Four Questions on the Day of Judgment

Here is a SaHeeH hadeeth about the questions you will have on the Day of Judgment. May Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) allow us to answer these questions with ease. Aameen.

و بهذا الإسناد قال قال رسول الله ص لا يزول قدم عبد يوم القيامة من بين يدي الله عز و جل حتى يسأله عن أربع خصال عمرك فيما أبليته و مالك من أين اكتسبته و أين وضعته و عن حبنا أهل البيت فقال رجل من القوم و ما علامة حبكم يا رسول الله فقال محبة هذا و وضع يده على رأس علي بن أبي طالب ع
