Punishment By the Hellfire Is Repelled by Ten Causes; Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah:Reply
Shaykh ul-Islaam رحمه الله said, (refer to Majmoo' Fataawaa 7/487-500,
in Kitaab ul-Imaan, and refer also to Minhaaj us-Sunnah)
“For sins, are the cause of punishment for the Believers, absolutely, however,
being punished on account of them in the Hereafter with Jahannam can be
repelled with around ten causes:
Repentance. For the one who repents from sin is like the one who has no sin, and repentance is accepted for all sins, including kufr (disbelief), fusooq (sin), 'isyaan (disobedience). The Most High said, “Say to those who disbelieve, if they stop, then He will forgive them for what has passed...” and as for what has been reported from the Prophet ﷺ (in this regard) then it is much and is well known.
Making Istighfaar. For Istighfaar is seeking forgiveness
(maghfirah), and it is a type of supplication and request, and it is overwhelmingly tied to repentance, and is also commanded. However, a man may repent but not supplicate, and he may supplicate but not repent.
Righteous Actions. For Allaah the Most High says, “Verily the good deeds take away the evil deeds...” and the Prophet ﷺ said to Mu'aadh bin Jabal, advising him, “O Mu'aadh, fear Allaah wherever you may be, and follow up an evil deed with a good deed, and behave with the people with good manners”.
Supplicating for the Believers. For the prayer of the Muslims over the dead person, and supplicating for him is amongst the causes of forgiveness, and likewise, their supplication and seeking of forgiveness outside of the funeral prayer.
