Chapter Summary

The inhabitants of Hell don't see the trees and rivers that are close to them but they only see what's far away from them, at a distance equal to the seven. Whomever God the Sublime knew that if he were to grow up, he'd believe in Muḥammad-God's blessings and peace be upon him he's one of the people of Paradise. The bondsman undertakes actions in the House of the world, and castles are then built for him in Hell. If he repents of these actions or undertakes an upright action that God accepts from him, the castles that were built for him in Hell disappear and castles are built for him in Paradise. The believer, if he commits a sin, must be aware that he has a Master Who exercises power over him.
