[The below is the Text from the Book]
Chapter 20: The Outcome of the Slaves is Unknown
 The People of Hadeeth believe and testify that the end of the slave is unknown. No one knows what his end shall be. They (People of Hadeeth) do not pass judgement on a specific person that he will be from the people of Paradise or from the people of Hell, because that is something which is hidden from them. They do not know in which state a person will die, whether it is upon Islaam or unbelief, so due to this fact they say:
“Indeed we are Believers, if Allaah wills.”
That is, from those Believers who will have a good end, if Allaah wills 
 TRANSLATORS NOTE ~ The Prophet(صلى الله عليه وسلم), said:
Do not be delighted by the actions of anyone until you see how he ends up”.

Chapter 21: The Ruling Upon On One Who Died Upon Belief Or Unbelief
[l16] And the People of Hadeeth witness for the one who dies upon Islaam that his end will be Paradise even if their fate was written by Allaah that they will be punished with the Fire for a period, as a result of their sins which they committed and did not repent from. They will eventually enter Paradise and no one from amongst the Muslims will remain in Hell eternally. This is a great blessing and favour from Allaah. If one dies upon unbelief, and Allaah’s protection is sought from this, he will be thrown into the Fire and he will not be saved from it, and he will stay there forever.
