The Person who the Fire is Forbidden to Burn

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم-   أَلاَ أُخْبِرُكُمْ بِمَنْ يَحْرُمُ عَلَى النَّارِ أَوْ بِمَنْ تَحْرُمُ عَلَيْهِ النَّارُ عَلَى كُلِّ قَرِيبٍ هَيِّنٍ لَيِّنٍ سَهْلٍ

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radi Allahu anhu) narrated the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said : ” Should I inform you about those whom the Hellfire is forbidden to burn or who is forbidden for the Fire? The fire is forbidden to touch every person who is amicable, soft-spoken, and easy to deal with.”[1]
