Take Care Of Others Rights
Anybody took your rights by force ? Anybody cheated you ? did not pay the money you loaned to him ?When you standing on queue somebody forced you back ? I think this happens quite common in our life . Don’t worry . You will be rewarded by Almighty Allah not only for your patience but also you will be getting Hasanat (good deeds) from the account of who deprived your rights.
Abu Hurairah, (R.A) reported: The Prophet Muhammad, (Peace Be Upon Him), said: "He who has done a wrong affecting his brother's honor or anything else, let him ask his forgiveness today before the time (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) when he will have neither a dinar nor a dirham. If he has done some good deeds, a portion equal to his wrongdoings will be subtracted from them; but if he has no good deeds, he will be burdened with the evil deeds of the one he had wronged in the same proportion." [Al-Bukhari]
Abu Hurairah, (R.A), reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH), said, "Do you know who is the bankrupt?" The bankrupt among us is one who has neither money with him nor any property." He said, "The real bankrupt of my people (Ummah) would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with Salat, Saum, and Sadaqah (charity), but he will find himself bankrupt on that day as he will have exhausted the good deeds) because he reviled others, brought calumny against others, unlawfully devoured the wealth of others, shed the blood of others and beat others; so his good deeds would be credited to the account of those (who suffered at his hand). If his good deeds fall short to clear the account, their sins would be entered in his account and he would be thrown in Hell Fire. (Muslim).
Jabir, (R.A), reported:A Messenger of Allah (PBUH), said: "Beware of injustice, for oppression will be darkness on the Day of Resurrection; and beware of stinginess because it doomed those who were before you. It inclined them to shed blood and treat the unlawful as lawful." [Muslim]
If people wronged one another, the score will be settled between them. If they mistreated one another equally, then there will be no score to settle. If one of them is still owed something by the other, he will take what he is entitled to.
In Sunan at-Tirmidhi it is narrated that 'Aa'ishah said: "A man came and sat in front of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH), and said, 'O Messenger of Allah, I have two slaves who tell me lies, betray and disobey me, and I insult them and beat them. What is my position with regard to them?” The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
'On the Day of Resurrection, their betrayal, disobedience and lying will be measured against your punishment of them. If your punishment is commensurate with their wrongs, then there will be no score to settle. If your punishment of them was less than their sins deserved, then this will count in your favor. If your punishment of them was more than their sins deserved, then the score will be settled against you.' The man turned away and started to weep. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to him, 'Have you not read the words of Allah?' -
“And We shall set up Balances of justice on the Day of Resurrection, then none will be dealt with unjustly in anything. And if there be the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it. And Sufficient are We to take account.” (Holy Qur'an 21:47).
"Allah doth command you To render back your Trusts To those to whom they are due; And when ye judge Between people That ye judge with justice: Verily how excellent Is the teaching which He giveth you! For Allah is He Who heareth And seeth all things." (Holy Qur'an 4:58).
Note: A Muslim - who may be close to Almighty Allah by doing good deeds (like prayer, charity etc) - is still answerable to Almighty Allah - on the Judgement Day - if he/she does a wrong to either a non-muslim or a muslim. This is the summary of the above 'Sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh)'.
