Those who reject Naseehah(advice) and say “Only Allaah can judge me!”

 So many times we hear people saying the likes of “the only person I fear is Allah and only He can judge so if you judge me that’s a sin

It is our job as the Ummah of Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) to carry on his message and guide and warn people. 

Let us turn to the Sunnah for further understanding of this:

Once the Angel Jibreel (alaihis salaam) was sent by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) to destroy a town. Jibreel (alaihis salaam) asked if the pious man in the town, who spent his every moment in the remembrance of Allah, was also meant to be destroyed. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) told him to annihilate that ‘pious’ man first, since he did not bother to guide his people.

Hadith – Al-Tirmidhi #5142, Narrated AbuBakr as-Siddiq 

You people recite this verse, “You who believe, care for yourselves; he who goes astray cannot harm you when you are rightly guided.” I heard Allah’s Messenger say, “When people see something objectionable and do not change it, Allah will soon include them all in His punishment.” 

Hadith – Al-Tirmidhi #5140, Narrated Hudhayfah

The Prophet said, “By Him in Whose hand my soul is, you must enjoin what is reputable and forbid what is disreputable, or Allah will certainly soon send punishment from Himself to you. Then you will make supplication and not receive an answer.”

[Transmitted by Tirmidhi]

Hadith – Qudsi 22

Let not any one of you belittle himself. They said: O Messenger of Allah, how can any one of us belittle himself? He said: He finds a matter concerning Allah about which he should say something, and he does not say [it], so Allah (mighty and sublime be He) says to him on the Day of Resurrection: What prevented you from saying something about such-and-such and such-and-such? He say: [It was] out of fear of people. Then He says: Rather it is I whom you should more properly fear.

The fact that Allaah is the only Judge should make us terrified to even think about doing something wrong. And Allaah has very clearly told us that we will be punished if we do not make any efforts to correct or guide those who we witness committing sin. So when we do point out an error to another person, we are NOT judging them, we are obeying the command of Allah to correct and guide them. This is true Islam.

The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) said:

“Verily the most beloved speech to Allah is the servant’s saying, ‘Subhaanak Allaahumma wa bihamdika wa tabaarakasmuka wa ta’aalaa jad-duka wa laa ilaaha ghayruk.’ (Glorified are you, O Allah, and to you is the praise, Blessed is Your Name and Lofty is your Majesty, there is none worthy of worship other than you.)

The most hated speech to Allah is when a man says to another man, ‘Fear Allah!’ and he replies, ‘Worry about your own self!’ “

[It was reported by Al-Asbahaanee in At-Targheeb (#739), and Sheikh Albani authenticated it in Silsilatul-Ahaadeethis-Saheehah (#2598)]
