Hasan on Salvation: Four traits to protect from Hellfire, Satan

Abu Nu’aym reported: Al-Hasan al-Basri, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Whoever has four traits, Allah will forbid him from entering Hellfire and grant him refuge from Satan: one who controls himself at a time of hope and a time of fear, at a time of passion and a time of anger.”

عن أبي نعيم الْحَسَن البصري رحمه الله قال مَنْ كَانَتْ لَهُ أَرْبَعُ خِلالٍ حَرَّمَهُ اللَّهُ عَلَى النَّارِ وَأَعَاذَهُ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ مَنْ يَمْلِكُ نَفْسَهُ عِنْدَ الرَّغْبَةِ وَالرَّهْبَةِ وَعِنْدَ الشَّهْوَةِ وَعِنْدَ الْغَضَبِ
