Punishment because of a cat

The Beloved of Allah has said, 'I was shown Hell, in which I saw a woman of Bani Israeel being tortured because in the world she had a cat that died of hunger because she kept it tied up without feeding it herself or letting it run loose to find it's own food'. (Mishkat bisharhi Mirqat, Hadith 5341, V9, P198, Dar-ul-Fikr Beirut)

All seven earths

You who use bribery to illegally occupy other people's properties listen! You landlords, tribe leaders and farmers who unjustly occupy other people's farmlands listen! Imam Muslim mentions a warning of Our Beloved Prophet , 'One who unjustly occupies a hand span of someone's land, will be forced to wear a necklace made of the seven earths on the day of judgement'. (Muslim, Hadith 1610, V3, P56, Dar-ul-Kutubul Ilmiyyah Beirut)

Beg for forgiveness

My Dear Islamic Brothers! Fear Allah , repent to Him and beg Him for His mercy and forgiveness, before death lifts you up from your illuminated rooms and comfortable sofas and throws you into a dark grave full of insects and spiders, ask for forgiveness from all those people you have oppressed and please them, return all occupied possessions to their rightful owners and please them. How great you are does not matter, bow in the court of Allah and plead to the weak and poor people that you have oppressed, or else remember, on the day of judgement you might have to give them your virtues and if you do not have virtues, then you might have to take the burden of their sins and enter the Hell fire.

Cause of losing faith

Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Warraq says, 'Being cruel to people often results in losing ones Imaan (faith)'. What will you do if the evil of oppression makes you lose your Imaan and die a disbeliever! Listen! Listen! The 25th to 32nd verses of Sura-tul- Haaqah (part 29) speaks of the disgrace of the disbelievers:

AlaHazrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan translates this verse in his masterpiece translation Kanzul-Imaan as such: - But as for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say, if only I had not been given my book, and was not told my reckoning, if only it had been death, my wealth has not benefited me, my power has gone from me, (The Angels will be told) take him and restrain him, and expose him to the hell fire, and then insert him in a chain of which the length is seventy cubits.
