“A Man of Paradise is Coming.”

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

The Messenger of Allah was seated in a gathering with his close companions, when he looked towards the entrance and said, “A man of Paradise is coming.” At that instance someone who seemed to be very ordinary entered the mosque where they were seated. One of the companions was curious as to why the Prophet (saw) said this, so he followed the man to his house. This companion told the man that he was a traveler and was welcomed and stayed as a guest. For three days the companion saw nothing unusual, so he finally told the man what the Prophet (saw) had said and asked him what was so special. The man thought for a very long time and said, ‘There might be only one thing — before going to sleep every night I forgive everyone and sleep with a clean heart.’

Ya Haqq!

    What a beautiful hadith. I have read it will the words ‘I remove all rancour from my heart’ as the last line. Such a powerful message – so simple and yet such an intensely difficult thing to stick to!
