Salaam, Someone told me that only Muslims can go to Heaven but a thing just hit my mind that if a Person is born and raised in a country such as Israel where Jews are in a majority and he is the son of a poor Jew and he never left the country and died at the age of 40 . Shall he not go to heaven because he never recieved the messege of Allah ?

Those who haven't heard or received the message of Islam, will be given a chance in the judgment day to obey Allah.

Allah is Just, He doesn't punish or hold you accountable before you receive the message

Whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul. And whoever errs only errs against it. And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And never would We punish until We sent a messenger. 17.15

And those who disbelieved will be driven to Hell in groups until, when they reach it, its gates are opened and its keepers will say, "Did there not come to you messengers from yourselves, reciting to you the verses of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this Day of yours?" They will say, "Yes, but the word of punishment has come into effect upon the disbelievers. 39.71
