What would Uthman رضي الله عنه choose

قال : لو أني بين الجنة والنار ولا أدري إلى أيتهما يؤمر بي لاخترت أن أكون رمادا قبل أن أعلم إلى أيتهما أصير . 

حلية الأولياء

Uthman رضي الله عنه said:

If I was between paradise and the fire and I didn’t know to which it be commanded (I enter), I would choose to be dust before knowing which would be my destination.

Hilyatul awliyah

*And if our actions and behaviour would be observed today, then it would seem as if the judgement had taken place and as if we have one foot already in paradise 

إنا لله و إنا إليه راجعون
