Hadis: Aakhirat aur Dunya

Anas bin Malik radi allahu anhu se rivayat hay ki Allah ke Rasool Sallallahu Alayhi wa Ala Aalihi wa Sallam ne farmaya:

Kayamat ke din Ahle Dozakh me se us sakhs ko laya jayega jo Dunya me sab se jyada aasudah tar aur khush hal tha. Pas Dozakh me ek bar gota diya jayega, fir is se pucha jayega ki eh Aadam ke bete! Kya Dunya me tune kabhi Aaram dekha tha? Kya tuzh par kabhi Chain bhi gujra tha? Woh kahe ga ki Allah ki kasam! Aye mere Rab kabhi nahi. Aur Ahle Jannat me se ek Aisa Sakhs laya jaye ga jo Dunya me sab logo se sakht tar taklif me raha tha, Jannat me ekbar gota diya jaye ga, fir isse pucha jayega ki Ay Aadam ke bete! Tune kabhi taklif bhi dekhi hay? Kya tuzh par shiddat aur ranj bhi gujratha? Woh kahe ga ki Allah ki kasam! Muzh par to kabhi taklif nahi gujri aur mene to kabhi shiddat aur sakhti nahi dekhi.

Anas b. Malik reported that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said that one amongst the denizens of Hell who had led a life of ease and plenty amongst the people of the world would be made to dip in Fire only once on the Day of Resurrection and then it would be said to him:

O, son of Adam, did you find any comfort, did you happen to get any material blessing? He would say: By Allah, no, my Lord. And then that person from amongst the persons of the world be brought who had led the most miserable life (in the world) from amongst the inmates of Paradise. and he would be made to dip once in Paradise and it would be said to him. 0, son of Adam, did you face, any hardship? Or had any distress fallen to your lot? And he would say: By Allah, no,0 my Lord, never did I face any hardship or experience any distress.

(Sahih Muslim 2807)

Commentary by Gai Eaton:

If any one were to awaken from a bad dream, full of fear and torment, find himself at home beside his beloved, sunlights streaming through the window, a prospect of golden days before him and all his deepest longings satisfied, for how long would he remember the pain of his dream? On the other hand, if he were to awaken form a dream of delight to find him self in an all too familiar prison cell, awaiting the next session of torture at the hands of merciless inquisitors and quiet without hope, dream-pleasure would melt away in moments. Whether it be sweet or soar, reality takes precedence over dreaming, and the greater reality takes precedence over the lesser.
