To make things worse, if you don’t have enough positive energy to give, guess what happens? The same amount of negative energy from that person is transferred to you and immediately uploaded to your spirit! In effect you have just done them an amazing favor!
All because you were not able to hold your tongue for some fleeting momentary pleasure at the expense of misusing and harming your most valuable asset in this world, your brain. Nothing can be a greater self-punishment than this!
Many engage in good deeds, they pray five times a day, fast and give alms and think they will go the hereafter with “full stock” whereas they have accrued so much energetic debt that they will go as totally “bankrupt” and they have no idea…
“Sufficient for one is his tongue as a sin!” (Hadith)
Can you imagine the disappointment and utter misery when one realizes all his accumulated positive energy has been squandered away with gossiping, slandering, judging, and to top it off he has taken loads of negative energy from others without even being aware of it?
Let us contemplate on the following hadith:
Abu Huraira (ra) reported: The Rasul of Allah (saw) said, “Do you know who is bankrupt?” They said, “The one without money or goods is bankrupt.” The Rasul said, “Indeed, the bankrupt of my nation is those who come on the Day of Judgment with prayers, fasting, and charity, but also with insults, slander, consuming wealth, shedding blood, and beating others. The oppressed will each be given from his good deeds. If his good deeds run out before justice is fulfilled, then their sins will be cast upon him and he will be thrown into the hellfire.” [Tirmidhi]
Are debts paid off here or in the afterlife?
Allah is Sari’ul hisab (swift at reckoning)!
Allah settles all accounts instantly!
If one does not receive or pay others’ due physically then the transferal happens energetically; one pays from his stored positive energy or takes the negative energy of the other.
Smaller debts are paid off and settled instantly yet some debts are so great that the transferal continues until the person dies and, in many cases, ends up in hell as a result of this unsettled debt.
Everything in the system is in a state of absolute balance. This is why in Islam we are advised to return even the smallest of gifts with something of equal value.
This was the practice of Rasulullah (saw).
