Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: We were sitting with Messenger of Allah (PBUH).
Abu Bakr and `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) were also there among the audience. In the meanwhile
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) got up and left us. We waited long for his return: When we were worried about his
safety, and got scared, we got up. I, therefore, went out to look for Messenger of Allah and came to a garden which
belonged to the Ansar. He (PBUH) said to me
"Go and give glad tidings of Jannah to anyone who testifies `La ilaha
illallah (There is no true god except Allah),' being whole-heartedly certain of it"
This Hadith also tells us that ultimately a Muslim will be awarded Jannah. Whether he will go there
in the first stage or after suffering the punishment in Hell, is a matter that depends entirely on the Will of Allah.

`Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`as (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) recited the
Words of Allah, the Exalted, and the Glorious, about Ibrahim (PBUH) who said:
"O my Rubb! They have led astray
many among mankind. But whosoever follows me, he verily, is of me".
(14:36) and those of `Isa (Jesus) (PBUH)
who said:
"If You punish them, they are Your slaves, and if You forgive them, verily, You, only You, are the All-
Mighty, the All-Wise"
. (5:118). Then he (PBUH) raised up his hands and said,
"O Allah! My Ummah, my Ummah,''
and wept; Allah, the Exalted, said: "O Jibril (Gabriel)! Go to Muhammad (PBUH) and ask him: `What makes you
weep?" So Jibril came to him and asked him (the reason of his weeping) and the Messenger of Allah informed him
what he had said (though Allah knew it well). Upon this Allah said: "Jibril, go to Muhammad (PBUH) and say:
`Verily, We will please you with regard to your Ummah and will never displease you".
This Hadith makes two points clear:
Firstly, the kindness and mercy which the Prophet (PBUH) had for his Ummah, a full manifestation of which will be
seen on the Day of Resurrection.
Secondly, the love that Allah has for His Prophet, Muhammad (PBUH). Both these benefits will then go to the
advantage of the faithful Muslims as they will be then blessed with Mercy and forgiveness of Allah. May Allah
include us among them.

Mu`adh bin Jabal (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I was riding a pillion with the Prophet (PBUH) on
a donkey. He (PBUH) said,
"O Mu`adh, do you know what is the right of Allah upon His slaves, and what is the
Right of His slaves upon Allah?''
I said: "Allah and His Messenger know better". Upon this the Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) said,
"Allah's Right upon His slaves is that they should worship Him Alone and associate nothing with
Him; and His slaves' right upon Him is that He should not punish who does not associate a thing with Him.''
(Mu`adh) added: I said to the Messenger of Allah: "Shall I give the glad tidings to people?'' He (PBUH) said,
not tell them this good news for they will depend on it alone".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith tells us that ordinary people, who are generally unable to understand the meanings of
things in their context, will think that mere verbal profession of Tauhid and Risalah is sufficient to attain
forgiveness, and it is not necessary to do what this profession entails. With this notion, they become unmindful of
the obligations. Verbal profession does give them the security that they would not abide in Hell forever for
ultimately they will go to Jannah. Our people are generally under the impression that all sinful Muslims, like the
perfect Muslims, will go to Jannah in the very first instance. According to proofs furnished by other injunctions of
Shari`ah, this is not so. This point has been already discussed at length earlier. In any case, the point made here is
