Details of the Question

What will happen if the sins and thawabs of a person are equal on the Scale/Mizan on the Day of Judgment?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The pre-requisite of entering Paradise is belief. If a believer is a sinner, he will enter Paradise after he is punished. All kinds of troubles, illnesses and misfortunes that hit man causes his sins to be decreased. Similarly, the penalty he incurs in the grave will also decrease his sins.  

The degrees, littleness and multitude of sins vary from person to person. Therefore, some people finish their penalty in the grave and go to Paradise directly. Those who have a lot of sins will go to Paradise after the gathering Place, some at the gate of Hell and some after remaining in Hell for a while according to the degrees of their crimes and sins.

It varies from person to person and according to their states. We should know that Allah is just; He does not wrong anybody. Everybody will be punished based on their degrees.

When a person whose deeds are equal remains in the horrible Gathering Place even for a while, his sins will decrease; thus, his thawabs will be heavier and he will enter Paradise inshallah.

In addition, Allah states the following in a sacred hadith: “My mercy prevails over my wrath.” Therefore, we can say that a person whose deeds are equal will attain salvation because we hope that Allah will treat him with His mercy.

We expect his pardoning and mercy.
