Concerning the saying of Allaah There is not one of you but will pass over it (Hell)

I read this verse in Surah Maryam:

{There is not one of you but will pass over it Wariduha (Hell); this is with your Lord; a Decree which must be accomplished. Then We shall save those who use to fear Allh and were dutiful to Him. And We shall leave the Zlimn (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.) therein (humbled) to their knees (in Hell).}(Maryam 19:71-72)

I would like to know the meaning of this verse, especially the meaning of Wariduha. In At-Takhwif Minan-Nar, Ibn Rajab states that the scholars differ concerning the meaning of Wurud: Does it mean to enter the Fire, which would mean that both the believers and the disbelievers will enter the Fire, and then Allaah Almighty will save the believers from it? Or does it mean crossing the path, which is like the edge of a sword, and across which the first group of believers will cross like lightening, the second like wind, the third like the best of horses, the forth like the best of camels and other animals, and then the angels will pass?



There are authentic Hadiths that clearly show that Wurud is referring to the passing over the path, which is erected over the Hellfire may Allaah Almighty protect us from it. People will go across it, and their speed will be according to their deeds, a fact that we learn from Hadiths
