But by mentioning this Hadith in the chapter relating to the fear of Allah, Imam An-Nawawi has warned that we
should be fearful of Allah, pray for His Help, and an auspicious end of our life. He has advised us to adopt whatever
means are available to us. In other words, we should make Faith and piety a way of life because one can find the
means and resources according to one's capacity. Since nobody knows the result of his endeavours, one should leave
it to Allah and rest assured that He Who has created him with a purpose will also create the ways and means to attain
it. He who adopts piety, the ways to piety will open for him; and he who adopts evil, the ways to evil will open for
A Muslim should never go towards evil at any stage of his life, lest his life comes to an end suddenly and he is
deprived of the reward of all the good deeds he has done during his life and consequently he is consigned to Hell
rather than Jannah. May Allah save us from a bad end and such actions which lead one to Hell.

Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Hell will be brought
on that Day (the Day of Resurrection) with seventy bridles; and with every bridle will be seventy thousand angels,
pulling it".
This Hadith deals with the hidden matters relating to the Unseen world. Muslims are ordained by
Allah to believe in them. It is wrong to hold them as metaphorical. They are realities but we can not imagine them.

Nu`man bin Bashir (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"The least
tortured man on the Day of Resurrection is one underneath whose feet will be placed two live coal, and his brain
will be boiling, and he would think that he is the most tortured, while he is the least tortured",
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
According to the narration in Muslim, the straps of shoes to be worn by the inhabitants of Hell would
be of fire which will make their brains boil like a cooker placed on oven. Some narrators have stated that the man
alluded to will be Abu Talib, the real uncle of the Prophet (PBUH) and his most kind and sympathetic supporter. But
since he had died as polythiest, he will be sent to Hell. May Allah save us from it.

Samurah bin Jundub (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Prophet of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Among the
people of Hell are there those who will be emersed in fire to their ankels, some to their knees, some to their waists,
and some to their throats".
This Hadith tells us that the inhabitants of Jannah will be classified into different categories and
enjoy different kinds of luxuries according to their merits. A similar classification will also be made in the
inhabitants of Hell and they will suffer torments according to their misdeeds.

Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH) as saying,
"Mankind will stand before Allah, the Rubb of the worlds (on the Day of Resurrection), some of them will stand
submerged in perspiration up to half of their ears".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
