I have heard the there are more than one gate to paradise or if I am not mistaken, there are 7.

If so, then what are their names?

There are in fact eight doors, four of the names are agreed up by the scholars, the names of the others are disagreed up by the those who explain the Ahadeeth. I will mention six of the names:

  1. الصلاة Salat

  2. الجهاد Jihad

  3. الصدقة Assadaqah

  4. الريان Ar-Rayyan

  5. الأيمن Al Ayman

  6. باب الكاظمين الغيظ
