Benefit: Nobody Shall Enter Paradise Before Purification

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Ibn al-Qayyim (d.751 AH) said:

It is not possible for the servant to enter paradise without purification. The servant is purified by way of four things in the worldly life:

1) repentance
2) seeking forgiveness
3) good deeds which wipe away evil deeds
4) calamities which expiate the sins

If these four things are not enough to purify and cleanse the servant, he is purified by way of three things in the Barzakh:

1) The people of īmān praying over him and interceding by seeking forgiveness for him.
2) The trials and tribulations of the grave.
3) The charitible actions pledged on his behalf from his Muslim brothers.

If these three things are not enough to purify him, he is purified at the place of standing by way of three things:

1) The fright of resurrection and the severity of the place of standing. 
2) The intercession of the intercessors.
3) The forgiveness of Allāh, the Mighty and Majestic.

If these three things are not enough to purify him, then the hellfire will cleanse him and purify him from his evil. He will abide therein according to the severity of his evil and how much he possess. When he becomes pure and good and the evil has departed, he will exit the hellfire and enter paradise.

Benefit: Shield Your Tongue if You Wish to Attain Paradise

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

I  said: O Messenger of Allāh, tell me an act which will take me into Paradise and will keep me away from the Hell-fire?

On the authority of Muʿādh ibn Jabal (raḍī Allāhu ʿanhu) who said:
I said: O messenger of Allāh, tell me an act which will take me into Paradise and will keep me away from the Hell-fire. He said: You have asked me about a major matter, yet it is easy for him for whom Allāh, the Exalted, makes it easy. You should worship Allāh, associating nothing with Him; you should perform the prayers; you should pay the zakat, you should make the pilgrimage to the House. Then he said: Shall I not show you the gates of goodness? Fasting [which] is a shield; charity extinguishes sin as water extinguishes fire; and the praying of the man in the depths of the night. then he recited: "their sides forsake their beds invoking their Rubb in fair and hope and they spend out of what we have bestowed on them. No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do. Then he said: Shall I not tell you of the peak of the matter its pillar and its topmost part? I said: Yes, O Messenger of Allāh. He said: The peak of matter is Islām, the pillar is prayer, and its topmost part is jihad. Then he said: Shall I not tell you of the controlling of all that? I said Yes, O Messenger of Allāh. And he took hold of his tongue and said: Restrain this. I said: O Prophet of Allāh, will what we say be held against us? He said: May your mother be bereaved of you O Mu'aadh! Is there anything that topples people on their faces -or he said on their nose- into Hell-fire other than the harvests of their tongues?
It was related by al-Tirmidhī, who stated that as a ḥasan (fair) and ṣaḥīḥ (sound) ḥadīth

Benefit: The Dunyā Is Like a Prison

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

It is mentioned that when al-Hafidh Ibn Hajr was the chief justice (of Egypt), one day he was passing through the market with a caravan, looking well groomed. So a Jew who was selling hot oil, looking very disheveled and dirty because of the oil, accosted him by grabbing the reins of his mule saying, "Yā Shaykh al-Islām, you claim that your prophet said that the dunyā is a prison for the mu'min and a jannah for the kāfir; so what type of prison are you in and what type of jannah am I in?" He (Ibn Hajr) replied, "Regarding what Allāh has prepared for me in the hereafter from its bliss, then it is as if I am in prison, and with regards to what Allāh has prepared for you in the hereafter from its punishment, then it is as if you are in jannah." At which point the Jew became a Muslim. (Faydhul-Qadeer: 3/546)           

Translated by Hisham Assing

ذكروا أن الحافظ ابن حجر لما كان قاضي القضاة مر يوما بالسوق في موكب عظيم وهيئة جميلة فهجم عليه يهودي يبيع الزيت الحار وأثوابه ملطخة بالزيت وهو في غاية الرثاثة والشناعة فقبض على لجام بغلته وقال يا شيخ الإسلام تزعم أن نبيكم قال الدنيا سجن المؤمن وجنة الكافر فأي سجن أنت فيه وأي جنة أنا فيها فقال أنا بالنسبة لما أعد الله لي في الآخرة من النعيم كأني الآن في السجن وأنت بالنسبة لما أعد لك في الآخرة من العذاب الأليم كأنك في جنة فأسلم اليهودي
