Shade of the Arsh of Allah

Q: I read a Hadith about Allah's shade on the Day of Judgement. What does Allah's shade mean?

A: We have not come across a Hadith which mentions the shade of Allah Ta'ala. However, mention is made in the Hadith regarding the shade of the Arsh of Allah Ta'ala. This refers to the special protection and grace of Allah Ta'ala which he will grant his special servants on the day of Qiyaamat.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
