This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


I am sorry for your loss.

Nobody can tell you what Allah does or will do. All you one can answer is, according to Islam, can someone who never heard of Islam go to heaven.

This would make your question similar to this one.

Similar things can be seen in the wikipedia page. I am always reluctant to site Wikipedia but this one gives faire references.

And more logically, if God is all merciful, I have trouble imagining Him punishing someone for not hearing about his message. Having a good opinion of Allah (حسن الظن بالله) is one of the most important deeds. Do good and live in peace.

  • I always prefer it if people read for themselves, the effort for the truth should be shared. But perhaps you're right. Though I cannot decide, which one do you consider the most relevant ? – ZakC Feb 16 '16 at 14:54
  • What ever you feel right. But, I'm sorry I'm voting to close this question as a duplicate of the question you've posted. – servant-of-Wiser Feb 16 '16 at 14:59

Those who never heard about Islam are excused, but they will be tested in the day of resurrection
