According to Sidi Ibn Arabi, may Allah be Merciful to him, Paradise has 8 doors which relate to the number of the human organs: the eye, the ear, the tongue, the hand, the stomach, the genitlas, the leg and the heart. Therefore, those who use their organs according to the Law of Allah [Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala]shall enter through the corresponding door of paradise, and they may even enter through all 8 doors simultaneously if they have used all 8 of their organs accordingly.
On the otherhand, Hell has 7 doors, which also relate to the human organs, excluding the heart, since Allah Ta'ala does not condemn anybody for what they have in their hearts in so far as they do not use it against the Law. Allah says to His angels: 'Whenever My servant intends to do an evil act, do not record it against him, unless he actually does it, then mark it down as one evil act. And when he intends to do good but does not manage to do so then record it as one act of goodness, but if he does succeed, then write it down as ten good actions.' [Muslim, Kitab al-Imaan, No. 0233].
To follow the Law of Allah, however, one has to have faith in Him. Faith, according to one well known Hadith, is divided into 79 levels, the least of which is the removal of malevolent actions out of the path of others, and the greatest of which is [believing in and/or recital of] 'LA ILAHA ILLALLAH.... there is no god but Allah;' and between these 2 points are all the good deeds and decent qualities and morals.
