The Danger of Usurping the Land of Others Unjustly⁣⁣

usurp land

Be precise when you are dealing with land ownership. And, don’t usurp other’s land illegally, even just an inch! Because, this kind of act will make you regret in the Hereafter.

A hadith from Sa’id bin Zaid (may Allah blesses him), that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said,⁣⁣

مَنْ ظَلَمَ قِيدَ شِبْرٍ مِنَ الأَرْضِ طُوِّقَهُ مِنْ سَبْعِ أَرَضِينَ ‏

“Whoever usurps the land of somebody unjustly, his neck will be encircled with it down the seven earths (on the Day of Resurrection)” [Sahih al-Bukhari]⁣⁣.

Brother, no one was able to lift the land all down the seven earth. Let’s avoid this act by being fair and thorough in matters of land ownership.
