Hadith: Abu Hurairah (RadiyAllahu anhu) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallellahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) recited:
"That Day it (the earth) will reveal its news (about all that happened over it of good or evil).'' (99:4).
Then he (Sallellahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) inquired:
"Do you know what its news are?''
He was told: "Allah and His Messenger know better".
He (Sallellahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said:
"Its news is that it shall bear witness against every slave man and woman they did on its back. It will say:
'You did this and this on such and such day.'
Those will be its news.''
This Hadith makes evident the perfect Omnipotence of Allah by telling us that He will bestow power of speech on the earth and it will bear witness to the acts committed on its surface. It has stern warning for people that however they may try to hide their sins from others, they will not be able to save themselves from Allah and His system of accountability.
