Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Jannah is nearer to
you than your shoelace, and so is the (Hell) Fire".
Jannah is close to him who adopts the path of righteousness and he can easily attain it. Its opposite
case is also equally true. He is close to Hell who takes the path of evil. Thus, this Hadith has an inducement for
virtue and warning against evil.
