Hadith - An Ignorant Judge


Hadith on types of Judges and the consequences they will face due to their character.

The Messenger of Allah (salAllahu alaihi wasallam) said:

“Judges are of three types, two of them will go to the Hellfire and one type will go to Paradise. The one who knows the truth and judges with it – he is in Paradise. One who knows the truth but doesn’t judge by it, will go to Hellfire. The one who doesn’t know the truth and judges between people with ignorance, will go to the Hellfire.”

[Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi]

What do we learn from this Hadith?

The truth is controlled by Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). He has spelt it out for us in the Shariah teachings. which is the Quran and Sunnah.

If an individual condemns as indicated by his or her own benchmarks of good and bad, as opposed to what Allah has pronounced as right or wrong, at that point that judge is making a decision with obliviousness.

They will face the consequences form their actions for going against Allah’s wishes.

Allah gives people powers in the dunya as a trial and also in order to help others. We shouldn’t abuse this power and work to the best of our abilities and be fair.
