Hadith: COMBINATION OF HOPE AND FEAR OF ALLAH

Ibn Masud (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said, “Jannah (Paradise) is nearer to you than your shoelace, and so is the (hell) fire”.
(Sahih Al-Bukhari: 6488)
COMMENTARY
Jannah is close to him who adopts the path of righteousness and he can easily attain it. Its opposite case is also true. He is close to hell who takes the path of evil. Thus this Hadith had an inducement for virtue and warning against evil.
