Hadith on Sirat: Believers purified by justice before entering Paradise

Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The believers will be saved from the Hellfire and they will be stopped at a bridge between Paradise and Hellfire. Then, they will justly retaliate against each other for wrongs committed between them in the world, until they are cleansed and purified for admittance into Paradise. By the One in whose hand is the soul of Muhammad, one of you will know his residence in Paradise better than his residence in the world.

عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَخْلُصُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ مِنَ النَّارِ فَيُحْبَسُونَ عَلَى قَنْطَرَةٍ بَيْنَ الْجَنَّةِ وَالنَّارِ فَيُقَصُّ لِبَعْضِهِمْ مِنْ بَعْضٍ مَظَالِمُ كَانَتْ بَيْنَهُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا حَتَّى إِذَا هُذِّبُوا وَنُقُّوا أُذِنَ لَهُمْ فِي دُخُولِ الْجَنَّةِ فَوَالَّذِي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ لَأَحَدُهُمْ أَهْدَى بِمَنْزِلِهِ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مِنْهُ بِمَنْزِلِهِ كَانَ فِي الدُّنْيَا
