IMAM TIRMIDHI narrates that the Prophetﷺ ordered people to ‘Be modest before Allah, as is His due.’ The Prophetﷺ then explained that ‘Modesty before Allah means protecting the head and all that is in it, and protecting the stomach and all that is inside it. Furthermore, you should remember death and decay, for one whose eyes are set on the Hereafter keeps away from worldliness. One who accomplishes all of this is one who is modest before Allah, as is His due.’
The Path to Paradise is an elaborate commentary on the aforementioned hadith. It covers Divine and Prophetic injunctions, as well as scholarly discussions relating to a variety of subjects, such as having pure belief in Allah; the various facets of spiritual purification; how to use the bodily parts in a lawful manner; maintaining honest financial transactions; the rules of good social conduct; and the remembrance of death and rulings connected to it. The treatise ends with a detailed outline of the substantial events heralding the End of Time and the events of the life after death: in the grave and on the Day of Judgement, and a description of the final abodes of Heaven and Hell.
