Are There Companions Who Will be Called to Account and Then Punished and Who Will Then Enter Paradise?

by The Albaani Site

Questioner: Our Shaikh, are there people from the Companions who will be called to account and then punished and who will then enter Paradise? Are any of them of such levels?

Al-Albaani: Why are you concerned about that? [Lit: what concerns you about that question?]

Questioner: Wallaahi, it’s a question that came to mind.

Al-Albaani: I don’t think it crossed your mind … [starts laughing]

Questioner: [laughs]

Al-Albaani: From some angles these are whisperings [of the Devil, waswasah] … why are you concerned about that … why are you concerned about that … does it have a connection to your aqidah? [Is it] something which you will correct [your aqidah] with?

Ask about what is relevant to you, Yaa akhi, because this is a door Shaitaan enters through.
