On the authority of Abu Hurayrah who said that the Messenger of Allah ascended the minbar and said: “Amin, amin, amin.” So it was said: “O Messenger of Allah, when you ascended the minbar you said ‘Amin, Amin, Amin.” He replied: “Indeed Jibril came to me and said, ‘Whoever reaches the month of Ramadan and is not forgiven for his sins and so enters the Hell-fire, then may Allah distance him. Say, Amin.’ So I said Amin. He (i.e. Jibril) said: ‘If both or one of a person’s parents are still alive, and he does not honor them and thus dies entering the Hell-fire, then may Allah distance him. Say, Amin.’ So I said, Amin. He (i.e. Jibril) then said: ‘If you are mentioned in a person’s presence, and he doen not send blessings upon you and so dies entering the Hell-fire, may Allah distance him. Say, Amin.’ So I said, Amin.”
