Hadith Explanation

If Ships Sailed in Tears

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, "Verily the inhabitants of the Fire cry, so much that if ships were sailed into their tears, they would float, and verily they cry blood (instead of tears)." [Ibn Maajah, Kitaab az-Zuhd]

You should aid yourself through fear. Live with the fear of ending up in Hell and never coming out of it. Live with the fear of everlasting hunger and continuous thirst, with the fear of crying blood continually, so much so that if a ship were to be sent into it, it would float. When you are truly afraid of this, only then will you take the necessary steps to stay out of this danger that you have been warned about.

In addition to changing your beliefs and lifestyle, also make the supplication of Yusuf (alaihis salaam): "Cause me to die as a Muslim and join me with the righteous." [Al-Quran 12:101] Don't just sit around while the sweetness of Faith is missing.
