(617) What Has Been Related From The Messenger of Allah About The Severe Warning Against Withholding Zakat
Abu Dharr narrated: I came to the Messenger of Allah while he was sitting in the shade of the Ka'bah. He said: He saw me approaching and he said: 'They are lost on the Day of Judgment! By the Lord of the Ka'bah!' He said: I said t myself: Woe is me! Perhaps something has been revealed about me!' He said: So I said: 'Who are they, and may my father and mother be ransomed for you.' So the Messenger of Allah said: 'They are those who have much, except for who says like this, and this, and this and motioned with his hand to his front, and t his right, and to his left.' Then he said: 'By the One in Whose Hand is my soul! No man will die, leaving a camel or a cow that he did not pay Zakat on, except that it will come on the Day of Judgment larger and fatter than it was, they will tread him under their hooves and butt him with their horns, all of them; such that when the last of them has had a turn, the first returns to him, until he is judged before the people.'
