I have heard that it has been narrated from Imam Jafar Sadiq (peace be upon him) as the sixth Imam of Shia Islam that he said:

Solaiman bin Dawood (a.s.) is the last prophet who enters the heaven (Jannah).

But I wonder what the reason is that he will enter the heaven as the last prophet?

  • Can you provide a reference/link to the source of this narration?

In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful

In regards to the query that:

Why Solaiman bin Dawud(a.s.) is the last prophet who enters the heaven?

Briefly speaking, the response can be related to the properties and the equipment which Solaiman bin Dawud (a.s.) had. As a consequence, he will has a long audit because of them (in compare with other prophets). Therefore that’s why he is the last prophet who enters the heaven.

Reference link:


I actually heard this in one lecture on YouTube. The guy who was holding the lecture said that Sulayman (a.s.) will be the last among the prophets to enter heaven because of all of the things and abilities he got from Allah (s.w.t) in this world.

But this is just something that I heard, and Allah (s.w.t) knows best.
