عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ: "يَقْبِضُ اللَّهُ الأَرْضَ، وَيَطْوِي السَّمَوَاتِ بِيَمِينِهِ، ثُمَّ يَقُولُ: أَنَا المَلِكُ، أَيْنَ مُلُوكُ الأَرْضِ".
[صحيح] - [متفق عليه]

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) say: "Allah will grab the earth and roll up the heavens in His right Hand, and then He will say: "I am the King! Where are the kings of the earth?'"
Sahih/Authentic. - [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) informed that on the Day of Judgment Allah Almighty will grab the earth and take the heaven away with His right Hand, and He will then say: I am the King, the Possessor of everything. Where are the kings of the earth? Where is their dominion today? It was gone and vanished and nothing remains but the dominion of Allah, the Exalted. This carries a warning and a reminder to the kings and rulers that their dominion is brief and transient, and the only permanent dominion is that of our Almighty Lord.
