Does every one of you want to enter Paradise..

عن الحسن البصري أن النبي (صلى الله عليه وسلم) قال لأصحابه:

أريد كلكم أن يدخل الجنة؟ قالوا: نعم, جعلنا الله تعالى فداءك يا رسول الله, قال: قصروا الأمل واستحوا من الله حق الحياء. قالوا: يا رسول الله كلنا نستحي من الله تعالى. قال: ليس ذلك بالحياء, ولكن الحياء من الله تعالى أن تذكروا المقابر والبلى, وتحفظوا الجوف وما وعى والرأس وما حوى

The Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Does every one of you want to enter Paradise?’ They said, ‘Yes! May Allah sacrifice us for you, O Messenger of Allah!’ He said, ‘Sever your long hopes and be shy of Allah as He truly deserves.’ They said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, we are all shy of Allah.’ He said, ‘That is not shyness. Rather, shyness of Allah Ta’ala is to remember the graves and its trials, to preserve the chest and what it gathers, and to preserve the head and what it contains.’ [Sahih al-Jami’]

وروي عن النبي (صلى الله عليه وسلم) أنه قال: صلاح أول هذه الأمة بالزهد واليقين, وهلاك آخر هذه الأمة بالبخل والأمل

And it is also reported in a sound narration (Sahih al-Jami’) that the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Rectification in the first part of this nation was in Zuhd (detachment from the excesses of this world) and Yaqin (certainty), and the destruction of the last part of this nation will be in greed and long hopes.’

May Allah reward the translator.
