Explanation of the Hadîth – Shall I not inform you of whom is prohibited to fire and fire is prohibited to him.
On the authority of Abdul-llaah bin Mas’ood-Allaah is pleased with him- the Messenger of Allaah- peace is upon him- said: “shall I not inform you of whom is prohibited to fire and fire is prohibited to him? Every [person] who is close [to people], of a soft nature and is easy to approach”.
This hadeeth is in Sunan At-Tirmithee no 2488 and Al-Albaanee authenticated it due to the number of supporting narrations in As-Silsilah As-Saheehah no 938.
Al-Mubaarakfuree said in his explanation of this hadeeth in Tufatul-Ahwathee: ie the fire is forbidden on everyone who is close to people, easy-going, forbearing, tranquil, affable and of a generous nature.
Notice: obviously providing that this person is free from shirk and innovation or other causes of entering the hell or he committed those causes but qualified to intercession or Allaah forgives him his sins.
And Allaah knows best
