"Do you know who is the bankrupt?"

...Asked the Prophet

to the Companions,

They Replied: "A bankrupt is the one who has neither dirham (money) nor wealth."

The Prophet

then said: " The bankrupt of my Ummah is he who would come on the Day of Judgment with prayers, fasting, and zakah; but who had offended one person, slandered another, devoured others' wealth, shed the blood of this person, and beat that person." (Muslim)

"Each one of these people would be given some of the wrongdoer's good deeds. If his good deeds fall short of settling the account, then their sins will be taken from their accounts and thrown into his account, and he would be thrown in the Hellfire.

This hadith is a complete enough reminder to make those who are Muslims by name and who act against Islamic ethics, to be on the alert. Also, we should understand this hadith and keep it in mind in order to avoid being bankrupt and being losers on the Day of Judgment.

Are We fasting for the sake of it? or are we actually trying our best to withdraw from wrong and harmful ways that determine our Akhirah?

In few simple words, the Prophet

taught his Companions and every Muslim who believes in him a great lesson, and gave them tremendously valuable advice as to how to avoid the Hellfire and be a winner on Yawm Al Qiyaamah Subhan'Allah...

The Allah

says in the Qur'an in this regard:

"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved from the Hellfire and admitted to Paradise will win."

(Aal `Imran 3:185)
