Hadith on Destiny: People seal their fate with deeds at end of life

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, a man may act with the deeds of the people of Paradise for a long time, then he ends his life acting with the deeds of the people of Hellfire. And a man may act with the deeds of the people of Hellfire for a long time, then he ends his life acting with the deeds of the people of Paradise.”
