The great Sheikh Shibli Rahmatullahi Alaihi once said, ” One of my neighbours passed away. Soon thereafter I happened to see him in a dream and asked him, “What happened to you?”
“O Shibli, I have indeed passed through the most terrifying ordeal of great hardship. Even at the time of interrogation by the Angels Munkar and Nakeer, I experienced a terrible ordeal“.
I then thought to myself,
” O Allah, why am I suffering such hardship? Did I not die on Islam?”
Then I heard a voice which said,
“This is all because of your extreme lack of caution in the use of your tongue in the world“.
Thereupon, I asked him,
” May Allah have mercy upon you, pray! Who are you?”
“I am that person who had been created from the great number of salaat (Durood- To say Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) upon Rasulullah (Salallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) that you have recited. I have been commanded to hasten to your assistance whenever you should be in need of me”
