📖Sahih Muslim 2143 b
Abu Huraira reported from Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) so many ahadith and one of them was this that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: The most wretched person in the sight of Allah on the Day of Resurrection and the worst person and target of His wrath would of the person who is called Malik al-Amlak (the King of Kings) for there is no king but Allah.
- The meaning of this hadith from Sahih Muslim 2143 b is that on the Day of Resurrection, the person who will be most miserable, worst in status, and subjected to Allah’s wrath is the one who claims the title of “Malik al-Amlak” (the King of Kings), as there is no true king but Allah. This highlights the concept of tawheed (monotheism) in Islam, emphasizing that Allah is the ultimate sovereign and no one else has a rightful claim to that title. It serves as a reminder of the importance of recognizing and submitting to the absolute authority of Allah in all matters.
