The Worldly gifts that puts ye to Hell

If zakat is not paid, Allah says in Surah Al-Imaran-180 "And let not those who withold of the gifts which Allah hath given them in His Grace, think that it is good for them? Nay, it will be the worse for them, soon shall things which they witheld, be tied to their necks like a twisted collar on the Day of Judgement. To Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is well acquanted with all that ye do."

Abu Hurairah reports that Rasulullah SAW said. Those whom Allah has bestowed upon him worldly gifts, but he did not pay his zakah will on the Day of Judgement his worldly gift would be turned into a fierce snake with two sharp poisonous fangs. The snake will entwine him and says " I am your property, I am your richness".

May Allah protect us all form this form of unimaginable torture....
