Selected Hadith Regarding [Jannat (Paradise) & Jahannam (Hell)]

Jannat (Paradise)

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 21:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “When the people of Paradise will enter Paradise and the people of Hell will go to Hell, ALLAH [S.W.T] will order those who have had faith equal to the weight of a grain of mustard seed to be taken out from Hell. So they will be taken out but (by then) they will be blackened (charred). Then they will be put in the river of Haya’ (rain) or Hayat (life) (the Narrator is in doubt as to which is the right term), and they will revive like a grain that grows near the bank of a flood channel. Don’t you see that it comes out yellow and twisted?”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 35:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “The person who participates in (Holy battles) in ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostles (P.B.U.T), will be recompensed by ALLAH [S.W.T] either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a Martyr). Had I not found it difficult for my followers, then I would not remain behind any sariya going for Jihad and I would have loved to be Martyred in ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Cause and then made alive, and then Martyred and then made alive, and then again Martyred in HIS Cause.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 44:

Narrated Talha bin ‘Ubaidullah (R.A):

 A man from Najd with unkempt hair came to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and we heard his loud voice but could not understand what he was saying, till he came near and then we came to know that he was asking about Islam. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “You have to offer prayers perfectly five times in a day and night (24 hours).” The man asked, “Is there any more (praying)?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “No, but if you want to offer the Nawafil prayers (you can).” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] further said to him: “You have to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan.” The man asked, “Is there any more fasting?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “No, but if you want to observe the Nawafil fasts (you can).” Then ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] further said to him, “You have to pay the Zakat (obligatory charity).” The man asked, “Is there any thing other than the Zakat for me to pay?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] replied, “No, unless you want to give alms of your own.” And then that man retreated saying, “By ALLAH [S.W.T]! I will neither do less nor more than this.” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “If what he said is true, then he will be successful (i.e. he will be granted Paradise).”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 3: Knowledge, Number 56:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 While the Prophet was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, “When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] continued his talk, so some people said that ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] had not heard it. When the Prophet [S.A.W.S] finished his speech, he said, “Where is the questioner, who enquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?” The Bedouin said, “I am here, O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S].” Then the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday).” The Bedouin said, “How will that be lost?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday.)”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 3: Knowledge, Number 86:

Narrated Asma (R.A):

 I came to ‘Aisha (R.A) while she was praying, and said to her, “What has happened to the people?” She pointed out towards the sky. (I looked towards the Mosque), and saw the people offering the prayer. ‘Aisha (R.A) said, “Subhan ALLAH.” I said to her, “Is there a sign?” She nodded with her head meaning, “Yes.” I, too, then stood (for the prayer of eclipse) till I became (nearly) unconscious and later on I poured water on my head. After the prayer, the Prophet [S.A.W.S] Praised and Glorified ALLAH [S.W.T] and then said, “Just now at this place I have seen what I have never seen before, including Paradise and Hell. No doubt it has been inspired to me that you will be put to trials in your graves and these trials will be like the trials of Masiah-ad-dajjal or nearly like it (the sub narrator is not sure which expression Asma’ (R.A) used). You will be asked, ‘What do you know about this man (the Prophet Muhammad [S.A.W.S])?’ Then the faithful believer (or Asma’ (R.A) said a similar word) will reply, ‘He is Muhammad ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] who had come to us with clear evidences and guidance and so we accepted his teachings and followed him. And he is Muhammad [S.A.W.S].’ And he will repeat it thrice. Then the Angels (P.B.U.T) will say to him, ‘Sleep in peace as we have come to know that you were a faithful believer.’ On the other hand, a hypocrite or a doubtful person will reply, ‘I do not know, but I heard the people saying something and so I said it.’ (the same).”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 4: Ablutions, Number 184:

Narrated Asma’ bint Abu Bakr (R.A):

 I came to ‘Aisha (R.A) the wife of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] during the solar eclipse. The people were standing and offering the prayer and she was also praying. I asked her, “What is wrong with the people?” She beckoned with her hand towards the sky and said, “Subhan ALLAH.” I asked her, “Is there a sign?” She pointed out, “Yes.” So I, too, stood for the prayer till I fell unconscious and later on I poured water on my head. After the prayer, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] Praised and Glorified ALLAH [S.W.T] and said, “Just now I have seen something which I never saw before at this place of mine, including Paradise and Hell. I have been inspired (and have understood) that you will be put to trials in your graves and these trials will be like the trials of Ad-dajjal, or nearly like it (the sub narrator is not sure of what Asma’ (R.A) said). Angels (P.B.U.T) will come to every one of you and ask, ‘What do you know about this man?’ A believer will reply, ‘He is Muhammad [S.A.W.S], ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle, and he came to us with self-evident truth and guidance. So we accepted his teaching, believed and followed him.’ Then the Angels (P.B.U.T) will say to him to sleep in peace as they have come to know that he was a believer. On the other hand a hypocrite or a doubtful person will reply, ‘I do not know but heard the people saying something and so I said the same.’

LORD of this perfect call (of not ascribing partners to YOU) and of the regular prayer which is going to be established!

Narrated Sahl bin Sad As-Sa’idi (R.A):

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and the pagans faced each other and started fighting. When ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] returned to his camp and when the pagans returned to their camp, somebody talked about a man amongst the Companions (R.A) of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] who would follow and kill with his sword any pagan going alone. He said, “Nobody did his job (i.e. fighting) so properly today as that man.” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “Indeed, he is amongst the people of the (Hell) Fire.” A man amongst the people said, “I shall accompany him (to watch what he does)” Thus he accompanied him, and wherever he stood, he would stand with him, and wherever he ran, he would run with him. Then the (brave) man got wounded seriously and he decided to bring about his death quickly. He planted the blade of the sword in the ground directing its sharp end towards his chest between his two breasts. Then he leaned on the sword and killed himself. The other man came to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and said, “I testify that you are ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S].” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] asked, “What has happened?” He replied, “(It is about) the man whom you had described as one of the people of the (Hell) Fire. The people were greatly surprised at what you said, and I said, ‘I will find out his reality for you.’ So, I came out seeking him. He got severely wounded and hastened to die by slanting the blade of his sword in the ground directing its sharp end towards his chest between his two breasts. Then he eased on his sword and killed himself.” Then ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “A man may seem to the people as if he were practicing the deeds of the people of Paradise while in fact he is from the people of the Hell (Fire), another may seem to the people as if he were practicing the deeds of the people of Hell (Fire), while in fact he is from the people of Paradise.”

 That heard ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] saying, “We are the last but will be the foremost to enter Paradise).” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “He who obeys me, obeys ALLAH [S.W.T], and he who disobeys me, disobeys ALLAH [S.W.T]. He who obeys the chief, obeys me, and he who disobeys the chief, disobeys me. The Imam is like a shelter for whose safety the Muslims should fight and where they should seek protection. If the Imam orders people with righteousness and rules justly, then he will be rewarded for that, and if he does the opposite, he will be responsible for that.”

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] guarantees him who strives in HIS Cause and whose motivation for going out is nothing but Jihad in HIS Cause and belief in HIS Word, that HE will admit him into Paradise (if Martyred) or bring him back to his dwelling place, whence he has come out, with what he gains of reward and booty.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 54: Beginning of Creation, Number 430:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Mus’ud (R.A):

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S], the true and truly inspired said, “(The matter of the Creation of) a human being is put together in the womb of the mother in forty days, and then he becomes a clot of thick blood for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for a similar period. Then ALLAH [S.W.T] sends an Angel (P.B.U.H) who is ordered to write four things. He is ordered to write down his (i.e. the new creature’s) deeds, his livelihood, his (date of) death, and whether he will be blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul is breathed into him. So, a man amongst you may do (good deeds till there is only a cubit between him and Paradise and then what has been written for him decides his behavior and he starts doing (evil) deeds characteristic of the people of the (Hell) Fire. And similarly a man amongst you may do (evil) deeds till there is only a cubit between him and the (Hell) Fire, and then what has been written for him decides his behavior, and he starts doing deeds characteristic of the people of Paradise.”

Are these lofty mansions for the Prophets (P.B.U.T) which nobody else can reach? The Prophet [S.A.W.S] replied,” No! “By ALLAH [S.W.T] in WHOSE Hands my life is, these are for the men who believed in ALLAH [S.W.T] and also believed in the Apostles (P.B.U.T).”

When HE created him, HE said to him, “Go and greet that group of Angels (P.B.U.T), and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring.” So, Adam (P.B.U.H) said (to the Angels (P.B.U.T)), As-Salamu Alaikum (i.e. Peace be upon you). The Angels (P.B.U.T) said, “As-salamu Alaika wa Rahmatu-l-lahi” (i.e. Peace and ALLAH’s Mercy be upon you). Thus the Angels (P.B.U.T) added to Adam (P.B.U.H)’s salutation the expression, ‘Wa Rahmatu-l-lahi,’ Any person who will enter Paradise will resemble Adam (P.B.U.H) (in appearance and figure).

How many are the people of the Fire?’ ALLAH [S.W.T] will reply: ‘From every one thousand, take out nine-hundred-and ninety-nine.’ At that time children will become hoary headed, every pregnant female will have a miscarriage, and one will see mankind as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but dreadful will be the Wrath of ALLAH [S.W.T].” The companions (R.A) of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] asked, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! Who is that (excepted) one?” He said, “Rejoice with glad tidings; one person will be from you and one-thousand will be from gog and magog.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] further said, “By HIM in WHOSE Hands my life is, hope that you will be one-fourth of the people of Paradise.” We shouted, “ALLAHU Akbar!” He added, “I hope that you will be one-third of the people of Paradise.” We shouted, “ALLAHU Akbar!” He said, “I hope that you will be half of the people of Paradise.” We shouted, “ALLAHU Akbar!” He further said, “You (Muslims) (compared with non Muslims) are like a black hair in the skin of a white ox or like a white hair in the skin of a black ox (i.e. your number is very small as compared with theirs).”

YOU promised me not to disgrace me on the Day of Resurrection; and what will be more disgraceful to me than cursing and dishonoring my father?’ Then ALLAH [S.W.T] will say (to him):’ ‘I have forbidden Paradise for the disbelievers.” Then he will be addressed, ‘O Abraham (P.B.U.H)! Look! What is underneath your feet?’ He will look and there he will see a Dhabh (an animal,) blood-stained, which will be caught by the legs and thrown in the (Hell) Fire.”

He told me that it was a Punishment sent by ALLAH [S.W.T] on whom he wished, and ALLAH [S.W.T] made it a source of Mercy for the believers, for if one in the time of an epidemic plague stays in his country patiently hoping for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Reward and believing that nothing will befall him except what ALLAH [S.W.T] has written for him, he will get the reward of a Martyr.”

Then it (that ram) will be slaughtered and the caller will say, ‘O people of Paradise! Eternity for you and no death. O people of Hell! Eternity for you and no death.”‘ Then the Prophet [S.A.W.S] recited: — ‘And warn them of the Day of distress when the case has been decided, while (now) they are in a state of carelessness (i.e. the people of the world) and they do not believe.’ (19.39)

He then said, “There is none among you, and no Created soul but has his place written for him either in Paradise or in the Hell-Fire, and also has his happy or miserable fate (in the Hereafter) written for him.” A man said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! Shall we depend upon what is written for us and give up doing (good) deeds? For whoever among us is destined to be fortunate (in the Hereafter), will join the fortunate peoples and whoever among us is destined to be miserable will do such deeds as are characteristic of the people who are destined to misery.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Those who are destined to be happy (in the Hereafter) will find it easy and pleasant to do the deeds characteristic of those destined to happiness, while those who are to be among the miserable (in the Hereafter), will find it easy to do the deeds characteristic of those destined to misery.” Then he recited: ‘As for him who gives (in charity) and keeps his duty to ALLAH and believes in the Best reward from ALLAH, WE will make smooth for him the path of ease. But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self sufficient, and gives the lie to the Best reward from ALLAH, WE will make smooth for him the path for evil.’ (92.5-10)

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 9, Book 87: Interpretation of Dreams, Number 171:

Narrated Samura bin Jundub (R.A):

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] very often used to ask his companions (R.A), “Did anyone of you see a dream?” So dreams would be narrated to him by those whom ALLAH [S.W.T] wished to tell. One morning the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Last night two persons came to me (in a dream) and woke me up and said to me, ‘Proceed!’ I set out with them and we came across a man lying down, and behold, another man was standing over his head, holding a big rock. Behold, he was throwing the rock at the man’s head, injuring it. The rock rolled away and the thrower followed it and took it back. By the time he reached the man, his head returned to the normal state. The thrower then did the same as he had done before. I said to my two companions (P.B.U.T), ‘Subhan ALLAH! Who are these two persons?’ They said, ‘Proceed!’ So we proceeded and came to a man lying flat on his back and another man standing over his head with an iron hook, and behold, he would put the hook in one side of the man’s mouth and tear off that side of his face to the back (of the neck) and similarly tear his nose from front to back and his eye from front to back. Then he turned to the other side of the man’s face and did just as he had done with the other side. He hardly completed this side when the other side returned to its normal state. Then he returned to it to repeat what he had done before. I said to my two companions (P.B.U.T), ‘Subhan ALLAH! Who are these two persons?’ They said to me, ‘Proceed!’ So we proceeded and came across something like a Tannur (a kind of baking oven, a pit usually clay-lined for baking bread).” I think the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “In that oven there was much noise and voices.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “We looked into it and found naked men and women, and behold, a flame of fire was reaching to them from underneath, and when it reached them, they cried loudly. I asked them, ‘Who are these?’ They said to me, ‘Proceed!’ And so we proceeded and came across a river.” I think he said, “…. red like blood.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “And behold, in the river there was a man swimming, and on the bank there was a man who had collected many stones. Behold, while the other man was swimming, he went near him. The former opened his mouth and the latter (on the bank) threw a stone into his mouth whereupon he went swimming again. He returned and every time the performance was repeated, I asked my two companions (P.B.U.T), ‘who are these (two) persons?’ They replied, ‘Proceed! Proceed!’ And we proceeded till we came to a man with a repulsive appearance, the most repulsive appearance, you ever saw a man having! Beside him there was a fire and he was kindling it and running around it. I asked my companions (P.B.U.T), ‘Who is this (man)?’ They said to me, ‘Proceed! Proceed!’ So we proceeded till we reached a garden of deep green dense vegetation, having all sorts of spring colors. In the midst of the garden there was a very tall man and I could hardly see his head because of his great height, and around him there were children in such a large number as I have never seen. I said to my companions (P.B.U.T), ‘Who is this?’ They replied, ‘Proceed! Proceed!’ So we proceeded till we came to a majestic huge garden, greater and better than I have ever seen! My two companions (P.B.U.T) said to me, ‘Go up and I went up’ The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “So we ascended till we reached a city built of gold and silver bricks and we went to its gate and asked (the gatekeeper) to open the gate, and it was opened and we entered the city and found in it, men with one side of their bodies as handsome as the handsomest person you have ever seen, and the other side as ugly as the ugliest person you have ever seen. My two companions (P.B.U.T) ordered those men to throw themselves into the river. Behold, there was a river flowing across (the city), and its water was like milk in whiteness. Those men went and threw themselves in it and then returned to us after the ugliness (of their bodies) had disappeared and they became in the best shape.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] further added, “My two companions (Angels (P.B.U.T)) said to me, ‘This place is the Eden Paradise, and that is your place.’ I raised up my sight, and behold, there I saw a palace like a white cloud! My two companions (P.B.U.T) said to me, ‘That (palace) is your place.’ I said to them, ‘May ALLAH bless you both! Let me enter it.’ They replied, ‘As for now, you will not enter it, but you shall enter it (one day) I said to them, ‘I have seen many wonders tonight. What does all that mean which I have seen?’ They replied, ‘We will inform you: As for the first man you came upon whose head was being injured with the rock, he is the symbol of the one who studies the Qur’an and then neither recites it nor acts on its orders, and sleeps, neglecting the enjoined prayers. As for the man you came upon whose sides of mouth, nostrils and eyes were torn off from front to back, he is the symbol of the man who goes out of his house in the morning and tells so many lies that it spreads all over the world. And those naked men and women whom you saw in a construction resembling an oven, they are the adulterers and the adulteresses, and the man whom you saw swimming in the river and given a stone to swallow, is the eater of usury (Riba) and the bad looking man whom you saw near the fire kindling it and going round it, is Malik (P.B.U.H), the gatekeeper of Hell and the tall man whom you saw in the garden, is Abraham (P.B.U.H) and the children around him are those children who die with Al-Fitra (the Islamic Faith).” The narrator added: Some Muslims asked the Prophet [S.A.W.S], “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! What about the children of pagans?” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] replied, “And also the children of pagans.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “My two companions (P.B.U.T) added, ‘The men you saw half handsome and half ugly were those persons who had mixed an act that was good with another that was bad, but ALLAH [S.W.T] Forgave them.'”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 9, Book 92: Holding Fast to the Qur’an and Sunnah, Number 385:

Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (R.A):

 Some Angels (P.B.U.T) came to the Prophet [S.A.W.S] while he was sleeping. Some of them said, “He is sleeping.” Others said, “His eyes are sleeping but his heart is awake.” Then they said, “There is an example for this companion of yours.” One of them said, “Then set forth an example for him.” Some of them said, “He is sleeping.” The others said, “His eyes are sleeping but his heart is awake.” Then they said, “His example is that of a man who has built a house and then offered therein a banquet and sent an inviter (messenger) to invite the people. So whoever accepted the invitation of the inviter, entered the house and ate of the banquet, and whoever did not accept the invitation of the inviter, did not enter the house, nor did he eat of the banquet.” Then the Angels (P.B.U.T) said, “Interpret this example to him so that he may understand it.” Some of them said, “He is sleeping.” The others said, “His eyes are sleeping but his heart is awake.” And then they said, “The houses stands for Paradise and the call maker is Muhammad [S.A.W.S]; and whoever obeys Muhammad [S.A.W.S], obeys ALLAH [S.W.T]; and whoever disobeys Muhammad [S.A.W.S], disobeys ALLAH [S.W.T]. Muhammad [S.A.W.S] separated the people (i.e. through his message, the good is distinguished from the bad, and the believers from the disbelievers).”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 9, Book 93: Oneness, Uniqueness of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Tawheed), Number 507:

Narrated Anas (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] will gather the believers on the Day of Resurrection in the same way (as they are gathered in this life), and they will say, ‘Let us ask someone to intercede for us with our LORD that HE may relieve us from this place of ours.’ Then they will go to Adam (P.B.U.H) and say, ‘O Adam (P.B.U.H)! Don’t you see the people (people’s condition)? ALLAH [S.W.T] created you with HIS OWN Hands and ordered HIS Angels (P.B.U.T) to prostrate before you, and taught you the names of all the things. Please intercede for us with our LORD so that HE may relieve us from this place of ours.’ Adam (P.B.U.H) will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking’ and mention to them the mistakes he had committed, and add, “But you’d better go to Noah (P.B.U.H) as he was the first Apostle sent by ALLAH [S.W.T] to the people of the Earth.’ They will go to Noah (P.B.U.H) who will reply, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking,’ and mention the mistake which he made, and add, ‘but you’d better go to Abraham (P.B.U.H), Khalil Ar-Rahman.’ They will go to Abraham (P.B.U.H) who will reply, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking,’ and mention to them the mistakes he made, and add, ‘But you’d better go to Moses (P.B.U.H), a slave whom ALLAH [S.W.T] gave the Torah and to whom HE spoke directly’ They will go to Moses (P.B.U.H) who will reply, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking,’ and mention to them the mistakes he made, and add, ‘You’d better go to Jesus (P.B.U.H), ALLAH [S.W.T]’s slave and HIS Apostle and HIS Word (Be: And it was) and a soul created by HIM.’ They will go to Jesus (P.B.U.H) who will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking, but you’d better go to Muhammad [S.A.W.S] whose sins of the past and the future had been forgiven (by ALLAH [S.W.T]).’ So they will come to me and I will ask the permission of my LORD, and I will be permitted (to present myself) before HIM. When I see my LORD, I will fall down in (prostration) before HIM and HE will leave me (in prostration) as long as HE wishes, and then it will be said to me, ‘O Muhammad [S.A.W.S]! Raise your head and speak, for you will be listened to; and ask, for you will be granted (your request); and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted.’ I will then raise my head and Praise my LORD with certain Praises which HE has taught me, and then I will intercede. ALLAH [S.W.T] will allow me to intercede (for a certain kind of people) and will fix a limit whom I will admit into Paradise. I will come back again, and when I see my LORD (again), I will fall down in prostration before HIM, and HE will leave me (in prostration) as long as HE wishes, and then HE will say, ‘O Muhammad [S.A.W.S]! Raise your head and speak, for you will be listened to; and ask, for you will be granted (your request); and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted.’ I will then Praise my LORD with certain Praises which HE has taught me, and then I will intercede. ALLAH [S.W.T] will allow me to intercede (for a certain kind of people) and will fix a limit to whom I will admit into Paradise, I will return again, and when I see my LORD, I will fall down (in prostration) and HE will leave me (in prostration) as long as HE wishes, and then HE will say, ‘O Muhammad [S.A.W.S]! Raise your head and speak, for you will be listened to, and ask, for you will be granted (your request); and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted.’ I will then Praise my LORD with certain Praises which HE has taught me, and then I will intercede. ALLAH [S.W.T] will allow me to intercede (for a certain kind of people) and will fix a limit to whom I will admit into Paradise. I will come back and say, ‘O my LORD! None remains in Hell (Fire) but those whom Qur’an has imprisoned therein and for whom eternity in Hell (Fire) has become inevitable.’ “The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “There will come out of Hell (Fire) everyone who says: ‘La ilaha illal-lah,’ and has in his heart good equal to the weight of a barley grain. Then there will come out of Hell (Fire) everyone who says: ‘ La ilaha illal-lah,’ and has in his heart good equal to the weight of a wheat grain. Then there will come out of Hell (Fire) everyone who says: ‘La ilaha illal-lah,’ and has in his heart good equal to the weight of an atom (or a smallest ant).”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 9, Book 93: Oneness, Uniqueness of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Tawheed), Number 519:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Whoever believes in ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S] offers prayers perfectly and fasts (the month of) Ramadan then it is incumbent upon ALLAH [S.W.T] to admit him into Paradise, whether he emigrates for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Cause or stays in the land where he was born.” They (the Companions (R.A) of the Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! Should we not inform the people of that?” He said, “There are one-hundred degrees in Paradise which ALLAH [S.W.T] has prepared for those who carry on Jihad in HIS Cause. The distance between every two degrees is like the distance between the sky and the Earth, so if you ask ALLAH [S.W.T] for anything, ask HIM for the al-Firdaus, for it is the last part of Paradise and the highest part of Paradise, and at its top there is the Throne of BENEFICENT, and from it gush forth the rivers of Paradise.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 9, Book 93: Oneness, Uniqueness of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Tawheed), Number 532c:

Narrated ‘Ata’ bin Yazid Al-Laithi (R.A) on the authority of Abu Huraira (R.A):

 The people said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle (R.A)! Shall we see our LORD on the Day of Resurrection?” The Prophet (R.A) said, “Do you have any difficulty in seeing the moon on a full moon night?” They said, “No, O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle (R.A).” He said, “Do you have any difficulty in seeing the sun when there are no clouds?” They said, “No, O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle (R.A).” He said, “So you will see HIM, like that. ALLAH [S.W.T] will gather all the people on the Day of Resurrection, and say, ‘Whoever Worshiped something (in the world) should follow (that thing),’ so, whoever Worshiped the sun will follow the sun, and whoever Worshiped the moon will follow the moon, and whoever used to Worship certain (other false) deities, he will follow those deities. And there will remain only this nation with its good people (or its hypocrites). (The sub-narrator, Ibrahim (R.A) is in doubt.) ALLAH [S.W.T] will come to them and say, ‘I am your LORD.’ They will (deny HIM and) say, ‘We will stay here till our LORD comes, for when our LORD comes, we will recognize HIM.’ So ALLAH [S.W.T] will come to them in HIS appearance which they know, and will say, ‘I am your LORD.’ They will say, ‘YOU are our LORD,’ so they will follow HIM. Then a bridge will be laid across Hell (Fire)’ I and my followers will be the first ones to go across it and none will speak on that Day except the Apostles (P.B.U.T). And the invocation of the Apostles (P.B.U.T) on that Day will be, ‘O ALLAH [S.W.T], save! Save!’ In Hell (or over The Bridge) there will be hooks like the thorns of As-Sa’dan (thorny plant). Have you seen As-Sa’dan? ” They replied, “Yes, O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]!” He said, “So those hooks look like the thorns of As-Sa’dan, but none knows how big they are except ALLAH [S.W.T]. Those hooks will snap the people away according to their deeds. Some of the people will stay in Hell (be destroyed) because of their (evil) deeds, and some will be cut or torn by the hooks (and fall into Hell) and some will be punished and then relieved. When ALLAH [S.W.T] has finished HIS Judgments among the people, HE will take whomever HE will out of Hell through HIS Mercy. HE will then order the Angels (P.B.U.T) to take out of the Fire all those who used to Worship none but ALLAH [S.W.T] from among those whom ALLAH [S.W.T] wanted to be Merciful to and those who testified (in the world) that none has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T]. The Angels (P.B.U.T) will recognize them in the Fire by the marks of prostration (on their foreheads), for the Fire will eat up all the human body except the mark caused by prostration as ALLAH [S.W.T] has forbidden the Fire to eat the mark of prostration. They will come out of the (Hell) Fire, completely burnt and then the water of life will be poured over them and they will grow under it as does a seed that comes in the mud of the torrent. Then ALLAH [S.W.T] will finish the Judgments among the people, and there will remain one man facing the (Hell) Fire and he will be the last person among the people of Hell to enter Paradise. He will say, ‘O my LORD! Please turn my face away from the fire because its air has hurt me and its severe heat has burnt me.’ So he will invoke ALLAH [S.W.T] in the way ALLAH [S.W.T] will wish him to invoke, and then ALLAH [S.W.T] will say to him, ‘If I grant you that, will you then ask for anything else?’ He will reply, ‘No, by YOUR Power, (Honor) I will not ask YOU for anything else.’ He will give his LORD whatever promises and covenants ALLAH [S.W.T] will demand. So ALLAH [S.W.T] will turn his face away from Hell (Fire). When he will face Paradise and will see it, he will remain quiet for as long as ALLAH [S.W.T] will wish him to remain quiet, then he will say, ‘O my LORD! Bring me near to the gate of Paradise.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] will say to him, ‘Didn’t you give your promises and covenants that you would never ask for anything more than what you had been given? Woe on you, O Adam (P.B.U.H)’s son! How treacherous you are!’ He will say, ‘O my LORD,’ and will keep on invoking ALLAH [S.W.T] till HE says to him, ‘If I give what you are asking, will you then ask for anything else?’ He will reply, ‘No, by YOUR (Honor) Power, I will not ask for anything else.’ Then he will give covenants and promises to ALLAH [S.W.T] and then ALLAH [S.W.T] will bring him near to the gate of Paradise. When he stands at the gate of Paradise, Paradise will be opened and spread before him, and he will see its splendor and pleasures whereupon he will remain quiet as long as ALLAH [S.W.T] will wish him to remain quiet, and then he will say, O my LORD! Admit me into Paradise.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] will say, ‘Didn’t you give your covenants and promises that you would not ask for anything more than what you had been given?’ ALLAH [S.W.T] will say, ‘Woe on you, O Adam (P.B.U.H)’s son! How treacherous you are! ‘ The man will say, ‘O my LORD! Do not make me the most miserable of YOUR Creation,’ and he will keep on invoking ALLAH [S.W.T] till ALLAH [S.W.T] will laugh because of his sayings, and when ALLAH [S.W.T] will laugh because of him, HE will say to him, ‘Enter Paradise,’ and when he will enter it, ALLAH [S.W.T] will say to him, ‘Wish for anything.’ So he will ask his LORD, and he will wish for a great number of things, for ALLAH [S.W.T] HIMSELF will remind him to wish for certain things by saying, ‘(Wish for) so-and-so.’ When there is nothing more to wish for, ALLAH [S.W.T] will say, ‘This is for you, and its equal (is for you) as well.” ‘Ata’ bin Yazid (R.A) added: Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (R.A) who was present with Abu Huraira (R.A), did not deny whatever the latter said, but when Abu Huraira (R.A) said that ALLAH [S.W.T] had said, “That is for you and its equal as well,” Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (R.A) said, “And ten times as much, O Abu Huraira (R.A)!” Abu Huraira (R.A) said, “I do not remember, except his saying, ‘That is for you and its equal as well.'” Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (R.A) then said, “I testify that I remember the Prophet [S.A.W.S] saying, ‘That is for you, and ten times as much.”” Abu Huraira (R.A) then added, “That man will be the last person of the people of Paradise to enter Paradise.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 9, Book 93: Oneness, Uniqueness of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Tawheed), Number 532s:

Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (R.A):

 We said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! Shall we see our LORD on the Day of Resurrection?” He said, “Do you have any difficulty in seeing the sun and the moon when the sky is clear?” We said, “No.” He said, “So you will have no difficulty in seeing your LORD on that Day as you have no difficulty in seeing the sun and the moon (in a clear sky).” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] then said, “Somebody will then announce, ‘Let every nation follow what they used to Worship.’ So the companions of the cross will go with their cross, and the idolators (will go) with their idols, and the companions of every god (false deities) (will go) with their god, till there remain those who used to Worship ALLAH [S.W.T], both the obedient ones and the mischievous ones, and some of the people of the Scripture. Then Hell will be presented to them as if it were a mirage. Then it will be said to the Jews, “What did you use to Worship?’ They will reply, ‘We used to Worship Ezra (P.B.U.H), the son of ALLAH [S.W.T].’ It will be said to them, ‘You are liars, for ALLAH [S.W.T] has neither a wife nor a son. What do you want (now)?’ They will reply, ‘We want YOU to provide us with water.’ Then it will be said to them ‘Drink,’ and they will fall down in Hell (instead). Then it will be said to the Christians, ‘What did you use to Worship?’ They will reply, ‘We used to Worship Messiah (P.B.U.H), the son of ALLAH [S.W.T].’ It will be said, ‘You are liars, for ALLAH [S.W.T] has neither a wife nor a son. What do you want (now)?’ They will say, ‘We want YOU to provide us with water.’ It will be said to them, ‘Drink,’ and they will fall down in Hell (instead). When there remain only those who used to Worship ALLAH [S.W.T] (Alone), both the obedient ones and the mischievous ones, it will be said to them, ‘What keeps you here when all the people have gone?’ They will say, ‘We parted with them (in the world) when we were in greater need of them than we are today, we heard the call of one proclaiming, ‘Let every nation follow what they used to Worship,’ and now we are waiting for our LORD.’ Then the ALMIGHTY will come to them in a shape other than the one which they saw the first time, and HE will say, ‘I am your LORD,’ and they will say, ‘You are not our LORD.’ And none will speak to HIM then but the Prophets (P.B.U.T), and then it will be said to them, ‘Do you know any sign by which you can recognize HIM?’ They will say. ‘The Shin,’ and so ALLAH [S.W.T] will then uncover HIS Shin whereupon every believer will prostrate before HIM and there will remain those who used to prostrate before HIM just for showing off and for gaining good reputation. These people will try to prostrate but their backs will be rigid like one piece of a wood (and they will not be able to prostrate). Then the bridge will be laid across Hell.” We, the Companions (R.A) of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! What is the bridge?’ He said, “It is a slippery (bridge) on which there are clamps and (Hooks like) a thorny seed that is wide at one side and narrow at the other and has thorns with bent ends. Such a thorny seed is found in Najd and is called As-Sa’dan. Some of the believers will cross the bridge as quickly as the wink of an eye, some others as quick as lightning, a strong wind, fast horses or she-camels. So some will be safe without any harm; some will be safe after receiving some scratches, and some will fall down into Hell (Fire). The last person will cross by being dragged (over the bridge).” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “You (Muslims) cannot be more pressing in claiming from me a right that has been clearly proved to be yours than the believers in interceding with ALMIGHTY for their (Muslim) brothers on that Day, when they see themselves safe. They will say, ‘O ALLAH! (Save) our brothers (for they) used to pray with us, fast with us and also do good deeds with us.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] will say, ‘Go and take out (of Hell) anyone in whose heart you find faith equal to the weight of one (gold) Dinar.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] will forbid the Fire to burn the faces of those sinners. They will go to them and find some of them in Hell (Fire) up to their feet, and some up to the middle of their legs. So they will take out those whom they will recognize and then they will return, and ALLAH [S.W.T] will say (to them), ‘Go and take out (of Hell) anyone in whose heart you find faith equal to the weight of one half Dinar.’ They will take out whomever they will recognize and return, and then ALLAH [S.W.T] will say, ‘Go and take out (of Hell) anyone in whose heart you find faith equal to the weight of an atom (or a smallest ant), and so they will take out all those whom they will recognize.” Abu Sa’id (R.A) said: If you do not believe me then read the Holy Verse:– ‘Surely! ALLAH wrongs not even of the weight of an atom (or a smallest ant) but if there is any good (done) HE doubles it.’ (4.40) The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “Then the Prophets and Angels (P.B.U.T) and the believers will intercede, and (last of all) the ALMIGHTY (ALLAH [S.W.T]) will say, ‘Now remains MY Intercession. HE will then hold a handful of the Fire from which HE will take out some people whose bodies have been burnt, and they will be thrown into a river at the entrance of Paradise, called the water of life. They will grow on its banks, as a seed carried by the torrent grows. You have noticed how it grows beside a rock or beside a tree, and how the side facing the sun is usually green while the side facing the shade is white. Those people will come out (of the River of Life) like pearls, and they will have (golden) necklaces, and then they will enter Paradise whereupon the people of Paradise will say, ‘These are the people emancipated by the BENEFICENT. HE has admitted them into Paradise without them having done any good deeds and without sending forth any good (for themselves).’ Then it will be said to them, ‘For you is what you have seen and its equivalent as well.'”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 9, Book 93: Oneness, Uniqueness of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Tawheed), Number 532v:

Narrated Anas (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “The believers will be kept (waiting) on the Day of Resurrection so long that they will become worried and say, “Let us ask somebody to intercede far us with our LORD so that HE may relieve us from our place. Then they will go to Adam (P.B.U.H) and say, ‘You are Adam (P.B.U.H), the father of the people. ALLAH [S.W.T] created you with HIS OWN Hand and made you reside in HIS Paradise and ordered HIS Angels (P.B.U.T) to prostrate before you, and taught you the names of all things will you intercede for us with your LORD so that HE may relieve us from this place of ours? Adam (P.B.U.H) will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking.’ He will mention his mistakes he had committed, i.e., his eating off the tree though he had been forbidden to do so. He will add, ‘Go to Noah (P.B.U.H), the first Prophet sent by ALLAH [S.W.T] to the people of the Earth.’ The people will go to Noah (P.B.U.H) who will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking’ He will mention his mistake which he had done, i.e., his asking his LORD without knowledge.’ He will say (to them), ‘Go to Abraham (P.B.U.H), Khalil Ar-Rahman.’ They will go to Abraham (P.B.U.H) who will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking. He would mention three words by which he told a lie, and say (to them). ‘Go to Moses (P.B.U.H), a slave whom ALLAH [S.W.T] gave the Torah and spoke to, directly and brought near HIM, for conversation.’ They will go to Moses (P.B.U.H) who will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking. He will mention his mistake he made, i.e., killing a person, and will say (to them), ‘Go to Jesus (P.B.U.H), ALLAH [S.W.T]’s slave and HIS Apostle, and a soul created by HIM and HIS Word.’ (Be: And it was.) They will go to Jesus (P.B.U.H) who will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking but you’d better go to Muhammad [S.A.W.S] the slave whose past and future sins have been forgiven by ALLAH [S.W.T].’ So they will come to me, and I will ask my LORD’s permission to enter HIS House and then I will be permitted. When I see HIM I will fall down in prostration before HIM, and HE will leave me (in prostration) as long as HE will, and then HE will say, ‘O Muhammad [S.A.W.S], lift up your head and speak, for you will be listened to, and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted, and ask (for anything) for it will be granted:’ Then I will raise my head and Glorify my LORD with certain Praises which HE has taught me. ALLAH [S.W.T] will put a limit for me (to intercede for a certain type of people) I will take them out and make them enter Paradise.” (Qatada (R.A) said: I heard Anas (R.A) saying that), the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “I will go out and take them out of Hell (Fire) and let them enter Paradise, and then I will return and ask my LORD for permission to enter HIS House and I will be permitted. When I will see HIM I will fall down in prostration before HIM and HE will leave me in prostration as long as HE will let me (in that state), and then HE will say, ‘O Muhammad [S.A.W.S], raise your head and speak, for you will be listened to, and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted, and ask, your request will be granted.'” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] added, “So I will raise my head and Glorify and Praise HIM as HE has taught me. Then I will intercede and HE will put a limit for me (to intercede for a certain type of people). I will take them out and let them enter Paradise.” (Qatada (R.A) added: I heard Anas (R.A) saying that) the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, ‘I will go out and take them out of Hell (Fire) and let them enter Paradise, and I will return for the third time and will ask my LORD for permission to enter HIS house, and I will be allowed to enter. When I see HIM, I will fall down in prostration before HIM, and will remain in prostration as long as HE will, and then HE will say, ‘Raise your head, O Muhammad [S.A.W.S], and speak, for you will be listened to, and intercede, for your intercession will be accepted, and ask, for your request will be granted.’ So I will raise my head and Praise ALLAH [S.W.T] as HE has taught me and then I will intercede and HE will put a limit for me (to intercede for a certain type of people). I will take them out and let them enter Paradise.” (Qatada (R.A) said: I heard Anas (R.A) saying that) the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “So I will go out and take them out of Hell (Fire) and let them enter Paradise, till none will remain in the Fire except those whom Qur’an will imprison (i.e., those who are destined for eternal life in the fire).” The narrator then recited the Verse:– “It may be that your LORD will raise you to a Station of Praise and Glory.’ (17.79) The narrator added: This is the Station of Praise and Glory which ALLAH [S.W.T] has promised to your Prophet [S.A.W.S].

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] said: The Fast is for ME and I will give the reward for it, as he (the one who observes the fast) leaves his sexual desire, food and drink for MY Sake. Fasting is a screen (from Hell) and there are two pleasures for a fasting person, one at the time of breaking his fast, and the other at the time when he will meet his LORD. And the smell of the mouth of a fasting person is better in ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sight than the smell of musk.”

 Once the Prophet [S.A.W.S] was preaching while a bedouin was sitting there. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “A man from among the people of Paradise will request ALLAH [S.W.T] to allow him to cultivate the land ALLAH [S.W.T] will say to him, ‘Haven’t you got whatever you desire?’ He will reply, ‘yes, but I like to cultivate the land (ALLAH [S.W.T] will permit him and) he will sow the seeds, and within seconds the plants will grow and ripen and (the yield) will be harvested and piled in heaps like mountains. On that ALLAH [S.W.T] will say (to him), “Take, here you are, O son of Adam (P.B.U.H), for nothing satisfies you.’ “On that the bedouin said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! Such man must be either from Quraish or from Ansar, for they are farmers while we are not.” On that ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] smiled.

He replied: Jihad in the Cause of ALLAH [S.W.T].

He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) remarked: Verily, ALLAH [S.W.T] is Graceful and HE loves Grace. Pride is disdaining the truth (out of self-conceit) and contempt for the people.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 48, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0205:

It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira (R.A):

We participated in the Battle of Hunain along with the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]. He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said about a man who claimed to be a Muslim that he was one of the denizens of the Fire (of Hell). When we were in the thick of the battle that man fought desperately and was wounded. It was said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], the person whom you at first called as the denizen of Fire fought desperately and died. Upon this the Apostle of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]) remarked: He was doomed to the Fire (of Hell). Some men were on the verge of doubt (about his fate) when it was said: That he was not dead but fatally wounded. When it was night he could not stand the (pain of his) wound and killed himself. The Apostle [S.A.W.S] was informed of that. He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) observed: ALLAH is Great, I bear testimony to the fact that I am the servant of ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Messenger. He then commanded Bilal (R.A) to announce to the people that none but a Muslim would enter Paradise. Verily ALLAH [S.W.T] helps this faith even by a sinful person.

Upon this the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] remarked: Nay, not so verily I have seen him in the Fire for the garment or cloak that he had stolen from the booty, Then the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: Umar (R.A) son of Khattab, go and announce to the people that none but the believers shall enter Paradise. He (‘Umar b. Khattab (R.A)) narrated: I went out and proclaimed: Verily none but the believers would enter Paradise.

A person said to him: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], even if it is something insignificant? He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) replied: (Yes) even if it is the twig of the arak tree.

He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: Don’t surrender your possession to him. He (the inquirer) said: If he fights me? He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) remarked: Then fight (with him). He (the inquirer) again said: What do you think if I am killed? He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) observed: You would be a Martyr. He (the inquirer) said: What do you think of him (Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]) If I kill him. He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: he would be in the Fire.

Suhaib (R.A) reported:

 The Apostle of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] saying: When those deserving of Paradise would enter Paradise, the BLESSED and the EXALTED would ask: Do you wish ME to give you anything more? They would say: Hast THOU not brightened our faces? Hast THOU not made us enter Paradise and saved us from Fire? He (the narrator) said: HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would lift the Veil, and of things given to them nothing would he dearer to them than the Sight of their LORD, the MIGHTY and the GLORIOUS.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 82, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0355:

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (R.A) reported:

 Verily the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: ALLAH [S.W.T] will admit into Paradise those deserving of Paradise, and HE will admit whom HE wishes out of HIS Mercy, and admit those condemned to Hell into the Fire (of Hell). He would then say: See, he whom you find having as much faith in his heart as a grain of mustard, bring him out. They will then be brought out burned and turned to charcoal, and would be cast into the river of life, and they would sprout as does a seed in the silt carried away by flood. Have you not seen that it comes out yellow (fresh) and intertwined?

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 82, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0357:

It is reported by Abu Sa’id (R.A):

 That the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: The (permanent) inhabitants of the Fire are those who are doomed to it, and verily they would neither die nor live in it (al-Qur’an, 20.47; 87.13). But the people whom the Fire would afflict (temporarily) on account of their sins, or so said (the narrator) “on account of their misdeeds,” He would cause them to die till they would be turned into charcoal. Then they would be granted intercession and would be brought in groups and would be spread on the rivers of Paradise and then it would be said: O inhabitants of Paradise, pour water over them; then they would sprout forth like the sprouting of seed in the silt carried by flood. A man among the people said: (It appears) as if the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] lived in the steppe.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 83, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0365:

Abu Dharr (R.A) reported:

 That ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: I know the last of the inhabitants of Paradise to enter it and the last of the inhabitants of Hell to come out of it. He is a man who would be brought on the Day of Resurrection and it will be said: Present his minor sins to him, and withhold from him his serious Sins. Then the minor sins would be placed before him, and it would be said: On such and such a day you did so and so and on such and such a day you did so and so. He would say: Yes. It will not be possible for him to deny, while he would be afraid lest serious sins should be presented before him. It would be said to him: In place of every evil deed you will have good deed he will say: My LORD! I have done things I do not see here. I indeed saw the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] laugh till his front teeth were exposed.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 83, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0367:

It is reported on the authority of Abu Zubair (R.A):

 That he heard from Jabir b ‘Abdullah (R.A), who was asked about the arrival (of people on the Day of Resurrection). He said. We would come on the Day of Resurrection like this, like this, and see carefully that which concerns “elevated people”. He (the narrator) said: Then the people would be summoned along with their idols whom they Worshiped, one after another. Then our LORD would come to us and say: Whom are you waiting for? They would say: We are waiting for our LORD. HE would say: I am your LORD. They would say: (We are not sure) till we gaze at THEE, and HE would manifest HIMSELF to them smilingly, and would go along with them and they would follow HIM; and every person, whether a hypocrite or a believer, would be endowed with a light, and there would be spikes and hooks on the bridge of the Hell, which would catch hold of those whom ALLAH [S.W.T] willed. Then the light of the hypocrites would be extinguished, and the believers would secure salvation. And the first group to achieve it would comprise seventy thousand men who would have the brightness of full moon on their faces, and they would not be called to account. Then the people immediately following them would have their faces as the brightest stars in the heaven. This is how (the groups would follow one after another). Then the stage of intercession would come, and they (who are permitted to intercede) would intercede, till he who had declared: “There is no god but ALLAH [S.W.T]” and had in his heart virtue of the weight of a barley grain would come out of the Fire. They would be then brought in the courtyard of Paradise and the inhabitants of Paradise would begin to sprinkle water over them till they would sprout like the sprouting of a thing in flood water, and their burns would disappear. They would ask their LORD till they would be granted (the bounties) of the world and with it ten more besides it.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 83, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0378:

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported:

 Meat was one day brought to the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] and a foreleg was offered to him, a part which he liked. He sliced with his teeth a piece out of it and said: I shall be the leader of mankind on the Day of Resurrection. Do you know why? ALLAH [S.W.T] would gather in one plain the earlier and the later (of the human race) on the Day of Resurrection. Then the voice of the proclaimer would be heard by all of them and the eyesight would penetrate through all of them and the sun would come near. People would then experience a degree of anguish, anxiety and agony which they shall not be able to bear and they shall not be able to stand. Some people would say to the others: Don’t you see in which trouble you are? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken you? Why don’t you find one who should intercede for you with your LORD? Some would say to the others: Go to Adam (P.B.U.H). And they would go to Adam (P.B.U.H) and say: O Adam (P.B.U.H), Thou art the father of mankind. ALLAH [S.W.T] created thee by HIS own Hand and breathed in thee of HIS spirit and ordered the Angels (P.B.U.T) to prostrate before thee. Intercede for us with thy LORD. Don’t you see in what (trouble) we are? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us? Adam (P.B.U.H) would say: Verily, my LORD is angry, to an extent to which HE had never been angry before nor would HE be angry afterward. Verily, HE forbade me (to go near) that tree and I disobeyed HIM. I am concerned with my own self. Go to someone else; go to Noah (P.B.U.H). They would come to Noah (P.B.U.H) and would say: O Noah (P.B.U.H), Thou art the first of the Messengers (sent) on the earth (after Adam (P.B.U.H)), and ALLAH [S.W.T] named thee as a “Grateful Servant,” intercede for us with thy LORD. Don’t you see in what (trouble) we are? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us? He would say: Verily, my LORD is angry today as HE had never been angry before, and would never be angry afterwards. There had emanated a curse from me with which I cursed my people. I am concerned with only myself, I am concerned only with myself; you better go to Ibrahim (P.B.U.H). They would go to Ibrahim (P.B.U.H) and say: Thou art the Apostle of ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Friend amongst the inhabitants of the earth; intercede for us with thy LORD. Don’t you see in which (trouble) we are? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us? Ibrahim (P.B.U.H) would say to them: Verily, my LORD is today angry as HE had never been angry before and would never be angry afterwards. And (Ibrahim (P.B.U.H)) would mention his lies (and then say): I am concerned only with myself, I am concerned only with myself. You better go to someone else: go to Moses (P.B.U.H). They would come to Moses (P.B.U.H) and say: O Moses (P.B.U.H), Thou art ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger, ALLAH [S.W.T] blessed thee with HIS Messengership and HIS conversation amongst people. Intercede for us with thy LORD. Don’t you see in what (trouble) we are? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us? Moses (P.B.U.H) would say to them: Verily, my LORD is angry as HE had never been angry before and would never be angry afterwards. I, in fact, killed a person whom I had not been ordered to kill. I am concerned with myself, I am concerned with myself. You better go to Jesus (P.B.U.H). They would come to Jesus (P.B.U.H) and would say: O Jesus (P.B.U.H), Thou art the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] and thou conversed with people in the cradle, (thou art) HIS Word which HE sent down upon Mary, and (thou art) the Spirit from HIM; so intercede for us with thy LORD. Don’t you see (the trouble) in which we are? Don’t you see (the misfortune) that has overtaken us? Jesus (P.B.U.H) would say: Verily, my LORD is angry today as HE had never been angry before or would ever be angry afterwards. He mentioned no sin of his. (He simply said:) I am concerned with myself, I am concerned with myself; you go to someone else: better go to Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. They would come to me and say: O Muhammad [S.A.W.S], Thou art the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] and the last of the Apostles (P.B.U.T). ALLAH [S.W.T] has pardoned thee all thy previous and later sins. Intercede for us with thy LORD; don’t you see in which (trouble) we are? Don’t you see what (misfortune) has overtaken us? I shall then set off and come below the Throne and fall down prostrate before my LORD; then ALLAH [S.W.T] would reveal to me and inspire me with some of HIS Praises and Glorifications which HE had not revealed to anyone before me. HE would then say: Muhammad [S.A.W.S], raise thy head; ask and it would be granted; intercede and intercession would be accepted I would then raise my head and say: O my LORD, my people, my people. It would be said: O Muhammad [S.A.W.S], bring in by the right gate of Paradise those of your people who would have no account to render. They would share with the people some other door besides this door. The Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S] then said: By HIM in WHOSE Hand is the life of Muhammad [S.A.W.S], verify the distance between two door leaves of the Paradise is as great as between Mecca and Hajar, or as between Mecca and Busra (379) It is reported on the authority of Abu Huraira (R.A) that there was placed before the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] a cup of soft bread, soup and meat. He took part of the foreleg which he liked most. He sliced (with his teeth) a slice (out of that) and said: I would be the leader of mankind on the Day of Resurrection. He then sliced (that meat) for the second time and said: I am the leader of mankind on the Day of Resurrection. When he saw that his companions (R.A) did not ask him (about this assertion) he said: Why don’t you say: How would that be? They said: How would be it, Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]? He said: People would stand before the LORD of the worlds. And the rest of the Hadith was narrated like the one transmitted by Abu Hayyan (R.A), on the authority of Abu Zur’a (R.A), and in the story of Ibrahim (P.B.U.H), this addition was made. He said and made mention of his words with regard to the star: This is my LORD. And his words with regard to their gods: But the big among them has done that. And his words: I am ailing. He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: By HIM in WHOSE Hand is the life of Muhammad [S.A.W.S] the distance between two leaves of the door from their supporting frames is as the distance between Mecca and Hajar or Hajar and Mecca. I do not remember how he said it (whether Mecca and Hajar or Hajar and Mecca).

Husain b. ‘Abd al-Rahman (R.A) reported:

 I was with Sa’id b. Jubair (R.A) when he said: Who amongst you saw a star shooting last night? I said: It was I; then I said: I was in fact not (busy) in prayer, but was stung by a scorpion (and that is the reason why I was awake and had a glimpse of the shooting star). He said: Then what did you do? I said: I practiced charm. He said: What urged you to do this? I said: (I did this according to the implied suggestion) of the Hadith which al-Shu’ba (R.A) narrated. He said: What did al-Shu’ba (R.A) narrate to you? I said: Buraida b. Husaib al-Aslami (R.A) narrated to us. The charm is of no avail except in case of the (evil influence) of an eye or the sting of a scorpion. He said: He who acted according to what he had heard (from the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) acted rightly, but Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A) narrated to us from the Apostle of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] that he said: There were brought before me the peoples and I saw an Apostle (P.B.U.H) and a small group (of his followers) along with him, another (Apostle (P.B.U.H)) and one or two persons (along with him) and (still another) Apostle (P.B.U.H) having no one with him. When a very large group was brought to me I conceived as if it were my Ummah. Then it was said to me: It is Moses (P.B.U.H) and his people. You should look at the horizon, and I saw a very huge group. It was again said to me: See the other side of the horizon, and there was (also) a very huge group. It was said to me: This is your Ummah, and amongst them there were seventy thousand persons who would be made to enter Paradise without rendering any account and without (suffering) any torment. He then stood up and went to his house. Then the people began to talk about the people who would be admitted to Paradise without rendering any account and without (suffering) any torment. Some of them said: They may be those who (have had the good fortune of living) in the company of the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] and some of them said: They are those who were born in Islam and did not associate anything with ALLAH [S.W.T]. Some people mentioned other things. Thereupon came forth the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] before them and he said: What was that which you were talking about? They informed him. He said: They are those persons who neither practice charm, nor ask others to practice it, nor do they take omens, and repose their trust in their LORD. Upon this ‘Ukkasha b. Mihsan (R.A) stood up and said: Supplicate for me that HE should make me one among them. Upon this he (Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]) said: Thou are one among them. Then another man stood up and said: Supplicate before ALLAH [S.W.T] that HE should make me one among them. Upon this he said: ‘Ukkisha (R.A) has preceded you.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 92, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0430:

Abu Sa’id reported:

 The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: ALLAH [S.W.T], the HIGH and GLORIOUS, would say: O Adam (P.B.U.H)! And he would say: At THY service, at THY beck and call, O LORD, and the good is in THY Hand. ALLAH [S.W.T] would say: Bring forth the group of (the denizens of) Fire. He (Adam (P.B.U.H)) would say: Who are the denizens of Hell? It would be said: They are out of every thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine. He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: It is at this juncture that every child would become white-haired and every pregnant woman would abort and you would see people in a state of intoxication, and they would not be in fact intoxicated but grievous will be the torment of ALLAH [S.W.T]. He (the narrator) said: This had a very depressing effect upon them (upon the Companions (R.A) of the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) and they said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], who amongst us would be (that unfortunate) person (who would be doomed to Hell)? He said: Good tidings for you, yajuj majuj would be those Thousands (who would be the denizens of Hell) and a person (selected for Paradise) would be amongst you. He (the narrator) further reported that he (the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]) again said: By HIM in WHOSE Hand is thy life, I hope that you would constitute one-fourth of the inhabitants of Paradise. We Extolled ALLAH [S.W.T] and we Glorified (HIM). He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) again said: By HIM in WHOSE Hand is my life, I wish you would constitute one-third of the inhabitants of Paradise. We Extolled ALLAH [S.W.T] and Glorified (HIM). He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) again said: By HIM in WHOSE Hand is my life, I hope that you would constitute half of the inhabitants of Paradise. Your likeness among the people is the likeness of a white hair on the skin of a black ox or a strip on the foreleg of an ass.

Thauban (R.A), the freed slave of the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], said:

 While I was standing beside the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] one of the rabbis of the Jews came and said: Peace be upon you, O Muhammad [S.A.W.S]. I pushed him back with a push that he was going to fall. Upon this he said: Why do you push me? I said: Why don’t you say: O Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]? The Jew said: We call him by the name by which he was named by his family. The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: My name is Muhammad [S.A.W.S] with which I was named by my family. The Jew said: I have come to ask you (something). The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: Should that thing be of any benefit to you, if I tell you that? He (the Jew) said: I will lend my ears to it. The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] drew a line with the help of the stick that he had with him and then said: Ask (whatever you like). Thereupon the Jew said: Where would the human beings be on the Day when the earth would change into another earth and the heavens too (would change into other heavens)? The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: They would be in darkness beside the Bridge. He (the Jew) again said: Who amongst people would be the first to cross (this bridge)? He said: They would be the poor amongst the refugees. The Jew said: What would constitute their breakfast when they would enter Paradise? He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) replied: A caul of the fish-liver. He (the Jew) said. What would be their food alter this? He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: A bullock which was fed in the different quarters of Paradise would be slaughtered for them. He (the Jew) said: What would be their drink? He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: They would be given drink from the fountain which is named “Salsabil”. He (the Jew) said: I have come to ask you about a thing which no one amongst the people on the earth knows except an Apostle or one or two men besides him. He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: Would it benefit you if I tell you that? He (the Jew) said: I would lend ears to that. He then said: I have come to ask you about the child. He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: The reproductive substance of man is white and that of woman (i.e. ovum central portion) yellow, and when they have sexual intercourse and the male’s substance (chromosomes and genes) prevails upon the female’s substance (chromosomes and genes), it is the male child that is created by ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Decree, and when the substance of the female prevails upon the substance contributed by the male, a female child is formed by the Decree of ALLAH [S.W.T]. The Jew said: What you have said is true; verily you are an Apostle. He then returned and went away. The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: He asked me about such and such things of which I have had no knowledge till ALLAH [S.W.T] gave me that.

‘Umar b. al-Khattab (R.A) reported:

 The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: When the Mu’adhdhin says:

ALLAH is the Greatest, ALLAH is the Greatest, and one of you should make this response: ALLAH is the Greatest, ALLAH is the Greatest;

(and when the Mu’adhdhin) says: I testify that there is no god but ALLAH, one should respond: I testify that there is no god but ALLAH,

and when he says: I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of ALLAH, one should make a response: I testify that Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is Messenger of ALLAH.

When he (the Mu’adhdhin) says: Come to prayer, one should make a response: There is no might and no power except with ALLAH.

When he (the Mu’adhdhin) says: Come to salvation, one should respond: There is no might and no power except with ALLAH,

and when he (the Mu’adhdhin) says: ALLAH is the Greatest, ALLAH is the Greatest, then make a response: ALLAH is the Greatest, ALLAH is the Greatest.

When he (the Mu’adhdhin) says: There is no god but ALLAH, and he who makes a response from the heart: There is no god but ALLAH.

He will enter Paradise.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 12, Book 4: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Number 0790:

Anas (R.A) reported:

 One day the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] was sitting amongst us that he dozed off. He then raised his head smilingly. We said: What makes you smile Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]? He said: A Sura has just been revealed to me, and then recited: In the name of ALLAH, the COMPASSIONATE, the MERCIFUL. Verily WE have given thee Kauthar (fount of abundance). Therefore turn to thy LORD for prayer and offer sacrifice, and surely thy enemy is cut off (from the good). Then he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: Do you know what Kauthar is? We said: ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Messenger [S.A.W.S] know best. The Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S] said: It (Kauthar) is a canal which my LORD, the EXALTED and GLORIOUS has promised me, and there is an abundance of good in it. It is a cistern and my people would come to it on the Day of Resurrection, and tumblers there would be equal to the number of stars. A servant would be turned away from (among the people gathered there). Upon this I would say: My LORD, he is one of my people, and HE (the LORD) would say: You do not know that he innovated new things (in Islam) after you. Ibn Hujr (R.A) made this addition in the Hadith: “He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) was sitting amongst us in the Mosque, and HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said: (You don’t know) what he innovated after you”.

Ma’dan b. Talha (R.A) reported:

 I met Thauban (R.A), the freed slave. of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], and asked him to tell me about an act for which, if I do it, ALLAH [S.W.T] will admit me to Paradise, or I asked about the act which was loved most by ALLAH [S.W.T]. He gave no reply. I again asked and he gave no reply. I asked him for the third time, and he said: I asked ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] about that and he said: Make frequent prostrations before ALLAH [S.W.T], for you will not make one prostration without raising you a degree because of it, and removing a sin from you, because of it. Ma’dan (R.A) said: That then he met Abu al-Darda’ (R.A) and when he asked him, he received a reply similar to that given by Thauban (R.A).

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 2, Book 15: The Two Festivals (Eids), Number 86:

Narrated Ibn Abbas (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul Hijja).” Then some companions (R.A) of the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Not even Jihad?” He replied, “Not even Jihad, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake) and does not return with any of those things.”

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 28, Book 6: Fasting (Kitab Al-Sawm), Number 2566:

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying: ALLAH [S.W.T] the EXALTED and MAJESTIC said: Every act of the son of Adam (P.B.U.H) is for him, except fasting. It is (exclusively) meant for ME and I (Alone) will reward it. Fasting is a shield. When any one of you is fasting on a day, he should neither indulge in obscene language, nor raise the voice; or if anyone reviles him or tries to quarrel with him he should say: I am a person fasting. By HIM, in WHOSE Hand is the life of Muhammad [S.A.W.S], the breath of the observer of fast is sweeter to ALLAH [S.W.T] on the Day of Judgment than the fragrance of musk. The one who fasts has two (occasions) of joy, one when he breaks the fast he is glad with the breaking of (the fast) and one when he meets his LORD he is glad with his fast.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 28, Book 6: Fasting (Kitab Al-Sawm), Number 2567:

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying: Every (good) deed of the son of Adam (P.B.U.H) would be multiplied, a good deed receiving a tenfold to seven hundredfold reward. ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and MAJESTIC, has said: With the exception of fasting, for it is done for ME and I will give a reward for it, for one abandons his passion and food for MY Sake. There are two occasions of joy for one who fasts, joy when he breaks it, and joy when he meets his LORD, and the breath (of an observer of fast) is sweeter to ALLAH [S.W.T] than the fragrance of musk.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 10, Book 9: Divorce (Kitab Al-Talaq), Number 3572:

AI-Mughira b. Shu’ba (R.A) reported:

 That Sa’d b. ‘Ubada (R.A) said: If I were to see a man with my wife, I would have struck him with the sword, and not with the flat part (side) of it. When ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] heard of that, he said: Are you surprised at Sa’d (R.A)’s jealousy of his honor? By ALLAH [S.W.T], I am more jealous of my honor than he, and ALLAH [S.W.T] is more jealous than I. Because of HIS jealousy ALLAH [S.W.T] has prohibited abomination, both open and secret. And no person is more jealous of his honor than ALLAH [S.W.T], and no persons, is more fond of accepting an excuse than ALLAH [S.W.T], on account of which HE has sent Messengers (P.B.U.T), announcers of glad tidings and warners; and no one is more fond of Praise than ALLAH [S.W.T] on account of which ALLAH [S.W.T] has promised Paradise.

It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira (R.A) who said:

 The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] was asked: What deed could be an equivalent of Jihad in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T], the ALMIGHTY and EXALTED? He answered: You do not have the strength to do that deed. The narrator said: They repeated the question twice or thrice. Every time he answered: You do not have the strength to do it. When the question was asked for the third time, he said: One who goes out for Jihad is like a person who keeps fasts, stands in prayer (constantly), (obeying) ALLAH [S.W.T]’s (behests contained in) the verses (of the Qur’an), and does not exhibit any lassitude in fasting and prayer until the Mujahid returns from Jihad in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED.

He (Abu Sa’id (R.A)) wondered at it and said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], repeat it for me. He (the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]) did that and said: There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. He (Abu Sa’id (R.A)) said: What is that act? He replied: Jihad in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T]! Jihad in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T]!

A man stood up and said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], do you think that if I am killed in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T], my sins will be blotted out from me? The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: Yes, in case you are killed in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T] and you were patient and sincere and you always fought facing the enemy, never turning your back upon him. Then he added: What have you said (now)? (Wishing to have further assurance from him for his satisfaction), he asked (again): Do you think if I am killed in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T], all my sins will be obliterated from me? The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: Yes, it you were patient and sincere and always fought facing the enemy and never turning your back upon him, (all your lapses would be forgiven) except debt. Gabriel (P.B.U.H) has told me this.

 We asked ‘Abdullah (R.A) about the Qur’anic verse: “Think not of those who are slain in ALLAH’s way as dead. Nay, they are alive, finding their sustenance in the presence of their LORD. .” (3.169). He said: We asked the meaning of the verse (from the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) who said: The souls, of the Martyrs live in the bodies of green birds who have their nests in chandeliers hung from the Throne of the ALMIGHTY. They eat the fruits of Paradise from wherever they like and then nestle in these chandeliers. Once their LORD cast a Glance at them and said: Do you want anything? They said: What more shall we desire? We eat the fruit of Paradise from wherever we like. Their LORD asked them the same question thrice. When they saw that they will continue to be asked and not left (without answering the question) they said: O LORD, we wish that THOU mayest return our souls to our bodies so that we may be slain in THY way once again. When HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) saw that they had no need, they were left (to their joy in heaven).

They said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], how is it? He said: One of them fights in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T], the ALMIGHTY and EXALTED and dies a Martyr. Then ALLAH [S.W.T] turns in Mercy to the murderer who embraces Islam, fights in the way of ALLAH [S.W.T], the ALMIGHTY and EXALTED, and dies a Martyr.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 39, Book 20: On Government (Kitab Al-Imara), Number 4673:

It has been narrated on the authority of Sulaimin b. Buraida (R.A) who learnt the tradition from his father. The latter said:

 That the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: The sanctity of the wives of Mujahids is like the sanctity of their mothers for those who sit at home (i.e. do not go out for Jihad). Anyone who stays behind looking after the family of a Mujahid and betrays his trust will be made to stand on the Day of Judgment before the Mujahid who will take away from his meritorious deeds whatever he likes. So what do you think (will he leave anything)?

 The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] sent Busaisah as a scout to see what the caravan of Abu Sufyan was doing. He came (back and met the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S] in his house) where there was nobody except myself and the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]. I do not remember whether he (Hadrat Anas (R.A)) made an exception of some wives (R.A) of the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S] or not and told him the news of the caravan. (Having heard the news), the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] came out (hurriedly), spoke to the people and said: We are in need (of men); whoever has an animal to ride upon ready with him should ride with us. People began to ask him permission for bringing their riding animals which were grazing on the hillocks near Medina. He said: No. (I want) only those who have their riding animals ready. So the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] and his companions (R.A) proceeded towards Badr and reached there forestalling the polytheists (of Mecca). When the polytheists (also) reached there, the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: None of you should step forward to (do) anything unless I am ahead of him. The polytheists (now) advanced (towards us), and the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: Get up to enter Paradise which is equal in width to the heavens and the earth. ‘Umair b. al- Humam al-Ansari (R.A) said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], is Paradise equal in extent to the heavens and the earth? He said: Yes. ‘Umair (R.A) said: My goodness! The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] asked him: What prompted you to utter these words (i.e. my goodness!’)? He said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], nothing but the desire that I be among its residents. He said: Thou art (surely) among its residents. He took out dates from his bag and began to eat them. Then he said: If I were to live until I have eaten all these dates of mine, it would be a long life. (The narrator said): He threw away all the dates he had with him. Then he fought the enemies until he was killed.

The person said: This dog has suffered from thirst as I had suffered from it. He climbed down into the well, filled his shoe with water, then caught it in his mouth until he climbed up and made the dog drink it. So ALLAH [S.W.T] appreciated this act of his and pardoned him. Then (the Companions (R.A) around him) said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], is there for us a reward even for (serving) such animals? He said: Yes, there is a reward for service to every living animal.

He said: By HIM in WHOSE Hand is the life of Muhammad [S.A.W.S], the vessels would outnumber the stars in the sky and its planets shining on a dark cloudless night. These would be the vessels of Paradise. He who drinks out of it (the Cistern) would never feel thirsty. There would flow in it two spouts from Paradise and he who would drink out of it would not feel thirsty; and the distance between its (two corners) is that between ‘Amman and Aila, and its water is whiter than milk and sweeter than honey.

And it would be said: Look towards both of them until there is reconciliation; look toward both of them until there is reconciliation; look towards both of them until there is reconciliation.

Verily, ALLAH [S.W.T] is Odd (HE is ONE, and it is an odd number) and HE loves odd number. And in the narration of Ibn ‘Umar (R.A) (the words are): “He who enumerated them.”

‘Aisha (R.A) reported:

 That ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: He who loves to meet ALLAH [S.W.T], ALLAH [S.W.T] loves to meet him, and he who dislikes to meet ALLAH [S.W.T], ALLAH [S.W.T] abhors to meet him. I (‘Aisha (R.A)) said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S], so far as the feeling of aversion against death is concerned, we all have this feeling. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: It is not that (which you construe), but (this) that when a believer (at the time of death) is given the glad tidings of the Mercy of ALLAH [S.W.T], HIS Pleasure, and of Paradise, he loves to meet ALLAH [S.W.T], and ALLAH [S.W.T] also loves to meet him, and when an unbeliever is given the news of the torment at the Hand of ALLAH [S.W.T], and Hardship to be imposed by HIM, he dislikes to meet ALLAH [S.W.T] and ALLAH [S.W.T] also abhors to meet him.

 The supplication that he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S] made very frequently is this: “O ALLAH, grant us the good in this world and the good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of Hell-Fire.” He (Qatada (R.A)) said: That whenever Anas (R.A) had to supplicate he made this very supplication, and whenever he (intended) to make another supplication he (inserted) this very supplication in that.

ALLAH [S.W.T] is at the back of a servant so long as the servant is at the back of his brother, and he who treads the path in search of knowledge, ALLAH [S.W.T] would make that path easy, leading to Paradise for him and those persons who assemble in the house among the houses of ALLAH [S.W.T] (Mosques) and recite the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T] and they learn and teach the Qur’an (among themselves) there would descend upon them the Tranquility and Mercy would cover them and the Angels (P.B.U.T) would surround them and ALLAH [S.W.T] makes a mention of them in the presence of those near HIM, and he who is slow-paced in doing good deeds, his (high) descent does not make him go ahead.

The denizens of Hell were commanded to get into Hell, and I stood upon the door of Fire and the majority amongst them who entered there was that of women.

Hanzala Usayyidi (R.A), who was amongst the scribes of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] reported:

 I met Abu Bakr (R.A). He said: Who are you? He (Hanzala (R.A)) said: Hanzala (R.A) has turned to be a hypocrite. He (Abu Bakr (R.A)) said: Hallowed be ALLAH, what are you saying? Thereupon he said: I say that when we are in the company of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] we ponder over Hell-Fire and Paradise as if we are seeing them with our very eyes and when we are away from ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] we attend to our wives, our children, our business; most of these things (pertaining to After-life) slip out of our minds. Abu Bakr (R.A) said: By ALLAH [S.W.T], I also experience the same. So I and Abu Bakr (R.A) went to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] and said to him: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], Hanzala (R.A) has turned to be a hypocrite. Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: What has happened to you? I said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], when we are in your company, we are reminded of Hell-Fire and Paradise as if we are seeing them with our own eyes, but whenever we go away from you and attend to our wives, children and business, much of these things go out of our minds. Thereupon ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: By HIM in WHOSE Hand is my life, if your state of mind remains the same as it is in my presence and you are always busy in remembrance (of ALLAH [S.W.T]), the Angels (P.B.U.T) will shake hands with you in your beds and in your paths but, Hanzala (R.A), time should be devoted (to the worldly affairs) and time (should be devoted to prayer and meditation). He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said this thrice.

 That ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said: If a believer were to know the punishment (in Hell) none would have the audacity to aspire for Paradise (but he would earnestly desire to be rescued from Hell), and if a non-believer were to know what is there with ALLAH [S.W.T] as a Mercy none would have been disappointed in regard to Paradise.

By ALLAH [S.W.T], if my LORD takes hold of me, HE would torment me as HE has not tormented anyone else. They did as he had asked them to do. HE (the LORD) said to the earth: Return what you have taken. And he was thus restored to his (original form). HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said to him: What prompted you to do this? He said: My LORD, it was THINE fear or THINE awe, and ALLAH [S.W.T] pardoned him because of this. Abu Huraira (R.A) reported: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying that a woman was thrown into Hell-Fire because of a cat whom she had tied and did not provide it with food nor did she set it free to cat insects of the earth until it died inch by inch. Zuhri (R.A) said: (These two ahidith) show that a person should neither feel confident (of getting into Paradise) because of his deeds, nor should he lose (all hopes) of getting into Paradise.

He would say: My LORD, I do recognize (them). He (the LORD) would say: I concealed them for you in the world. And today I Forgive them. And he would then be given the Book containing (the account of his) good deeds. And so far as the non-believers and hypocrites are concerned, there would be general announcement about them before all Creation telling them that these (people, i.e. non-believers and hypocrites) told a lie about ALLAH [S.W.T].

He would say: By ALLAH [S.W.T], no, my LORD. And then that person from amongst the persons of the world be brought who had led the most miserable life (in the world) from amongst the inmates of Paradise and he would be made to dip once in Paradise and it would be said to him. O, son of Adam (P.B.U.H), did you face, any hardship? or had any distress fallen to your lot? And he would say: By ALLAH [S.W.T], no, O my LORD, never did I face any hardship or experience any distress.

They (the Companions (R.A) of the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], not even thou? Thereupon he said: Not even I, but that ALLAH [S.W.T] wraps me in HIS Mercy, and bear this in mind that the deed loved most by ALLAH [S.W.T] is one which is done constantly even though it is insignificant.

HE (the LORD) would say: Are you well pleased now? They would say: Why should we not be pleased, O LORD, when THOU hast given us what THOU hast not given to any of THY Creatures? HE would, however, say: May I not give you (something) even more excellent than that? And they would say: O LORD, what thing can be more excellent than this? And HE would say: I shall cause MY pleasure to alight upon you and I shall never be afterwards annoyed with you.

They said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] would in these abodes of Apostles (P.B.U.T) others besides them not be able to reach?

 That the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said: “Indeed, in Paradise, there are two gardens, their vessels and all that are in them are of silver. And, there are two gardens, their vessels and all that are in them are of gold. There is nothing between the people and their seeing their LORD except the Cloak of Greatness upon HIS Face in the Garden of Eternity. “And from the chain it is reported from the Prophet [S.A.W.S] he said: “Indeed in Paradise there is a great tent of hollowed pearl, its breadth is sixty miles, in every corner of it is a family, they do not see the others, and the believer goes around to them.”

Jami’ at-Tirmidhi: Book 38: Chapters On the Description of Paradise, Hadith 2748:

Jarir bin ‘Abdullah Al-Bajali (R.A) narrated:

 “We were seated with the Prophet [S.A.W.S] when he looked towards the moon on the night of a full moon and said: “Indeed you shall be placed before your LORD and you shall see HIM as you see this moon. You will see HIM without trouble. So if you are able to keep from becoming overwhelmed from prayer before the rising of the sun and before its setting, then do so.” Then he recited: And Glorify the Praises of your LORD before the setting.”

Jami’ at-Tirmidhi: Book 38: Chapters On the Description of Paradise, Hadith 2752:

Abu Huraira (R.A) narrated:

 That the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: “Do you crowd one another in order to see the moon on the night of a full moon? Do you crowd one another in order to see the sun?” They said: “No.” He said: “So verily, you shall see your LORD as you see the moon on the night of a full moon, you shall not crowd one another to see HIM.”

Jami’ at-Tirmidhi: Book 38: Chapters On the Description of Paradise, Hadith 2772:

Anas bin Malik (R.A) narrated:

 That the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: “Whoever asks ALLAH [S.W.T] for Paradise three times, Paradise says: ‘O ALLAH [S.W.T], admit him into Paradise’, and whoever seeks refuge from the Fire three times, the Fire says: ‘O ALLAH [S.W.T], save him from the Fire.'”

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 123, Book 2: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Hadith 771:

Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A) said:

When the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] stood up for praying at midnight, he said: O ALLAH, be Praise to THEE, THOU art the Light of the heavens and the earth; and to THEE be Praise; THOU are the Maintainer of the heavens and the earth; and to THEE be Praise, THOU art the heavens and the earth and what is between them; THOU art the Truth, and THY Statement is truth; and THY Promise is the truth; and the visitation with THEE is true; and the Paradise is true and the Hell-fire is true and the Hour is true; O ALLAH, to THEE I turned my attention, and by THEE I disputed, and to THEE I brought forth my case, so forgive me my former and latter sins, and my secret and open sins, THOU art my deity, there is no deity but THOU.

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 209, Book 2: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Hadith 1046:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: The best day on which the sun has risen is Friday; on it Adam (P.B.U.H) was created, on it he was expelled (from Paradise), on it his contrition was accepted, on it he died, and on it the Last Hour will take place. On Friday every beast is on the lookout from dawn to sunrise in fear of the Last Hour, but not jinn and men, and it contains a time at which no Muslim prays and asks anything from ALLAH [S.W.T] but HE will give it to him. Ka’b (R.A) said: That is one day every year. So I said: It is on every Friday. Ka’b (R.A) read the Torah and said: The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] has spoken the truth. Abu Huraira (R.A) said: I met Abdullah Ibn Salam (R.A) and told him of my meeting with Ka’b (R.A). Abdullah Ibn Salam (R.A) said: I know what time it is. Abu Huraira (R.A) said: I asked him to tell me about it. Abdullah Ibn Salam (R.A) said: It is at the very end of Friday. I asked: How can it be when the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] has said: “No Muslim finds it while he is praying….” and this is the moment when no prayer is offered. Abdullah Ibn Salam (R.A) said: Has the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] not said: “If anyone is seated waiting for the prayer, he is engaged in the prayer until he observes it.” I said: Yes, it is so.

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 209, Book 2: Prayer (Kitab Al-Salat), Hadith 1047:

Narrated Aws Ibn Aws (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said: Among the most excellent of your days is Friday; on it Adam (P.B.U.H) was created, on it he died, on it the last trumpet will be blown, and on it the shout will be made, so invoke more blessings on me that day, for your blessings will be submitted to me. The people asked: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T], how can it be that our blessings will be submitted to you while your body is decayed? He replied: ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED, has prohibited the earth from consuming the bodies of Prophets (P.B.U.T).

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 1, Book 5: Voluntary Prayers, Hadith 1:

Narrated Umm Habibah (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] as saying: If anyone prays in a day and a night twelve rak’ahs voluntarily (supererogatory prayer), a house will be built from him in Paradise on account of these (rak’ahs).

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 1, Book 26: Knowledge (Kitab Al-Ilm), Hadith 1:

Narrated Kathir Ibn Qays (R.A):

 Kathir Ibn Qays (R.A) said: I was sitting with Abud Darda’ (R.A) in the Mosque of Damascus. A man came to him and said: Abud Darda (R.A), I have come to you from the town of the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] for a tradition that I have heard you relate from the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]. I have come for no other purpose. He said: I heard the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] say: If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, ALLAH [S.W.T] will cause him to travel on one of the roads of Paradise. The Angels (P.B.U.T) will lower their wings in their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge, the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth and the fish in the deep waters will ask forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of the learned man over the devout is like that of the moon, on the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars. The learned are the heirs of the Prophets (P.B.U.T) and the Prophets (P.B.U.T) leave neither dinar nor dirham, leaving only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion.

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 12, Book 26: Knowledge (Kitab Al-Ilm), Hadith 24:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said: If anyone acquires knowledge of things by which ALLAH [S.W.T]’s good pleasure is sought, but acquires it only to get some worldly advantage, he will not experience the arf, i.e. the odor, of Paradise.

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 17, Book 42: Model Behavior of the Prophet (Kitab Al-Sunnah), Hadith 114:

‘Imran b. Husain (R.A) said:

 The Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] was asked: Is it known who are those who will go to paradise and those who will go to hell? He said: Yes. He asked: Then what is the good of doing anything by those who act? He replied: Everyone is helped to do for which he has been created.

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 18, Book 42: Model Behavior of the Prophet (Kitab Al-Sunnah), Hadith 118:

‘A’isha (R.A), mother of the believers, said:

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] was invited to the funeral of a boy who belonged to the Ansar and I said; Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]! This one is blessed, for he has done no evil, nor has he known it. He replied: It may be otherwise, ‘A’isha (R.A), for ALLAH [S.W.T] Created Paradise and Created those who will go to it, and HE Created it for them when they were still in their father’s loins; and HE Created hell and Created those who will go to it, and Created it for them when they were still in their father’s loins.

Sunan Abi Dawud: Chapter 27, Book 42: Model Behavior of the Prophet (Kitab Al-Sunnah), Hadith 158:

Narrated Al-Bara’ Ibn Azib (R.A):

 We went out with the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] accompanying the bier of a man of the Ansar. When we reached his grave, it was not yet dug. So the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] sat down and we also sat down around him as if birds were over our heads. He had in his hand a stick with which he was scratching the ground. He then raised his head and said: Seek refuge with ALLAH [S.W.T] from the punishment in the grave. He said it twice or thrice.

The version of Jabir (R.A) adds here: He hears the beat of their sandals when they go back, and at that moment he is asked: O so and so! Who is your LORD, what is your religion, and who is your Prophet?

Hannad (R.A)’s version says: Two Angels (P.B.U.T) will come to him, make him sit up and ask him: Who is your LORD? He will reply: My LORD is ALLAH [S.W.T]. They will ask him: What is your religion? He will reply: My religion is Islam. They will ask him: What is your opinion about the man who was sent on a mission among you? He will reply: He is the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T]. They will ask: Who made you aware of this? He will reply: I read ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Book, believed in it, and considered it true; which is verified by ALLAH [S.W.T]’s words: “ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Book, believed in it, and considered it true, which is verified by ALLAH [S.W.T]’s words: “ALLAH establishes those who believe with the word that stands firm in this world and the next.”

The agreed version reads: Then a crier will call from Heaven: MY servant has spoken the truth, so spread a bed for him from Paradise, clothe him from Paradise, and open a door for him into Paradise. So some of its air and perfume will come to him, and a space will be made for him as far as the eye can see.

He also mentioned the death of the infidel, saying: His spirit will be restored to his body, two Angels (P.B.U.T) will come to him, make him sit up and ask him: Who is your LORD? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. They will ask him: What is your religion? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. They will ask: Who was the man who was sent on a mission among you? He will reply: Alas, alas! I do not know. Then a crier will call from Heaven: He has lied, so spread a bed for him from Hell, clothe him from Hell, and open for him a door into Hell. Then some of its heat and pestilential wind will come to him, and his grave will be compressed, so that his ribs will be crushed together. Jabir (R.A)’s version adds: One who is blind and dumb will then be placed in charge of him, having a sledge-hammer such that if a mountain were struck with it, it would become dust. He will give him a blow with it which will be heard by everything between the east and the west except by men and jinn, and he will become dust. Then his spirit will be restored to him.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 82, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0361:

Ibn Mas’ud (R.A) reported:

 Verily the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: The last to enter Paradise would be a man who would walk once and stumble once and be burnt by the Fire once. Then when he gets beyond it, he will turn to it and say: Blessed is HE WHO has saved me from thee. ALLAH [S.W.T] has given me something HE has not given to any one of those in earlier or later times. Then a tree would be raised up for him and he will say: O my LORD! Bring me near this tree so that I may take shelter in its shade and drink of its water. ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and GREAT, would say: O son of Adam (P.B.U.H), if I grant you this, you will ask ME for something else. He would say: No, my LORD. And he would promise HIM that he would not ask for anything else. His LORD would excuse him because HE sees what he cannot help desiring; so HE would bring him near it, and he would take shelter in its shade and drink of its water. Afterwards a tree more beautiful than the first would be raised up before him and he would say: O my LORD! bring me near this tree in order that I may drink of its water and take shelter in its shade and I shall not ask THEE for anything else. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: O son of Adam (P.B.U.H), if I bring you near it you may ask me for something else. He would promise HIM that he would not ask for anything else. His LORD will excuse him because HE would see something he cannot help desiring. So HE would bring him near it and he would enjoy its shade and drink its water. Then a tree would be raised up for him at the gate of the Paradise, more beautiful than the first two. He would say: O my LORD! Bring me near this (tree) so that I may enjoy its shade and drink from its water. I shall not ask THEE for anything else. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: O son of Adam (P.B.U.H)! Did you not promise ME that you would not ask ME anything else? He would say: Yes, my LORD, but I shall not ask THEE for anything else. His LORD would excuse him for HE sees something the temptation of which he could not resist. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would bring him near to it, and when HE would bring him near it he would hear the voices of the inhabitants of the Paradise. He would say: O my LORD! Admit me to it. HE ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: O son of Adam (P.B.U.H), what will bring an end to your requests to ME? Will it please you if I give you the whole world and a like one along with it? He will say: O my LORD! art THOU mocking at me, though THOU art the LORD of the worlds? Ibn Mas’ud (R.A) laughed and asked (the hearers): Why don’t you ask me what I am laughing at. They (then) said: Why do you laugh? He said: It is in this way that the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] laughed. They (the Companions (R.A) of the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) asked: Why do you laugh. Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]? He said: On account of the laugh of the LORD of the universe, when he desirer of Paradise) said THOU mocking at me though THOU art the LORD of the worlds? He would say: I am not mocking at you, but I have power to do whatever I will.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 83, Book 1: Faith (Kitab Al Iman), Number 0362:

It is transmitted from Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (R.A) that:

 Verily, the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] said: Amongst the inhabitants of Paradise the lowest in rank will be the person whose face ALLAH [S.W.T] would turn away from the Fire towards the Paradise, and make a shady tree appear before him. He would say: O my LORD! Direct my steps to this tree so that I (should enjoy) its shade; and the rest of the Hadith is like that narrated by Ibn Mas’ud (R.A), but he did not mention: “HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: O son of Adam (P.B.U.H)! What will bring an end to your making requests to ME” to the end of the tradition. In it, he added: ALLAH [S.W.T] will remind him: Ask such and such, and when his expectations would be realized, ALLAH [S.W.T] would say: That is for you, and ten times as much. He said that he would then enter his house and his two wives with large and dark eyes would enter after him. They will say: Praise be to ALLAH, WHO has Created you for us and us for you. He will say: No one has been given the like of what I have been given.

Sahih Muslim: Chapter 1, Book 40: Pertaining To Paradise, Its Description, Its Bounties And Its Intimates (Kitab Al-Jannat Wa Sifat Na’Imiha Wa Ahliha), Number 6780:

Abu Huraira (R.A) reported:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] as saying that: ALLAH [S.W.T] the EXALTED and GLORIOUS, said: I have prepared for MY pious servants which no eye has ever seen, and no ear has ever heard, and no human heart has ever perceived but it is testified by the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T]. He then recited: “No soul knows what comfort has been concealed from them, as a reward for what they did”. (32.17)

 

Jahannam (Hell)

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 15:

Narrated Anas (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of faith:

1. The one to whom ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S] becomes dearer than anything else.

2. Who loves a person and he loves him Only for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake.

3. Who hates to revert to Atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the fire.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 28:

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said: “I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful.” It was asked, “Do they disbelieve in ALLAH [S.W.T]?” (Or are they ungrateful to ALLAH [S.W.T]?) He replied, “They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, ‘I have never received any good from you.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2: Belief, Number 42:

Narrated Anas (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Whoever said, “None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T] and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of a barley grain will be taken out of Hell. And whoever said: “None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T] and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of a wheat grain will be taken out of Hell. And whoever said, “None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH [S.W.T] and has in his heart good (faith) equal to the weight of an atom will be taken out of Hell.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 3: Knowledge, Number 57:

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (R.A):

 Once the Prophet [S.A.W.S] remained behind us in a journey. He joined us while we were performing ablution for the prayer which was over-due. We were just passing wet hands over our feet (and not washing them properly) so the Prophet [S.A.W.S] addressed us in a loud voice and said twice or thrice: “Save your heels from the fire.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 3: Knowledge, Number 110:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “Name yourselves with my name (use my name) but do not name yourselves with my Kunya name (i.e. Abu-l Qasim [S.A.W.S]). And whoever sees me in a dream then surely he has seen me for satan cannot impersonate me. And whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally), then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 6: Menstrual Periods, Number 301:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (R.A):

 Once ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) o ‘Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 8: Prayers, Number 417:

Narrated ‘Itban bin Malik (R.A):

 Who was one of the Companions (R.A) of ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and one of the Ansar’s who took part in the battle of Badr: I came to ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] I have weak eyesight and I lead my people in prayers. When it rains the water flows in the valley between me and my people so I cannot go to their Mosque to lead them in prayer. O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! I wish you would come to my house and pray in it so that I could take that place as a Musalla. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said. “ALLAH willing, I will do so.” Next day after the sun rose high, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] and Abu Bakr (R.A) came and ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] asked for permission to enter. I gave him permission and he did not sit on entering the house but said to me, “Where do you like me to pray?” I pointed to a place in my house. So ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] stood there and said, ‘ALLAHU Akbar’, and we all got up and aligned behind him and offered a two-Rak’at prayer and ended it with Taslim. We requested him to stay for a meal called “Khazira” which we had prepared for him. Many members of our family gathered in the house and one of them said, “Where is Malik bin Al-Dukhaishin or Ibn Al-Dukhshun?” One of them replied, “He is a hypocrite and does not love ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S].” Hearing that, ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “Do not say so. Haven’t you seen that he said, ‘None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH’ for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake Only?” He said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S] know better. We have seen him helping and advising hypocrites.” ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “ALLAH [S.W.T] has forbidden the (Hell) fire for those who say, ‘None has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH’ for ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Sake Only.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 10: Times of the Prayers, Number 512:

Narrated Abu Huraira (R.A):

 The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “In very hot weather delay the Zuhr prayer till it becomes (a bit) cooler because the severity of heat is from the raging of Hell-fire. The Hell-fire of Hell complained to its LORD saying: O LORD! My parts are eating (destroying) one another. So ALLAH [S.W.T] allowed it to take two breaths, one in the winter and the other in the summer. The breath in the summer is at the time when you feel the severest heat and the breath in the winter is at the time when you feel the severest cold.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 2, Book 23: Funerals (Al-Janaa’iz), Number 438:

Narrated Anas (R.A):

 A young Jewish boy used to serve the Prophet [S.A.W.S] and he became sick. So the Prophet [S.A.W.S] went to visit him. He sat near his head and asked him to embrace Islam. The boy looked at his father, who was sitting there; the latter told him to obey Abu-l-Qasim [S.A.W.S] and the boy embraced Islam. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] came out saying: “Praises be to ALLAH [S.W.T] WHO saved the boy from the Hell-fire.”

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 2, Book 23: Funerals (Al-Janaa’iz), Number 468:

Narrated Samura bin Jundab (R.A):

 Whenever the Prophet [S.A.W.S] finished the (morning) prayer, he would face us and ask, “Who amongst you had a dream last night?” So if anyone had seen a dream he would narrate it. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] would say: “Masha’ALLAH” (An Arabic maxim meaning literally, ‘What ALLAH wished,’ and it indicates a good omen.) One day, he asked us whether anyone of us had seen a dream. We replied in the negative. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “But I had seen (a dream) last night that two men (P.B.U.T) came to me, caught hold of my hands, and took me to the Sacred Land (Jerusalem). There, I saw a person sitting and another standing with an iron hook in his hand pushing it inside the mouth of the former till it reached the jaw-bone, and then tore off one side of his cheek, and then did the same with the other side; in the mean-time the first side of his cheek became normal again and then he repeated the same operation again. I said, ‘What is this?’ They told me to proceed on and we went on till we came to a man lying flat on his back, and another man standing at his head carrying a stone or a piece of rock, and crushing the head of the lying man, with that stone. Whenever he struck him, the stone rolled away. The man went to pick it up and by the time he returned to him, the crushed head had returned to its normal state and the man came back and struck him again (and so on). I said, ‘Who is this?’ They told me to proceed on; so we proceeded on and passed by a hole like an oven; with a narrow top and wide bottom, and the fire was kindling underneath that hole. Whenever the fire-flame went up, the people were lifted up to such an extent that they about to get out of it, and whenever the fire got quieter, the people went down into it, and there were naked men and women in it. I said, ‘Who is this?’ They told me to proceed on. So we proceeded on till we reached a river of blood and a man was in it, and another man was standing at its bank with stones in front of him, facing the man standing in the river. Whenever the man in the river wanted to come out, the other one threw a stone in his mouth and caused him to retreat to his original position; and so whenever he wanted to come out the other would throw a stone in his mouth, and he would retreat to his original position. I asked, ‘What is this?’ They told me to proceed on and we did so till we reached a well-flourished green garden having a huge tree and near its root was sitting an old man with some children. (I saw) Another man near the tree with fire in front of him and he was kindling it up. Then they (i.e. my two companions (P.B.U.T)) made me climb up the tree and made me enter a house, better than which I have ever seen. In it were some old men and young men, women and children. Then they took me out of this house and made me climb up the tree and made me enter another house that was better and superior (to the first) containing old and young people. I said to them (i.e. my two companions (P.B.U.T)), ‘You have made me ramble all the night. Tell me all about that I have seen.’ They said, ‘Yes. As for the one whose cheek you saw being torn away, he was a liar and he used to tell lies, and the people would report those lies on his authority till they spread all over the world. So, he will be punished like that till the Day of Resurrection. The one whose head you saw being crushed is the one whom ALLAH [S.W.T] had given the knowledge of Qur’an (i.e. knowing it by heart) but he used to sleep at night (i.e. he did not recite it then) and did not use to act upon it (i.e. upon its orders etc.) by day; and so this punishment will go on till the Day of Resurrection. And those you saw in the hole (like oven) were adulterers (those men and women who commit illegal sexual intercourse). And those you saw in the river of blood were those dealing in Riba (usury). And the old man who was sitting at the base of the tree was Abraham (P.B.U.H) and the little children around him were the offspring of the people. And the one who was kindling the fire was Malik (P.B.U.H), the gate-keeper of the Hell-fire. And the first house in which you have one was the house of the common believers, and the second house was of the Martyrs. I am Gabriel (P.B.U.H) and this is Michael (P.B.U.H). Raise your head.’ I raised my head and saw a thing like a cloud over me. They said, ‘That is your place.’ I said, ‘Let me enter my place.’ They said, ‘You still have some life which you have not yet completed, and when you complete (that remaining portion of your life) you will then enter your place.'”

Narrated ‘Adi bin Hatim (R.A):

 While I was sitting with ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] two person came to him; one of them complained about his poverty and the other complained about the prevalence of robberies. ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “As regards stealing and robberies, there will shortly come a time when a caravan will go to Mecca (from Medina) without any guard. And regarding poverty, The Hour (Day of Judgment) will not be established till one of you wanders about with his object of charity and will not find anybody to accept it. And (no doubt) each one of you will stand in front of ALLAH [S.W.T] and there will be neither a curtain nor an interpreter between him and ALLAH [S.W.T], and ALLAH [S.W.T] will ask him, ‘Did not I give you wealth?’ He will reply in the affirmative. ALLAH [S.W.T] will further ask, ‘Didn’t I send a Messenger to you?’ And again that person will reply in the affirmative. Then he will look to his right and he will see nothing but Hell-fire, and then he will look to his left and will see nothing but Hell-fire. And so, any (each one) of you should save himself from the fire even by giving half of a date-fruit (in charity). And if you do not find a half date-fruit, then (you can do it through saying) a good pleasant word (to your brethren).

Give alms.” Then he went towards the women and said. “O women! Give alms, for I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-Fire were you (women).” The women asked, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! What is the reason for it?” He replied, “O women! You curse frequently, and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. O women, some of you can lead a cautious wise man astray.” Then he left. And when he reached his house, Zainab (R.A), the wife of Ibn Masud (R.A), came and asked permission to enter. It was said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]! It is Zainab (R.A).” He asked, ‘Which Zainab (R.A)?” The reply was that she was the wife of Ibn Mas’ud (R.A). He said, “Yes, allow her to enter.” And she was admitted. Then she said, “O Prophet of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S]! Today you ordered people to give alms and I had an ornament and intended to give it as alms, but Ibn Masud (R.A) said that he and his children deserved it more than anybody else.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] replied, “Ibn Masud (R.A) had spoken the truth. Your husband and your children had more right to it than anybody else.”

You will see their actions and disapprove of them.” I said, “Will there by any evil after that good?” He said, “Yes, there will be some people who will invite others to the doors of Hell, and whoever accepts their invitation to it will be thrown in it (by them).” I said, “O ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S]!

When that news reached the Prophet [S.A.W.S] he said, “If they had entered it (i.e. the fire), they would not have come out of it till the Day of Resurrection.

When the Day of Resurrection comes a soft sandy plain would be set for him, as extensive as possible, (he will find) that not a single young one is missing, and they will trample him with their hoofs and bite him with their mouths. As often as the first of them passes him, the last of them would be made to return during a day the extent of which would be fifty thousand years, until judgment is pronounced among servants and he sees whether his path is to take him to Paradise or to Hell. It was (again) said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], what about cows (cattle) and sheep? He said: It any owner of the cattle and sheep does not pay what is due on them, when the Day of Resurrection comes a soft sandy plain would be spread for them, he will find none of them missing, with twisted horns, without horns or with a broken horn, and they will gore him with their horns and trample him with their hoofs. As often as the first of them passes him the last of them would be made to return to him during a day the extent of which would be fifty thousand years, until judgment would be pronounced among the servants. And he would be shown his path-path leading him to Paradise or to Hell. It was said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], what about the horse? Upon this he said: The horses are of three types. To one than (these are) a burden, and to another man (these are) a covering, and still to another man (these are) a source of reward. The one for whom these are a burden is the person who rears them in order to show off, for vainglory and for opposing the Muslims; so they are a burden for him. The one for whom these are a covering is the person who rears them for the Sake of ALLAH [S.W.T] but does not forget the right of ALLAH [S.W.T] concerning their backs and their necks, and so they are a covering for him. As for those which bring reward (these refer to) the person who rears them for the Sake of ALLAH [S.W.T] to be used for Muslims and he puts them in meadow and field. And whatever thing do these eat from that meadow and field would be recorded on his behalf as good deeds, as would also the amount of their dung and urine. And these would not break their halter and prance a course or two without having got recorded the amount of their hoof marks and their dung as a good deed on his behalf (on behalf of their owner). And their master does not bring them past a river from which they drink, though he did not intend to quench their thirst, but ALLAH [S.W.T] would record for him the amount of what they drink on his behalf as deeds. It was said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], what about the asses? Upon this he said: Nothing has been revealed to me in regard to the asses (in particular) except this one verse of a comprehensive nature: “He who does an atom’s weight of good will see it, and he who does an atom’s weight of evil will see it” (99.7)

Thereupon he said: Had you not done that, (the gates of) Hell would have opened for you, or the fire would have burnt you.

He threw it from his hand and said: Never has ALLAH [S.W.T] or HIS Messengers (Angels) (P.B.U.T) ever broken their promise. Then he cast a glance (and by chance) found a puppy under his cot and said: ‘Aisha (R.A), when did this dog enter here? She said: BY ALLAH [S.W.T], I don’t know. He then commanded and it was turned out. Then Gabriel (P.B.U.H) came and ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] said to him: You promised me and I waited for you but you did not come, whereupon he said: It was the dog in your house which prevented me (to come), for we (Angels) (P.B.U.T) do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture.

Mas’ud (R.A) as saying ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] had said: The most grievously tormented people on the Day of Resurrection would be the painters of pictures.

He came near him so much so that he placed his hand upon his head and said: I am going to narrate to you what I heard from ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S].

The soul will be breathed in every picture prepared by him and it shall punish him in the Hell, and he (Ibn ‘Abbas (R.A)) said: If you have to do it at all, then paint the pictures of trees and lifeless things; and Nasr b.’Ali (R.A) confirmed it.

This news reached a woman of the tribe of Asad who was called Umm Ya’qub and she used to recite The Holy Qur’an. She came to him and said: What is this news that has reached me from you that you curse those women who tattooed and those women who have themselves tattooed, the women who pluck hair from their faces and who make spaces between their teeth for beautification changing what ALLAH [S.W.T] has created? Thereupon ‘Abdullah (R.A) said: Should I not curse one upon whom ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] has invoked curse and that is in the Book also. Thereupon that woman said: I read the Qur’an from cover to cover, but I did not find that in it whereupon he said: If you had read (thoroughly) you would have definitely found this in that (as) ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and GLORIOUS, has said: “What ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] brings for you accept that. And what he has forbidden you refrain from that.” That woman said: I find this thing in your wife even now. Thereupon he said: Go and see her. She reported: I went to the wife of ‘Abdullah (R.A) but found nothing of this sort in her.

Their heads would be like the humps of the bukht camel inclined to one side. They will not enter Paradise and they would not smell its odor whereas its odor would be smelt from such and such distance.

He (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: The poor of my Ummah would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and Zakat but (he would find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others and unlawfully consumed the wealth of others and shed the blood of others and beat others, and his virtues would be credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his good deeds fall short to clear the account, then his sins would be entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire.

(The narrator says): I think HE also said: I would not cause you to enter Hell Fire but you defied and attributed Divinity (to others besides ME).

As ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] was going along with us towards the dwellings of Bani an-Najjar, riding upon his pony, it shied and he was about to fall. He found four, five or six graves there. He said: Who amongst you knows about those lying in the graves? A person said: It is I. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: In what state did they die? He said: They died as polytheists. He said: These people are passing through the ordeal in the graves. If it were not the reason that you would stop burying (your dead) in the graves on listening to the torment in the grave which I am listening to, I would have certainly made you hear that. Then turning his face towards us, he said: Seek refuge with ALLAH [S.W.T] from the torment of Hell. They said: We seek refuge with ALLAH [S.W.T] from the torment of Hell. He said: Seek refuge with ALLAH [S.W.T] from the torment of the grave. They said: We seek refuge with ALLAH [S.W.T] from the torment of the grave.

When the turmoil comes or it appears, the one who has camel should stick to his camel and he who has sheep or goat should stick to his sheep and goat and he who has land should stick to the land. A person said: ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S], what is your opinion about one who has neither camel nor sheep nor land? Thereupon, he said: He should take hold of his sword and beat its edge with the help of stone and then try to find a way of escape. O ALLAH [S.W.T], I have conveyed (THY Message); O ALLAH [S.W.T], I have conveyed (THY Message); O ALLAH [S.W.T], I have conveyed (THY Message).

Well, I grant you for your Ummah that it would not be destroyed by famine and it would not be dominated by an enemy who would not be amongst it and would take their lives and destroy them root and branch even if all the people from the different parts of the world join hands together (for this purpose), but it would be from amongst them, viz. your Ummah, that some people would kill the others or imprison the others.

I said: It is I. Thereupon he said: You are bold (enough to make this claim). And he further said: How? I said: I heard ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying: There would (first) be turmoil for a person in regard to his family, his property, his own self, his children, his neighbors (and the sins committed in their connection) would be expiated by fasting, prayer, charity, enjoining good and prohibiting evil. Thereupon ‘Umar (R.A) said: I do not mean (that turmoil on a small scale) but that one which would emerge like the mounting waves of the ocean. I said: Commander of the Faithful, you have nothing to do with it, for the door is closed between you and that. He said: Would that door be broken or opened? I said: No, it would be broken. Thereupon he said: Then it would not be closed despite best efforts. We said to Hudhaifa (R.A): Did Umar (R.A) knew the door? Thereupon he said: Yes, he knew it (for certain) just as one knows that night precede the next day. And I narrated to him something in which there was nothing fabricated. Shaqiq (R.A) (one of the narrators) said: We dared not ask Hudhaifa (R.A) about that door. So we requested Masrdq (R.A) to ask him. So he asked him and he said: (By that door, he meant) ‘Umar (R.A).

So he who amongst you is able to see that and is desirous of water should drink out of that which he sees as fire.

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] as saying that ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and GLORIOUS, said: MY servants, I have made oppression unlawful for ME and unlawful for you, so do not commit oppression against one another. MY servants, all of you are liable to err except one whom I guide on the right path, so seek right guidance from ME so that I should direct you to the right path. O MY servants, all of you are hungry (needy) except one whom I feed, so beg food from ME, so that I may give that to you. O MY servants, all of you are naked (need clothes) except one whom I provide garments, so beg clothes from ME, so that I should clothe you. O MY servants, you commit error night and day and I am there to pardon your sins, so beg pardon from ME, so that I should grant you pardon. O MY servants, you can neither do ME any harm nor can you do ME any good. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and even the whole of human race of yours, and that of jinns even, become (equal in) ALLAH [S.W.T] conscious like the heart of a single person amongst you, nothing would add to MY Power. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of the jinns too in unison become the most wicked (all beating) like the heart of a single person, it would cause no loss to MY Power. O MY servants, even if the first amongst you and the last amongst you and the whole human race of yours and that of jinns also all stand in one plain ground and you ask ME and I confer upon every person what he asks for, it would not in any way, cause any loss to ME (even less) than that which is caused to the ocean by dipping the needle in it. MY servants, these for you I shall reward you for then, so he who deeds of yours which I am recording finds good should Praise ALLAH and he who does not find that should not blame anyone but his ownself. Sa’id (R.A) said: That when Abu Idris Khaulini (R.A) narrated this hadith he knelt upon his knees.

And when they find some people celebrating the Praises of ALLAH [S.W.T], they call each other, saying, “Come to the object of your pursuit.'” He added, “Then the Angels (P.B.U.T) encircle them with their wings up to the sky of the world.” He added. “(after those people celebrated the Praises of ALLAH [S.W.T], and the Angels (P.B.U.T) go back), their LORD, asks them (those Angels (P.B.U.T)) – though HE knows better than them—-‘What do MY slaves say?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘they say: Subhan ALLAH, ALLAHU Akbar, and Alham-du-lillah, ALLAH [S.W.T] then says ‘Did they see ME?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘No! By ALLAH [S.W.T], they didn’t see YOU.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw ME?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘If they saw YOU, they would Worship YOU more devoutly and celebrate YOUR Glory more deeply, and declare YOUR freedom from any resemblance to anything more often.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says (to the Angels (P.B.U.T)), ‘What do they ask ME for?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘They ask YOU for Paradise.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says (to the Angels (P.B.U.T)), ‘Did they see it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘No! By ALLAH [S.W.T], O LORD! They did not see it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘If they saw it, they would have greater covetousness for it and would seek it with greater zeal and would have greater desire for it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘From what do they seek refuge?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) reply, ‘They seek refuge from the (Hell) Fire.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘Did they see it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘No! By ALLAH [S.W.T], O LORD! They did not see it.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] says, How it would have been if they saw it?’ The Angels (P.B.U.T) say, ‘If they saw it they would flee from it with the extreme fleeing and would have extreme fear from it.’ Then ALLAH [S.W.T] says, ‘I make you witnesses that I have Forgiven them.”‘ ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] added, “One of the Angels (P.B.U.T) would say, ‘There was so-and-so amongst them, and he was not one of them, but he had just come for some need.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] would say, ‘These are those people whose companions will not be reduced to misery.'”

If somebody intends to do a good deed and he does not do it, then ALLAH [S.W.T] will write for him a full good deed (in his account with HIM); and if he intends to do a good deed and actually did it, then ALLAH [S.W.T] will write for him (in his account with HIM) (its reward equal) from ten to seven hundred times to many more times: and if somebody intended to do a bad deed and he does not do it, then ALLAH [S.W.T] will write a full good deed (in his account with HIM), and if he intended to do it (a bad deed) and actually did it, then ALLAH [S.W.T] will write one bad deed (in his account).”

And the most beloved things with which MY slave comes nearer to ME, is what I have enjoined upon him; and MY slave keeps on coming closer to ME through performing Nawafil (praying or doing extra deeds besides what is obligatory) till I love him, so I become his sense of hearing with which he hears, and his sense of sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he grips, and his leg with which he walks; and if he asks ME, I will give him, and if he asks MY Protection (Refuge), I will Protect him; (i.e. give him MY Refuge) and I do not hesitate to do anything as I hesitate to take the soul of the believer, for he hates death, and I hate to disappoint him.”

If he remembers ME in himself, I too, remember him in MYSELF; and if he remembers ME in a group of people, I remember him in a group that is better than they; and if he comes one span nearer to ME, I go one cubit nearer to him; and if he comes one cubit nearer to ME, I go a distance of two outstretched arms nearer to him; and if he comes to ME walking, I go to him running.'”

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Apostle [S.A.W.S] said, “Your stay (in this world) in comparison to the stay of the nations preceding you, is like the period between ‘Asr prayer and the sun set (in comparison to a whole day). The people of the Torah were given the Torah and they acted on it till midday and then they were unable to carry on. And they were given (a reward equal to) one Qirat each. Then the people of the Gospel were given the Gospel and they acted on it till ‘Asr Prayer and then they were unable to carry on, so they were given a reward equal to) one Qirat each. Then you were given the Qur’an and you acted on it till sunset, therefore you were given (a reward equal to) two Qirats each. On that, the people of the Scriptures said, ‘These people (Muslims) did less work than we but they took a bigger reward.’ ALLAH [S.W.T] said (to them). ‘Have I done any oppression to you as regards your rights?’ They said, “No.” Then ALLAH [S.W.T] said, ‘That is MY Blessing which I grant to whomsoever I Will.'”

But I will inform you about its portents.

1. When a slave (lady) gives birth to her master.

2. When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings. And the Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except ALLAH [S.W.T]. The Prophet [S.A.W.S] then recited: “Verily, with ALLAH (Alone) is the Knowledge of the Hour–.” (31.34) Then that man (Gabriel (P.B.U.H)) left and the Prophet [S.A.W.S] asked his companions (R.A) to call him back, but they could not see him. Then the Prophet [S.A.W.S] said, “That was Gabriel (P.B.U.H) who came to teach the people their religion.” Abu ‘Abdullah (R.A) said: He (the Prophet [S.A.W.S]) considered all that as a part of faith.

‘Uqba b. ‘Amir (R.A) reported:

 We were entrusted with the task of tending the camels. On my turn when I came back in the evening after grazing them in the pastures, I found ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] stand and address the people. I heard these words of his: If any Muslim performs ablution well, then stands and prays two rak’ahs setting about them with his heart as well as his face, Paradise would be guaranteed to him. I said: What a fine thing is this! And a narrator who was before me said: The first was better than even this. When I cast a glance, I saw that it was ‘Umar (R.A) who said: I see that you have just come and observed: If anyone amongst you performs the ablution, and then completes the ablution well and then says: I testify that there is no god but ALLAH and that Muhammad [S.A.W.S] is the servant of ALLAH and HIS Messenger, the eight gates of Paradise would be opened for him and he may enter by whichever of them he wishes.

We said: Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S], we would like to do it. Upon this he said: Does not one of you go out in the morning to the Mosque and teach or recite two verses from the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T], the MAJESTIC and GLORIOUS? That is better for him than two she camels, and three verses are better (than three she camels), and four verses are better for him than four (she camels), and to on their number in camels.

Abu Umama (R.A) said he heard:

 ALLAH [S.W.T]’s Messenger [S.A.W.S] say: Recite the Qur’an, for on the Day of Resurrection it will come as an intercessor for those who recite It. Recite the two bright ones, Surah al-Baqara and Surah Al ‘Imran, for on the Day of Resurrection they will come as two clouds or two shades, or two flocks of birds in ranks, pleading for those who recite them. Recite Surah al-Baqara, for to take recourse to it is a blessing and to give it up is a cause of grief, and the magicians cannot confront it. (Mu’awiya (R.A) said: It has been conveyed to me that here Batala means magicians.)

Then when an Angel (P.B.U.H) descended through it, he said: This is an Angel (P.B.U.H) who came down to the earth who had never come down before. He greeted and said: Rejoice in two lights given to you which have not been given to any Prophet (P.B.U.T) before you: Falihat al-Kitab (1.1-7) and the concluding verses of Suarah al-Baqara (2.286). You will never recite a letter from them for which you will not be given (a reward).

I said: ALLAH [S.W.T] and HIS Apostle [S.A.W.S] know best. He again said: Abu’l-Mundhir (R.A), do you know the verse from the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T] which, according to you, is the greatest? I said: “ALLAH, there is no god but HE, the LIVING, the ETERNAL.” (Ayat Al-Kursi (2.255)) Thereupon he struck me on my breast and said: May knowledge be pleasant for you, O Abu’l-Mundhir (R.A)!

Nobody would overtake you and you would be better than the people amongst whom you live except those who would do the same. Say, “Subhan-ALLAH”, “Alhamdu-lillah” and “ALLAHU Akbar” thirty three times each after every (compulsory) prayer.” We differed and some of us said that we should say, “Subhan-ALLAH” thirty three times and “Alhamdu lillah” thirty three times and “ALLAHU Akbar” thirty four times.

They observe prayer as we do; they keep the fasts as we keep, and they give sadaqa out of their surplus riches. Upon this he (the Holy Prophet [S.A.W.S]) said: Has ALLAH [S.W.T] not prescribed for you (a course) by following which you can (also) do sadaqa? In every declaration of the Glorification of ALLAH [S.W.T] (i.e. saying Subhan ALLAH) there is a sadaqa, and every Takbir (i.e. saying ALLAHU Akbar) is a sadaqa, and every Praise of HIS (saying al-Hamdu Lillah) is a sadaqa and every declaration that HE is ONE (La illha ill-ALLAH) is a sadaqa, and enjoining of good is a sadaqa, and forbidding of that which is evil is a sadaqa, and in man’s sexual intercourse (with his wife,) there is a sadaqa.

Sovereignty belongs to HIM and all the Praise is due to HIM, and HE is POTENT over everything” one hundred times every day there is a reward of emancipating ten slaves for him, and there are recorded hundred virtues to his credit, and hundred vices are blotted out from his scroll, and that is a safeguard for him against the satan on that day till evening and no one brings anything more excellent than this, except one who has done more than this (who utters these words more than one hundred times and does more good acts) and he who utters: “Hallowed be ALLAH and all Praise is due to HIM,” one hundred times a day, his sins are obliterated even if they are equal to the extent of the foam of the ocean.

Don’t exert yourselves, for you do not call a deaf or an absent one, but you call the ALL-LISTENER, the ALL-SEER.” The Prophet [S.A.W.S] then said, “O ‘Abdullah bin Qais (R.A)!

They are THY slaves, and if THOU forgiveth them-verily THOU art the MIGHTY, the WISE” (al-Qur’an, 5.118). Then he raised his hands and said: O LORD, my Ummah, my Ummah, and wept; so ALLAH [S.W.T] the HIGH and the EXALTED said: O Gabriel (P.B.U.H), go to Muhammad [S.A.W.S] (Though your LORD knows it fully well) and ask him: What makes thee weep? So Gabriel (P.B.U.H) came to him and asked him, and the Messenger of ALLAH [S.W.T] [S.A.W.S] informed him what he had said (Though ALLAH [S.W.T] knew it fully well). Upon this ALLAH [S.W.T] said: O Gabriel (P.B.U.H), go to Muhammad [S.A.W.S] and say: Verily WE will please thee with regard to your Ummah and would not displease thee.

And Peace be on us and on the good (pious) worshipers of ALLAH. I testify that none has the right to be Worshiped but ALLAH and that Muhammad is HIS slave and Apostle.)

How should one (ask ALLAH [S.W.T] to) send blessings on you, the members of the family, for ALLAH [S.W.T] has taught us how to salute you (in the prayer)?’ He said, ‘Say: O ALLAH! Send YOUR Mercy on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad, as YOU sent YOUR Mercy on Abraham and on the family of Abraham, for YOU are the MOST PRAISEWORTHY, the MOST GLORIOUS. O ALLAH! Send YOUR Blessings on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as YOU sent YOUR Blessings on Abraham and on the family of Abraham, for YOU are the MOST PRAISEWORTHY, the MOST GLORIOUS.'”

It is (exclusively) meant for ME and I (Alone) will reward it. Fasting is a shield. When any one of you is fasting on a day, he should neither indulge in obscene language, nor raise the voice; or if anyone reviles him or tries to quarrel with him he should say: I am a person fasting. By HIM, in WHOSE Hand is the life of Muhammad [S.A.W.S], the breath of the observer of fast is sweeter to ALLAH [S.W.T] on the Day of Judgment than the fragrance of musk. The one who fasts has two (occasions) of joy, one when he breaks the fast he is glad with the breaking of (the fast) and one when he meets his LORD he is glad with his fast.

Shall we acquaint the people with this good news?” He said, “Paradise has one-hundred grades which ALLAH [S.W.T] has reserved for the Mujahidin who fight in HIS Cause, and the distance between each of two grades is like the distance between the Heaven and the Earth. So, when you ask ALLAH [S.W.T] (for something), ask for Al-Firdaus which is the best and highest part of Paradise.” (i.e. the sub-narrator added, “I think the Prophet [S.A.W.S] also said, ‘Above it (i.e. Al-Firdaus) is the Throne of BENEFICENT (i.e. ALLAH [S.W.T]), and from it originate the rivers of Paradise.”)

HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said: The person who would be admitted into Paradise last of all among those deserving of Paradise who are admitted to it. I would be said to him: Enter Paradise. He would say: O my LORD! How (should I enter) while the people have settled in their apartments and taken the shares (portions)? It would be said to him: Would you be pleased if there be for you like the kingdom of a king amongst the kings of the world? He would say: I am pleased my LORD. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: For you is that, and like that, and like that, and like that, and that. He would say at the fifth (point): I am well pleased, my LORD. HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) would say: It is for you and ten times like it, and for you is what your self desires and your eye enjoys. He would say: I am well pleased, my LORD. He (Moses (P.B.U.H)) said: (Which is) the highest of their (inhabitants of Paradise) ranks? HE (ALLAH [S.W.T]) said: They are those Whom I choose. I establish their Honor with MY OWN Hand and then set a seal over it (and they would be Blessed with Bounties) which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human mind has perceived: and this is substantiated by the Book of ALLAH [S.W.T], the EXALTED and GREAT: “So no soul knows what delight of the eye is hidden for them; a reward for what they did” (32.17).
