of a near punishment on the Day when a man will observe what his hands have put forth and the disbeliever will say, “Oh, I wish that I were dust’.

 

I’ve heard that in the Akhirah, when all those who are to enter Jannah would have entered therein, Allah Ta’ala will call all of mankind and a ram will be killed to signify that there is no more death and those in Jannah will remain therein and those in Jahannam will remain therein forever. Then the disbelievers will say the above: ‘O! I wish that I were dust!’

Would you please verify this Tafsir and/or Hadith. Read More »

Clarification regarding the narration on houses in Jannah

Question

My question is regarding the below Hadith:

“I guarantee a house on the outskirts of Jannah for one who leaves arguments even if he is right, and a house in the middle of Jannah for one who abandons lies even when joking, and a house in the highest part of Jannah for one who makes his character excellent.”

Is this a Hadith Qudsi, where the pronoun “I” is referring to Allah, because no one but He can guarantee entry into Jannah, not even Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) has narrated that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

He will then reply: “Is this not my Rabb that has manifested before me?”
