Hadith of the day:
It may be that a man commits wrong actions, and Allah will bring him to Paradise by his wrong actions. He was asked how would this be. He replied, `he commits wrong actions, but all the time he fears Allah and hates himself, so that Allah has mercy on him and allows him into paradise. - Imam Sadiq
Verily, the righteous, will be placed amid gardens and fountains. 'Enter therein with peace, in security.' And We shall remove whatever of rancour may be in their breasts so that they will be as brothers seated on thrones, facing one another; Fatigue shall not touch them, nor shall they ever be ejected therefrom. Tell My servants, O Prophet, that I am surely, All-Forgiving, All-Merciful. (Qur'an 15:45-50)
