The following question was answered by Shaykh Mustafa Jaffer

Salaams & Duas
Ummulbanin Merali - Moderator - 'Aalim Network


There are many places in Iraq where it is said that if you recite dua 
at these places then hell is haraam for you.  I have also heard that 
if you recite dua Jawshan - e - Kabeer on the three principal Shab - 
e - Kadr nights then the fire of hell will refuse to touch you.  But, 
a lot of sinful people also do these activities, how can they be 
promised heaven without punishment?


First and foremost, there is assumption in the question that if Hell is
prohibited on someone, it automatically warrants entry into Paradise. This
is not so as there is also A'araf to think of.

Secondly, there are verses in the Holy Quran which say who will be banished
to the fire of Hell. These include people who comitted acts that many of us
may find ourselves committing htem quite often (May the Almighty protect
us). For example, verse 50:24-26 which says,

' (It will be commanded) Cast ye two (angels) into hell every ingrate
rebel; the forbidder of good, the transgressor, the doubter; who did set up
with God other gods, then cast him ye two into the severe chastisement.'

We find there are so many actions and deeds in our life that will (God
forbid) result in the punishment of the Fire of Hell. Thus our only
recourse is to the grace and mercy of the Almighty and this we invoke with
Duas and other acts as mentioned in your question. We only hope and pray
that Allah will accept our attempts to invoke His mercy and that He will
forgive us our shortcomings - Amen
