Khutba: Prepare Answers for The Day of Questioning

The questioning in the grave is something that we all must face. The 3 questions that we all know off, we cannot refrain from answering them.

In this khutba Ustaadh Rayaan gives a stark warning of the questioning we will all face after our deaths. Our hearing, our hearts, our sight will be questioned. And they will speak. So we must examine our answers by examining our deeds.

The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“A servants two feet will not move on the Day of Judgement until he is questioned about four (things):
His youth & how he spent it.
His knowledge & how he acted upon it.
His wealth, how he earned it & how he spent it.
And his body & how he used/wasted it.”

Reported by at-Tirmidhee (2417) and see Saheeh ut-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (1/126).

The First Affair to be Accounted For on the Day of Judgement

 

Abdullaah Ibn Qaratnarrated from Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu `alaihi wassallam) that he said:

 

“The first thing that the slave will be accounted for on the Day of Resurrection will be the prayer – if that is sound then the rest of the deeds will be sound, and if that is corrupt then the rest of the deeds shall be likewise corrupt.”

(At-Tabaraanee in Al-Awsat 1859; Al-Albaanee declared it saheeh in As-Saheehah 1358)
