Believers getting punished in Jahaannam

Q: Someone told me that a believer won't feel pain in Jahaannam. Is there any Hadith e Mubarak to proof this and if someone uses it to belittle sins than how should one respond or rather think?

A: Jahannum is a place of punishment. It is reported in the Hadith that the fire of Jahannum is seventy times more severe than the fire of this world. We have been taught in the Mubaarak Hadith to beg Allah Ta'ala for protection from the fire of Jahannum.

People will be subjected to the punishment of Jahannum according to the crimes and sins they had committed in the world. A believer will not be punished in the way a disbeliever is punished.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
