It is narrated that Fazil ibn Ayaz who was a religious scholar went to visit one of his best students who was dying. Fazil started reciting Surah Ya-Sin, the student asked him not to recite it. Fazil told him: Recite La Elaha elallah but the student refused and died. Fazil was surprised and became sad. After a while Fazil saw his student in sleep whilst he was being taken to hell. Fazil asked him: What did you do? The student replied: 3 things I did; telling tales, jealousy and drinking wine. I had an illness and the doctor advised me to drink a certain amount of wine in a year to save my life and I followed his advice [2].
