“What happened?” asked Rasulullah (saw).

“You said whoever wants to see a man of hell should look at this man, while he was one of the biggest helpers of the Muslims. When you said this I understood that he was not going to die in this state. When he was injured he wanted to die quickly and so he killed himself.”

Rasulullah said:

“Indeed one who is a person of Paradise (in the knowledge of Allah) will do the things of the people of hell, and one who is a person of hell will do the things of the people of paradise, yet what counts is the things they do at the end of their life (the state in which they die).” (Bukhari)


Abdullah b. Amr (r.a.) narrates:

Rasulullah (saw) came with two books in his hand and asked:

“Do you know what these books are?”

We said, “We do not know Rasulullah, but if you tell us we will learn.”

Referring to the book in his right hand he said:

“This is a book written by the Rabb of the worlds (the source of the infinite meanings of the Names), it contains the names of the people of Paradise and the names of their fathers and forefathers (tribes).”

And explained the attributes of these people to the end. Then he said:

“From now till eternity, no other name will be added to this list, nor will any name be taken out of it.”

Upon this the apostles asked: “If this is a matter done and over then what is the point of doing anything?”

Rasulullah (saw) said:

“For, the people of Paradise will eventuate their lives by doing the things the people of Paradise do, while those of hell will end their lives doing the things the people of hell do.”

Then he moved his hands as though he was throwing something and added:

“Allah has ordained and destined the fates of His servants. Some will go to heaven and some will go to hell.”


Abu Huraira (r.a.) narrates:

Rasulullah (saw) said:

“In a time when people are believers in the morning and unbelievers by night, or unbelievers in the morning and believers by night, and when religion is sold in return of a small worldly gain, and when provocation (fitna) is like the waves of a dark night, run to good deeds!” (Muslim, Tirmidhi)


Abu Huraira (r.a.) narrates:

Rasulullah (saw) said:

“Prefer good deeds over seven things, for either one of these are awaiting you: poverty that strikes suddenly, wealth that leads to outrageousness, an ailment that afflicts your health, old age that makes you talk absurdly, death that comes suddenly, the Dajjal (Antichrist), or Doomsday, which is the most intense and difficult one of them all.” (Tirmidhi)


Abu Huraira (r.a.) narrates:

Rasulullah (saw) said:

“Run to good deeds from six things: the sun rising from the West, the Smoke, Antichrist (Dajjal), the Beast (DabbatulArdh), from a provocation that comes (at death) or that prevents you from attending to others, or the Doomsday.” (Muslim, Imam Ahmad)

Allah says:

“Fear me, not them, if you are of the believers.” (Quran 3:175)


Abu Huraira (r.a.) narrates:

Rasulullah (saw) said:

“Hell is veiled by desire and heaven by hardship to the self.” (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi)


Abdullah (r.a.) narrates:

Rasulullah (saw) said:
