عن قتادة قال: حدثنا أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه أن رجلًا قال: يا نبي الله، كيف يُحشر الكافر على وجهه؟ قال: «أليس الذي أمشاه على الرجلين في الدنيا قادرًا على أن يمشيه على وجهه يوم القيامة» قال قتادة: بلى وعزة ربنا.

Qatādah related: Anas ibn Mālik (may Allah be pleased with him) reported to us: A man said: "O Prophet of Allah, how will the disbelievers be gathered on the Day of Resurrection upon their faces?" He said: "Is He Who is powerful to make them walk on their feet not powerful enough to make them walk upon their faces on the Day of Resurrection?" Qatādah said: "Yes, by the honor of our Lord!"
Sahih/Authentic. - [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Explanation

A man asked the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him): O Prophet of Allah, how will the disbelievers be gathered upon their faces on the Day of Judgment? In reference to the verse that reads: {We will gather [and drag] them on their faces – deaf, dumb and blind} [Surat al-Isrā’: 97]. In reply, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: Is He Who is powerful to make them walk on their feet - i.e., Allah Almighty - not powerful enough to make them walk upon their faces on the Day of Resurrection? Qatādah remarked: Yes! And he swore by honor of Allah Almighty that He is capable of doing that.
