Prison for the believers?

It is mentioned that when al-Hafidh Ibn Hajr was the chief justice (of Egypt), one day he was passing through the market with a caravan, looking well groomed. So a Jew who was selling hot oil, looking very disheveled and dirty because of the oil, accosted him by grabbing the reins of his mule saying•►“Yaa Shaykhul-Islaam, you claim that your prophet said that the dunyaa is a prison for the mu’min 

and a jannah for the kaafir; so what type of prison are you in and what type of jannah am I in?“

He (Ibn Hajr) replied•►“Regarding what Allaah has prepared for me in the hereafter from its bliss, then it is as if I am in prison, and with regards to what Allaah has prepared for you in the hereafter from its punishment, then it is as if you are in jannah.” [🙂 ]

At which point the Jew became a Muslim.
