The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi) On the day when all other shade will be gone, Allah will provide His shade for those who give charity and care for the poor. The Muslim’s sacrifice in this life will be their protection on the Day of Judgment.
