On the Day of Resurrection, only those who come to God with a healthy heart will be saved. God says:

"The Day on which neither wealth nor sons will be of any use, except for whoever brings to God a sound heart." [Quran 26:88-89]

In defining the healthy heart, the following has been said: "It is a heart cleansed from any passion that challenges what God commands, or disputes what He forbids.
