Just one dip

rich manAnas Ibn Malik reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said that on the Day of Resurrection, one resident destined for the Hellfire, who had led a rich and easy life (in the Dunya), would be dipped only once in Jahannam. And he would be asked,”O, son of Adam, did you find any comfort, did you happen to get any material blessing (while living in Dunya)?”


He would say: “By Allah, no, my Lord.”


poorAnd then, one resident destined for Paradise, who had led the most miserable life (in the Dunya)  would be dipped only once in Jannah. And he would be asked,” O, son of Adam, did you face, any hardship (while living in Dunya)? Or had any distress fallen to your lot?”


And he would say: “By Allah, no, O my Lord, never did I face any hardship or experience any distress.”


Sahih Muslim Book 039, Hadith Number 6738.
