Burden of Three Pence

AlaHazrat (Alayhir Rahmah) was asked a question about a (supposed) man called Zaid who delayed in paying a debt and made lame excuses without any valid reason. AlaHazrat (Alayhir Rahmah) answered:

"Zaid is a sinner, corrupt, an oppressor, a liar and liable for punishment, what else does he want to be called! If he dies without paying the debt he will have to give the creditors his good deeds. He will have to give 700 Salah with Jama’at for approximately 3 paisas (that he owes). If he runs out of good deeds he will have to carry the burden of their (the creditors) sins and will be thrown into the fire of Hell. This is justice, and Allah does not forgive the rights of others until the one whose right was violated forgives. The debtor must have mercy on himself and become free of the burden of debt. He should not consider his death far from him; he would not be able to bear the torment of fire." [Fatawa Razawiyyah, Vol. 25, Page 69]
