For verily, it has been confirmed in the Sahih that the Messenger of Allah said,

اعْمَلُوا وَسَدِّدُوا وَقَارِبُوا وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ أَحَدًا مِنْكُمْ لَنْ يُدْخِلَهُ عَمَلُهُ الْجَنَّة

They (the Companions) said, "Not even you O Messenger of Allah"

He replied,

وَلَا أَنَا إِلاَّ أَنْ يَتَغَمَّدَنِيَ اللهُ بِرَحْمَةٍ مِنْهُ وَفَضْل


Not even me, except if Allah covers me with mercy from Himself and grace.
