None but will be shown his place in Hell & in Paradise


بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

In the saying of Allaah تبارك وتعالى:

﴿أَن تَقُولَ نَفْسٌ يحَسْرَتَى عَلَى مَا فَرَّطَتُ فِى جَنبِ اللَّهِ وَإِن كُنتُ لَمِنَ السَّـخِرِينَ - أَوْ تَقُولَ لَوْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ هَدَانِى لَكُـنتُ مِنَ الْمُتَّقِينَ - أَوْ تَقُولَ حِينَ تَرَى الْعَذَابَ لَوْ أَنَّ لِى كَـرَّةً فَأَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ ﴾

{Lest a person should say: “Alas, my grief that I was undutiful to Allaah, and I was indeed among those who mocked.” Or he should say: “If only Allaah had guided me, I should indeed have been among those who have Taqwa.” Or he should say when he sees the torment: “If only I had another chance, then I should indeed be among the doers of good.”}

Imaam Ahmad recorded that Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه said: “The Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

«كُلُّ أَهْلِ النَّارِ يَرَى مَقْعَدَهُ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ فَيَقُولُ: لَوْ أَنَّ اللهَ هَدَانِي فَتَكُونُ عَلَيْهِ حَسْرَةً، قال: وَكُلُّ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ يَرَى مَقْعَدَهُ مِنَ النَّارِ فَيَقُولُ: لَوْلَا أَنَّ اللهَ هَدَانِي، قال: فَيَكُونُ لَهُ شُكْرًا»

“Each of the people of Hell will be shown his place in Paradise and he will say: “If only Allaah had guided me!” so it will be a source of regret for him. And each of the people of Paradise will be shown his place in Hell and he will say: “If it were not for the fact that Allaah guided me,” so it will be a cause of thanks. Then the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم recited: {Lest a person should say: “Alas, my grief that I was undutiful to Allaah}

[Musnad Ahmad (10274), Mustadrak al-Haakim (3558) and the wordings are his. Al-Haakim said: “It is Saheeh as per the conditions of the Shaikhain (al-Bukhaaree and Muslim)” and al-Dhahabee agreed with him. It was also graded as “Hasan” by Shaikh al-Albaanee in al-Saheehah (2034)]
