Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) narrated: "When Allah's Messenger (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, 'Your ordinary fire is one of the 70 potions of the Hellfire,' someone commented, 'O Messenger of Allah, would it (ordinary fire) not be sufficient (to burn the wrongdoers)?' At that, Allah's Messenger (SAW) said, 'The Hellfire has 69 more portions than ordinary (worldly) fire, and all of them are as hot as this (worldly fire).'"
Abu Hurairah (radiAllahu anhu) reported that Allah's Messenger (salAllahu alayhi wasalam) said: "There was a dispute between Hell and Paradise during which Hell said, 'The haughty and the proud will find abode in me.' And Paradise said, 'The meek and the humble will find their abode in me.' Thereupon, Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, (addressing Hell) said, 'You are the means of My punishment by which I punish those of My servants whom I wish.' (and addressing Paradise), He said, 'You are My mercy by means of which I will show mercy to those whom I wish. And each one of you will be full.'"
We pray, and follow the commandments of Allah to avoid going to jahhanum altogether because we love and fear Allah so we should show the proper respect to Allah by worshipping Allah how he is deserved to be worshipped by following what Allah tells us will save us from his wrath, from his punishment.
None of us should say "well i believe in Allah and that is enough i dont need to pray or fulfill my obligations"
Not following these obligations takes one out of the fold of islam
Our emaan is our inward actions such as belief love and fear of Allah.
Islam is our outward actions such as prayer, fasting, giving charity.
When you say you love someone but you dont show them at all in anyway theu will not believe you but by doing actions, this is proof you do indeed love that person.
BOTH are needed to be a muslim they go hand in hand with eachother and neither one can be left out to be a true believer.
