Hadith on Sincerity: Muslims with sincere faith will never enter Hellfire forever

January 27, 2017

Itban ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, came to me one morning and a man said, “Where is Malik ibn Ad-Dukhsun?” Another man among us said, “That one is a hypocrite! He does not love Allah and his messenger!” The Prophet said to him, “Do you not agree that he says there is no God but Allah in pursuit thereby of the countenance of Allah?” The man said, “Of course.” The Prophet said, “Verily, a servant is not brought to the Day of Resurrection saying so but that Allah will forbid him from entering the Hellfire.”

عن عتبان بن مالك غَدَا عَلَيَّ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ أَيْنَ مَالِكُ بْنُ الدُّخْشُنِ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ مِنَّا ذَلِكَ مُنَافِقٌ لَا يُحِبُّ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَلَا تَقُولُوهُ يَقُولُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ يَبْتَغِي بِذَلِكَ وَجْهَ اللَّهِ قَالَ بَلَى قَالَ فَإِنَّهُ لَا يُوَافَى عَبْدٌ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ بِهِ إِلَّا حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ النَّارَ
