Punishment of not paying Zakat
Almighty Allah said, “And those who hoard gold and silver and do not spend it in the way of Allah, give them the tidings of grievous suffering. On the Day it will be heated in the Fire of Hell, then their foreheads, sides, and backs will be scorched by it. (And it will be said) ‘This is what you hoarded for yourselves, so taste them your hoarded treasures”. Surah At-Tawbah: 34-35.
Abu Huraira (R.) Narrated, the Messenger of Allah, (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever Allah has given wealth to, then does not pay his Zakat, a poisonous snake will be created for him on the Day of Resurrection, with two jaws, with which it will twist him on the Day of Resurrection.” He will hold, then he will hold his two jaws and say: I am your wealth, I am your accumulated wealth.
