Narrated Safwan bin Muhriz:
 
While Ibn Umar was performing the Tawaf, a man came up to him and said, "O Abu Abdur-Rahman!" or said, "O Ibn Umar! Did you hear anything from the Prophet(saws) about An-Najwa?" Ibn Umar said, "I heard the Prophet(saws)  saying, 'The believer will be brought near his Lord." (Hisham, a subnarrator, said reporting the Prophet's words), "The believer will come near(his Lord) till his Lord covers him with His Screen and makes him confess his sins.(Allah will ask him) 'Do you know(that you did) such-an-such sin." He will say twice, "Yes, i know i did commit those sins." Then Allah will say, "I did screen your sins in the world and I forgive them for you today." Then the record of his good deeds will be folded up[i.e. the record(Book) of his good deeds will be given to him]. As for the others or the disbelievers, it will be announced publibly before witnesses: "These are ones who lied against their Lord."
 
[Sahih Bukhari, vol. 6, nr. 207]
An-Najwa: the private talk between Allah and His slave on the Day of Resurrection, It also means, a secret counsel or conference or consultation.
