The person closest to the Prophet Muhammad on the Day of Judgment ~ Hi all readers! In some previous articles, I have explained some important things about the Day of Judgment, such as signs, reckoning, shirath, and so forth. These are some important things that we must believe in. Of course, we already know that on the Day of Judgment all creatures will gather in one place to get justice from Allah. The atmosphere at that time was very tense. And, the only person who can save them is the Prophet Muhammad.
On the Day of Judgment, the Prophet Muhammad will bow to Allah to ask that all creatures be immediately given justice in accordance with their actions while living in the world. One very important thing that we must not forget is that all beings hope to get his help (shafaat) in order to survive the ferocity that is on the Day of Judgment. Thus, we can conclude that the safest person on the Day of Judgment is the person closest to him.
Of course, we need to wonder, “Who is the closest person to the Prophet Muhammad on the Day of Judgment? How do we get close to him on the Day of Judgment?”
Hadith About the Person Closest to the Prophet Muhammad on the Day of Judgment
If we want to know the answers to the two questions above, then we must read and understand the hadith below;
عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : إِنَّ أَوْلَى النَّاسِ بِيْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَكْثَرُهُمْ عَلَيَّ صَلَاةً
From Anas radliyallahu anhu, that the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Verily the person closest to me on the Day of Judgment is the one who has the most salawat to me.”
All Readers! If we have read and understood the hadith above, surely we already know that the person who is closest to the Prophet Muhammad on the Day of Judgment is the person who has the most salawat to him. The way to get close to him on the Day of Judgment is to often read salawat.
