that no Muslim will go to Hell means that no Muslim will abide in Hell for ever. It does not at all mean that however
sinful a Muslim may be, he will not be sent to Hell or suffer its torments.

Bara' bin `Azib (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"When a believer is
questioned in the grave, he testifies that, `there is no true god except Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of
' About him the Words of Allah, the Exalted, are:
`Allah will keep firm those who believe, with the firm
statement (The Testimony of Faith) in this world and the Hereafter)".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith mentions both the parts of the Shahadah together, that is to say "La ilaha illallah,
Muhammad-ur-Rasulullah'' (There is no true god except Allah, and Muhammad (PBUH) is the Messenger of Allah).
The questioning in the grave is beyond question and is a part of Muslim Belief. Every Muslim will, by the Grace of
Allah, give their correct answers in respect of Tauhid and Risalah.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"When an infidel
accomplishes any good deed, he is rewarded for it in this world; and in the case of a Muslim, Allah stores up his
good acts for him in the Hereafter and provides him with subsistence in this life due to his obedience.''
Another narration is: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Allah does not wrong a believer a good deed because he is
given blessings for it in this world and will be rewarded for it in the Hereafter. But the infidel is given in the world
the reward for good deeds, he has performed for the sake of Allah and when he comes to the Hereafter, there is no
good deed for which he can be rewarded".
The infidels also do in this world many works which are for public welfare, or which come under the
category of good deeds. Almighty Allah gives them reward for such good deeds in this world in the form of wealth,
sound health, or saving them from some trouble, because Belief is precondition for reward in the Hereafter. Since an
infidel is deprived of it, he will also be deprived of their reward in the Hereafter. Thus, we learn that Belief
constitutes the basis of every action and is a precondition for the acceptance of any good deed by Allah.

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"The five daily Salat
(prayers) are like a great river running by your door in which you take a bath five times a day.''
This Hadith mentions the merits of performing the five-times prescribed Salat
punctually. A
person who takes bath five times daily, cannot have any dirt on his body; similarly, one who performs Salat
regularly is washed of all the minor sins. If he repents and makes penitence, his major sins are also pardoned. One
who is meticulous about Salat and other obligations, generally does not commit any major sin but if at all he
commits it, he does not stick to it. He is sorry for it and abandons it. His minor sins are washed away by his Salat.
