عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ كُلُّهُمْ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّي اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهٖ قَالَ لَا تَزُولُ قَدَمُ عَبْدٍ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ حَتَّى يُسْأَلَ عَنْ أَرْبَعَةٍ عَنْ عُمُرِهِ فِيمَا أَفْنَاهُ وَ عَنْ شَبَابِهِ فِيمَا أَبْلَاهُ وَ عَنْ مَالِهِ مِنْ أَيْنَ اكْتَسَبَهُ وَ فِيمَا أَنْفَقَهُ وَ عَنْ حُبِّنَا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ

Abu Saeed al-Khudri reports that the Holy Prophet (peace be on him and his progeny) said,

“No person will be able to move a step on the Day of Judgment till he is asked about four things: About his life in what he spent; about his youth in what he passed it; about his wealth how he earned it and how he spent it; and about the love of us, Ahle Bait (peace be on them).”

Reference:

Tafseer al-Tha’labi

Notes:

1)    All the four questions are important but the last one is the most important because on it depends one’s salvation in the hereafter.

2)    Regarding wealth, there are four possibilities:

a)    Earns from haram and spends in haram

b)    Earns from haram but spends in halal

c)    Earns from halal but spends in haram

d)    Earns from halal and spends in halal

        Needless to state, the first three will be destroyed. Only the last one will be saved.

3)            Perhaps someone may ask, that if the love of Ahle Bait (peace be on them) is the most important, then why is it mentioned last? It should have been mentioned first. The answer is pretty simple. It being last shows its importance. Moreover, supported by thousands of other Quranic verses and narrations, we can easily conclude that it is the most important of all actions and beliefs.
