Some of the deeds of the People of Paradise and the people of the hell fire

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy


Shaikhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah) said:

The deeds of the people of Paradise: Imaan and Taqwa.

And the deeds of the people of hell fire: Disbelief, wicked sins and disobedience.

(i.e. None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah)

Fulfilling trusts

Fulfilling agreements

Supplicating to Allaah for one’s special needs

Reliance upon Allaah whilst fleeing away from what one fears

Enjoining good and forbidding evil

Striving in the path of Allaah against the disbelievers and the hypocrites.

Keeping good relations with the one who cuts it off

Giving to the one who deprives you

Pardoning the one who oppresses you


Indeed, Allaah has prepared Paradise for those who fear Him—those who spend in times of ease and adversity; those who suppress anger and pardon the people. Allaah loves the doers of good.

And from the deeds of the people of Paradise: Justice in all affairs and towards all the creation, even the disbelievers.
