That night Afsana went up to her room and locked the door shut. With tears rolling down her eyes she contemplated the evening that had just passed. Many lessons had been learnt that evening.

20 Rabi’ Al Awwal 1434 | Hadith of the Day | The Ahl-ul-Fadl


The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

“When Allah gathers the creation on the Day of Judgement, a caller will proclaim, ‘Where are Ahl-ul- Fadl?’ (The people of God’s favor). So some people will stand up and they will be few. They will go toward Paradise quickly. So the Angels will meet them and say, ‘We see you going toward Paradise quickly, so who are you?’ So they will say: ‘We are Ahl-ul-Fadl.’ So the Angels will ask about what made them favored over others and they will respond by saying: “If we were oppressed we would be patient, and if we were treated badly we would forgive, and if we were treated ignorantly we expressed forbearance (hilm).’ So it would be said to them, ‘Enter Paradise and how wonderful is the reward of the (good) doers.’”
