A Companion of Prophet muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), Abu Hurayrah (RA) narrated an incident which happened during the lifetime of the Rasul. It was about the story of the last man who Allaah will allow to enter His. al-Jannah. Lets read on ..... The people asked, "0 Allahs Messenger! Shall we see our lord on the Day of Resurrection?" The Rasul (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) replied, "Do you have any doubt in seeing the full moon on a clear (not cloudy) night?" They replied, ."No, O Allah's Messenger!" He said, "Do you have any doubt in seeing the sun when there are no clouds?" They replied in the negative. He said, "You will see Allah (your Lord) in the same way. On the Day of Resurrection, people will be gathered and He will order the people to follow what they used to worship.
So some of them will follow the sun, some will follow the moon, and only this nation (Muslims) will be left with its hypocrites: Allah will come to them and say, I am Your Lord. They will say, We shall stay in this place till our Lord comes to us and when our Lord will come, we will recognize Him. Then Allah will come to them again and say, I am your Lord. They will say, You are our Lord.
Allah will call them, and As-Sirat (a bridge) will be laid across Hell and I (Muhammad) shall be the first amongst the Messengers to cross it with my followers. Nobody except the Messengers will then be able to speak and they will be saying then, 0 Allah! Save us. 0 Allah Save us. There will be hooks like the thorns of Sadan in Hell. Have you seen the thorns of Sadan?" The people said, "Yes." He said, "These hooks will be like the thorns of Sadan but nobody except Allah knows their greatness in size and these will entangle the people according to their deeds; Some will follow other some of them will fall and stay in Hell forever; others will receive punishment (to rn in to small piece s) and will get out of Hell, till when Allah intends mercy on whomever He likes amongst the people of Hell, He will order the angels to take out of Hell those who worshipped none but Him alone. The angels will take them out by recognizing them from the traces of prostrations, for Allah has forbidden the (Hell) fire to eat away those traces.
So they will come out of the Fire, it will eat away from the whole of the human body except the marks of the prostrations. At that time they will come out of the Fire as mere skeletons. The Water of Life will be poured on them and as a result they will grow like the seeds growing on the bank of flowing water. Then when Allah had finished from the Judgments amongst his creations, one man will be left between Hell and Paradise and he will be the last man from the people of Hell to enter Paradise.
