Intercede for whomever you wish, for your intercession will be accepted." After interceding for my nation, I will continue entreating, and I will not rise to my feet until He says, "Put all people into Paradise who said La ilaha ill-Allah once with ikhlas and died with faith. [Imam-i Ahmad] Crossing the Sirat Bridge depends on everybodys light. Some will cross it in the twinkling of an eye; some, like lightning; some, like a falling star; some, like a running horse. He who has very little light will creep facedown. His hands and feet will slip, and he will cling to it again. At long last, he will break free from it by creeping and creeping. [ Tabarani ] Sahih International: On the Day you see the believing men and believing women, their light proceeding before them and on their right, [it will be said], "Your good tidings today are [of] gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein you will abide eternally." That is what is the great attainment. On the [same] Day the hypocrite men and hypocrite women will say to those who believed, "Wait for us that we may acquire some of your light." It will be said, "Go back behind you and seek light." And a wall will be placed between them with a door, its interior containing mercy, but on the outside of it is torment.

(Then) they will be permitted to enter Jannah. So, by the One in Whose Hands is my soul, they will know their way to their homes in Jannah, better than they know their ways to their homes in dunya.” [ Saheeh Al-Bukhari ]

They have not [yet] entered it, but they long intensely.And when their eyes are turned toward the companions of the Fire, they say, "Our Lord, donot place us with the wrongdoing people." And the companions of the Elevations will call tomen [within Hell] whom they recognize by their mark, saying, "Of no avail to you was yourgathering and [the fact] that you were arrogant." [Allah will say], "Are these the ones whomyou [inhabitants of Hell] swore that Allah would never offer them mercy? Enter Paradise, [OPeople of the Elevations].
