A man worshipped Allah for 500 years on an Island. All he had to eat and drink was a pomegranate and spring water.
He never disobeyed Allah. Ever.
When he came to meet Allah, Allah said to him: “Enter Paradise by my mercy”.
The man replied: “By my actions, O Lord, by my actions”.
Allah instructed the angels to do muhasabah (lit: to weigh up the man’s actions).
The angels began with the blessing of the eye.
How did the angels weigh up the blessing of the eye?
They said “500 years of worship without disobeying Allah”.
This hadith was mentioned by Shaykh Hamza in a talk entitled Mawlid an-Nabi 2007.
