The angels brought Maqrur to the Throne and set him behind the
veil of mercy.
Almighty Allah said to him, "O servant, say what you
" Maqrur said, "You are Blessed and Exalted. I am
your humble servant and no one knows my humbleness but you. I am your poor
servant and no one knows my poverty but you. I am your weak servant and no one
knows my weakness but you. I sought refuge with you from my humbleness. So you
enhanced me with knowledge and monotheism. I sought refuge with you from my
poverty. So you enriched me with celebrating Your Praise. I sought refuge with you
from my weakness. So you strengthened me with Islam. I am humble, poor and weak
within myself. However, I am noble, rich and strong by your sustenance. O
Allah, I came with my sins and wrongdoings but I did not find them in my book
Allah, the Almighty, said, '7 kept it secret for you in the
worldly me, and I forgive you today. We accepted your repentance and Forgave
all your sins and wrongdoings. We changed your bad deeds into good ones as a
result of your sincere repentance."
Masrur prostrated himself before Allah while he was crying.
Allah, the most exalted, announced, "Glorified and
Exalted be I above all that which they associate as partners with Me! I am the Rich
(Free of all wants). He who associates partners with Allah should take his
reward from these partners as Allah has nothing for him but the Hell-fire.
The scene was tremendous. All the books of reckoning exposed
what they had done. Also, all intentions were recorded and registered. What
sort of book is this that leaves neither a small thing nor a great thing but
has it recorded with numbers!
Angels began to judge everybody according to his mind, knowledge
and circumstances. Humankind and Jinn sought the intercession of the Prophets
and the angels. Allah the Almighty called everybody to prostrate. The believers
prostrated, but when the unbelievers tried to do so they could not.
At that moment it became clear that the Hell-tire was
kindled and prepared for the unbelievers.
The angels started to set up as-Sirat (the Path). It is
extended above the Hell-tire and at its end there is Paradise. It seemed to the
believers to be a wide bridge that could be crossed easily by Allah's Mercy. As
for the unbelievers it seemed to be like a hair.
