piece of flesh for another forty days.  Then Allah sends an angel to write four words: He writes his deeds, time of death, means of livelihood, and whether he will be wretched or blessed (in the Hereafter).  Then the soul is breathed into his body.  So a man may do deeds characteristic of the people of the (Hell) Fire, so much so that there is only the distance of a cubit between him and it, and then what has been written (by the angel) surpasses; and so he starts doing deeds characteristic of the people of Paradise and enters Paradise.  Similarly, a person may do deeds characteristic of the people of Paradise, so much so that there is only the distance of a cubit between him and it, and then what has been written (by the angel) surpasses, and he starts doing deeds of the people of the (Hell) Fire and enters the (Hell) Fire.”  (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.4, Hadith No. 549)
