Whenever the believer fears the stages of the Day of Judgment, this look-alike will tell him not to fear or aggrieve. It will go on giving him glad tidings about good fortune and divine mercy.” “The accounting of deeds will be easy for him and he will be ordered to enter Paradise. This look-alike will walk in front of the believer and the latter will ask: How good you are! You were resurrected from my grave and you are providing me happiness and glad tidings of divine mercy continuously. I have seen everything. After all, who are you?

أَلا اِنَّ بَنِي آدَمَ خُلِقُوا عَلى طَبَقَاتٍ شَتَّى؛ مِنْهُمْ مَنْ يُولَدُ مُؤْمِنَاً وَيَحْيَا مُؤْمِنَاً وَيَمُوتُ مُؤْمِنَاً، وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يُولَدُ كافِرَاً وَيَحْيَا كافِرَاً وَيَمُوتُ كافِرَاً، وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يُولَدُ كافِرَاً وَيَحْيَا كافِرَاً وَيَمُوتُ مُؤْمِنَاً

Hazrat Ibrahim (a.s.) said, “O worshipper! when Allah holds a creature dear He delays the acceptance of his prayers so that he may continue to plead and supplicate Him. On the other hand when He dislikes a person He answers his prayers immediately or creates hopelessness in his heart so that he would stop praying.”
Imām Muhammad ibn ‘Alī al-Baqir (a.s.)
