In Sahih Muslim, from Anas, he said: “We were in the company of Allah’s Messenger, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, that he smiled and said: Do you know why I laughed? We said: Allah and His Messenger know best. Thereupon he said: It was because of the (fact that there came to my mind the) talk which the slave of Allah would have with his Lord (on the Day of Judgment). He would say: My Lord, have you not guaranteed me protection against injustice? He would say: Yes. Then the slave of Allah would say: I do not deem valid any witness against me but my own self, and He would say: Well, enough would be the witness of yourself against you and that of the two angels who had been appointed to record your deeds. Then the seal would be set upon his mouth and it would be said to his limbs (hands, feet, eyes, ears…) to speak and they would speak of his deeds. Then the mouth would be made free to talk, he would say (to the hands and feet): Be away, let there be curse of Allah upon you. It was for your safety that I was contending.”
»كنا عند رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فضحك فقال: هل تدرون مما أضحك ؟،قال قلنا: الله ورسوله أعلم . قال: من مخاطبة العبد ربه . يقول: يا رب ! ألم تجرني من الظلم ؟ قال يقول: بلى . قال فيقول: فإني لا أجيز على نفسي إلا شاهدا مني . قال فيقول: كفى بنفسك اليوم عليك شهيدا . وبالكرام الكاتبين شهودا . قال فيختم على فيه . فيقال لأركانه: انطقي . قال فتنطق بأعماله . قال ثم يخلى بينه وبين الكلام . قال فيقول: بعدا لكن وسحقا . فعنكن كنت أناضل«رواه مسلم
So recognize that your eye that you wanted to give pleasure out of the forbidden will bear witness against you on the Day of Resurrection. So, keep it off the prohibited.
After reading the above hadith, i remembered a part from Shaykh Ahmad Dabbagh’s lectures once. Where he said, the eyes, hands, feet, stomach etc are spies set upon you. so do not think for a moment the body you are encased in is YOU. This is why on the day of judgment it will testify against you. It is like undercover cops who go into a drug dealing gangs as new recruits. who over the time deal with the drugs, get inside information and then when the gang leader is least expecting anything to go wrong is suddenly captured! due to the fact that the undercover cop has been building a report against the gang especially its leader. where he goes, what he sees, what he does, when he speaks etc. No one here on earth for example, testifies against himself. Imagine a person in court, who says to the judge don’t worry i testify that i am the one who committed these crimes. Then he goes into great detail explaining what, when, where and how he did the crime. with full account of his actions minute by minute leading up to the crime.
SO be alert!
