Jubbul Huzn – A Valley in Jahannum

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said to the Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum): “Seek Allah’s refuge from ‘jubbul huzn’”. Sahaabah asked, “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), what is ‘jubbul huzn?’” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “It is a valley in Jahannum which Jahannum itself seeks protection from it hundred times daily.” Sahaabah (Radhiallahu Anhum) then asked; “Which class of people will be made to enter this valley?” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Those Ulama and Huffaaz who do actions for show.”
