Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"The poor will
enter Jannah five hundred years before the rich.''
(the poor)
means those Fuqara' who are perfect in Faith. Such people will go to Jannah
five hundered years before the rich because the latter will have to account for their wealth, from where they had got
it and how they had spent it, while the former will not be answerable for any such thing.

Ibn `Abbas and `Imran bin Al-Husain (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
looked into Jannah and saw that most of its dwellers are the poor; and I looked into Hell and saw that most of its
inmates were women.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
The Prophet (PBUH) had observed Jannah and Hell either on the eve of Mi`raj (Ascension to
heavens), or of Salat-ul-Kusuf (Eclipse prayer) in which he (PBUH) was shown Jannah and Hell. A large majority
of Fuqara' will go to Jannah. The rich people do not attach much importance to the requirements of faith and its
The reason women are the majority in Hell is because they are given to taunts and curses and are ungrateful to their
husbands. The Hadith urges women to try to overcome these serious defects in order to be saved from the Hell-fire.

Usamah bin Zaid (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"I stood at the gate of
Jannah and saw that most of those who enter it were poor, whereas the rich were held back; but those who were
destined to go to Hell were ordered to be sent there (immediately).''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said,
"The most truthful
statement a poet has ever made is the saying of Labid: Everything besides Allah is vain.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
1. We learn from this Hadith that to compose, recite and quote good verses, as evidence, is permissible.
2. The Verse of Labid, quoted in this Hadith, is the asme effect as the verdict of the Noble Qur'an:
"Whatsoever is on (the earth) will perish."
This Verse accepts the elernity of the Afterlife and the transitory nature of this world.
