“The First To Be Burnt In The Fire Are Three…”

Muslim records the hadith of Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The first to be burnt in the fire are three…,” amongst whom are the scholar and the reciter of the Quran who only learnt their knowledge that it may be said of the, ‘He is a scholar’, ‘He is a reciter of the Quran.’ It was indeed said of them and they will be dragged face first into Hellfire.

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah with the words, ‘The first man (whose case) will be decided on the Day of Judgement, will be a man who died as a martyr. He shall be brought forth and Allah will recount His blessings (which He had bestowed upon him) and he will acknowledge them. Then Allah will ask, “What did you do with them?” He will reply, “I fought for Your sake until I died as a martyr.” Allah will say, “You lie. You fought so that you might be called a ‘brave warrior’ and you were called so.” Then a command will be given and he will be dragged on his face and cast into Hell.

And a man who acquired knowledge and taught it and recited the Quran. He will be brought forth and Allah will recount His blessings (which He had bestowed upon him) and he will acknowledge them. Then Allah will ask, “What did you do with them?” He will say, “I acquired knowledge and disseminated it and recited the Quran for your sake.” Allah will say, “You lie. You acquired knowledge so that you might be called ‘a scholar’, and you recited the Quran so that it might be said, ‘He is a Qari,’ and it was said. Then a command will be given and he will be dragged on his face and cast into Hell.

And a man whom Allah had made abundantly rich and had granted every kind of wealth. He will be brought forth and Allah will recount His blessings (which He had bestowed upon him) and he will acknowledge them. Then Allah will ask, “What did you do with them?” He will say, “I spent for Your sake.” Allah will say, “You lie. You did so that it might be said, “He is generous,” and it was said.  Then a command will be given and he will be dragged on his face and cast into Hell.
