I think this is very misleading.  There should be a disclaimer or something to say that these might be the consequences for some people, otherwise it makes it seems as if these are actually the consequences of sins for sure.

23. His heart is always in turmoil.


The fact that his heart is in turmoil is a good thing because it proves that his soul is unsettled and he knows that what he has done is wrong.  This feeling alone is enough for people to repent at times and stop sinning.

25. Despairs of the mercy of Allah Ta’ala, and because of this, dies without having repented.

Some people may well despair (which is wrong) but I am sure some people are still able to repent.  This is because there are many verses in the Qur’aan which state how Merciful our Lord is, and there are numerous ahadith to this effect too.  For instance, like the following (I am sure there are more appropriate ahadith which support my point, but this is the first one that springs to mind), whose meaning is:

“Among those who came before you was a man who killed 99 people. He then asked to be guided to the most prolific worshipper from the inhabitants of the earth, and he was directed to a monk. He went to him and told him that he had killed 99 people, and he asked whether it was possible for him to repent. The monk said, ‘No.’ The man killed him, thus making him the 100th victim. He then asked to be directed to the most knowledgeable of the Earth’s inhabitants, and he was guided to a scholar. He went to him and told him that he had killed 100 people, and he asked whether it was possible for him to repent. The scholar said, ‘Yes, and who will stand between you and repentance. Go to such and such land, for in it dwell a people who worship Allah, so go and worship Allah with them. And do not return to your land, for it is indeed a land of evil.’ He left, and when he reached the halfway point of his journey, he died. The angels of Mercy and the angels of Punishment disputed with one another [in regard to his case]. The angels of Mercy said, ‘He came to us repentant, advancing with his heart towards Allah.’ The angels of Punishment said, ‘Indeed, he never performed any good deeds.’ Then an angel came in the form of a human being, and both groups of angels asked him to be the judge between them. He said, ‘Measure the distance between the two lands. Whichever land he is closer to is the land that he is closer to [in terms of being of its people]. They then measured the distance and found that he was closer to the land that he was heading towards, and so it was the angels of Mercy who then took his soul.” Reported by both al-Bukhaariyy and Muslim.

SubhanAllaah, who amongst us does not sin??  I think it is important to mention that Allaah ta^ala is indeed Merciful and that Islaam is a forgiving religion, as there are some non-Muslims who come on to this site and by reading the above quoted statement from the link given, may believe in it literally.  I have also come across many Muslims who are in a state of 'despair' because they think that Allaah ta^ala Will not Forgive them, and it’s by showing them verses in the Qur’aan and pointing out various ahadith, that they realise how wrong they are.

'If he woke up and had enough food for the day and shelter (a roof over his head) and he does not fear for his safety, then it is as if he has been given the dunya.'
