"I said, 'O Rasulullah, tell me one Godly deeds that can make me enter into heaven and keep me away form hell.' He said, 'You ask something right, but that things easy for those whom has been gived easeness by Allah.
You should worship Allah and not associate It with anything, establish Shalat, pay Zakat, Fast in the month of Ramadhan and go Hajj to the Baitullah.'
Then he (Prophet) said, 'Do you want me to tell you about the goodness matters? Fasting is shield. Almsgiving extinguish mistakes like water extinguish fire. And Shalat of someone in the midnight.'

I ask, 'O the Prophet of Allah, will we be tortured because of what our tongues say?'
