Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, a person may perform good deeds like the people of Paradise for a long time, then his deeds end up as the deeds of the people of Hellfire; and, indeed, a person may perform bad deeds like the people of Hellfire for a long time, then his deeds end up as the deeds of the people of Paradise.”

Alcoholic: “Since all of that is permissible, then why do you forbid us from alcohol, which consists of the above mentioned ingredients?”
Scholar: “If I poured water on topof you, would that hurt you?”
Alcoholic: “No it would not.”
Scholar: “And if I was to sprinkle some dirt in that, would you be hurt?”

Scholar: “But if I were to mix water and dirt together and through a process make a large brick from those two elements, and then were I to throw that large brick at you, would you be hurt?” Alcoholic: “That would kill me!”
Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with Him) reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said:
"In Paradise there is a street to which they would come every Friday. The north wind will blow and would scatter fragrance on their faces and on their clothes and would add to their beauty and loveliness, and then they would go back to their family after having an added lustre to their beauty and loveliness, and their family would say to them: By Allah, you have been increased in beauty and loveliness after leaving us, and they would say: By Allah, you have also increased in beauty and loveliness after us.
(Saheeh Al Muslim, Book #40 ('The Book Pertaining to Paradise, Its Description, Its Bounties and Its Intimates), Hadith # 6792).
Allah the Almighty says; “And pursue not that you have no knowledge of; surely the hearing, the sight, the heart- all of those shall be questioned of.” (17:36), (ولا تقف ما ليس لك به علم إن السمع والبصر والفؤاد كل أولئك كان عنه مسؤولا) الإسراء 36 . and; “Not so did you cover yourselves, lest your hearing, your eyes and your skins should bear witness against you; but you thought that Allah would never know much of the things that you were working.” (41: 22), ( وَمَا كُنتُمْ تَسْتَتِرُونَ أَنْ يَشْهَدَ عَلَيْكُمْ سَمْعُكُمْ وَلَا أَبْصَارُكُمْ وَلَا جُلُودُكُمْ وَلَكِن ظَنَنتُمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَعْلَمُ كَثِيراً مِّمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ ). (22- فصلت) and: “Say; ‘Think you, if Allah took away your hearing and your sight, and sealed up you hearts, who – a god other than Allah – could restore them to you?’” (6:46) (قل أرأيتم إن أخذ الله سمعكم وأبصاركم وختم على قلوبكم من إله غير الله يأتيكم به) الأنعام 46 .
What are the possible reasons behind advancing “hearing” over “sight” in Quran ? 1- Hearing develops before sight in the embryo stage , and it is the first sense that functions in life. The function of hearing starts immediately with the baby after deliver, in contrary to the eye which does not function the time the baby is brought to life. In other words, Allah the Almighty conveys to us that it is hearing that functions at first. If a disturbing sound is produced near the newly born baby, he/ she feels terrified and cries. But if a hand is approached near the same baby, he/ she does not move or sense any sort of danger…..
Ubaidullah ibn Abu Rafi, the freed slave of the Messenger of Allah, reported: The Haruriyya (al-khawarij) came out with Ali ibn Abu Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, and they said, “There is no rule but for Allah.” (12:40) Ali said, “A word of truth by which is intended falsehood. Verily, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, described some people and I recognized their description in these people. They say the truth with their words but it does not go beyond this (and he pointed to this throat). Among the most hateful of the creations of Allah is a black man among them whose hand looks like the teat of a goat.”

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Do not envy, and do not outbid each other, and do not hate, and do not turn away, and do not outsell each other, and be servants of Allah as brothers. The Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. He does not wrong him or humiliate him or look down upon him. Righteousness is here,” and he pointed to his chest three times. “It is sufficient evil for a person to look down upon his brother Muslim. All of the Muslim is sacred to another Muslim: his life, his wealth, and his honor.”
