The idea that those who believe and do good deeds are promised eternal paradise is repeated throughout the Qu'ran. There are probably too many examples to list here, but one that I think best captures what you're looking for can be found in Surah Luqman:
Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds - for them are the Gardens of Pleasure.
Wherein they ...
It seems to me that not all the Muslims (i.e. being titled as Muslim, Shia or Sunni) are easily sent to heaven and not all those titled as Non-Muslims are sent to hell. It depends. Allah has explained this as:
If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah),
never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in
Generally every human will enter to Barzakh universe and waiting until the Judgement day. At Judgement day people will be Judged and then enter Paradise or Hell.
But if you want to know the details they are too much to write here. So I suggest to study this book for detailed steps after death:
The Hereafter (Ma'ad)
Atheist will be accused of not using ...
What happens to people who have never heard of Islam?
Those who have never heard of Islam will not be punished for their sins if they died in the state of disbelief. Allah says (what means):
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. ...
In regards to spousal abuse changing the doctrinal position, the answer is no. Prior to entering Jannah, all potential causes of a future dispute will have been settled:
عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ: إِذَا خَلَصَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ مِنَ النَّارِ حُبِسُوا بِقَنْطَرَةٍ بَيْنَ الْجَنَّةِ ...
Praise Be to Allah.
First of all, betting is equivalent to gambling, and it is haraam in Islam.
Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has said in the Qur'an:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ وَالْأَنصَابُ وَالْأَزْلَامُ رِجْسٌ مِّنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
"O you who have believed, indeed, ...
"Good deeds" without conscious of God is not regarded as "good deeds" in Islam, that's where the confusion lies.
In Islam you are not judged based on actions, rather based on intention.
Al-Baqara: Verse 225: لَا يُؤَاخِذُكُمُ اللَّهُ بِاللَّغْوِ فِي
أَيْمَانِكُمْ وَلَٰكِنْ يُؤَاخِذُكُمْ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ قُلُوبُكُمْ ۗ
وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ حَلِيمٌ ...
Quran promises of Reward to believers, and punishment to disbelievers.
Precision in description
The arabic words mentioned in Quran about entering Paradise or Hellfire are:
Khalid (adjective): to remain/stay for a long period of time.
Abad (adverb): Eternally, without an end.
Now if you study the way those two words were used to describe the stay in ...
There are many such verses in the Quran:
إِنَّ الْمُتَّقِينَ فِي مَقَامٍ أَمِينٍ ... لَا يَذُوقُونَ فِيهَا الْمَوْتَ إِلَّا الْمَوْتَةَ الْأُولَىٰ ۖ وَوَقَاهُمْ عَذَابَ الْجَحِيمِ
Indeed, the righteous will be in a secure place; ... They will not taste death therein except the first death, and He will have protected them from the punishment of Hellfire.
People will not be punished for sins they were forgiven, as can be seen in many verses:
Their (disbelivers/sinners) requital is that there shall be upon them the curse of Allah, the angels, and all mankind. They will remain in it [forever], and their punishment shall not be lightened, nor will they be granted any respite, except those who repent after ...
We have evidence of the Prophet (SAW) seeing the people of Paradise and Hell-fire:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "I looked at Paradise and saw that the majority of its residents were the poor; and I looked at the (Hell) Fire and saw that the majority of its residents were women." (Sahih Bukhari)
We also know the gates to paradise (and by extension also Hell) ...
Why people suffer is directly addressed in the Qur'an: it's part of being tested prior to the afterlife.
And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return." Those ...
According to Qur'an, Surat 'Ali `Imran, Ayah 85:
And whoever desires other than
Islam as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the
Hereafter, will be among the losers.
And confirmed by the Hadith in Sahih Muslim, The Book of Faith, Hadith 293:
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنَّهُ
Please read carefully from Surat Al-Baqarah 2/30 to Surat Al-Baqarah 2/39. Then watch this video: by Prof. Jeffrey Lang. It is a long video (1.5 hour), but it is very enlightening, please watch it until the end.
As a short answer, we are not on Earth because of the sin of Adam and Eve (peace be upon them). We are here to be tested individually. Mankind is ...
Initially you’d better pay attention to the verse below regarding the goal of creation.
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ ﴿٥٦ / And I did
not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. (56)
So in accordance with the above-mentioned verse, the target of the creation is related ...
One great thing about you is that you realize the significance of what most people consider as a "small" sin. You take this "small" sin so seriously up to the point where you are afraid of the consequences, especially in the after life. Thus, you decided to take on the path of repentance seriously. At this point, I believe you are already ...
What I understand from Surah 25 - Verse 16 in Quran is that anything we wish/desire in Heaven will be provided to us and that is for an eternity. Doesn't that sound great? But in my opinion our very best reward will be to be forgiven and accepted by The Creator.
The important thing here is to pay great attention to the Verse 61 of Surah 56 (please read the ...
Belief in Allah is not sufficient to bring you into the fold of Islam. It must also be accompanied by the worship of Allah alone.
The disbelievers from the Quraish believed in Allah, but they were still coined disbelievers because they used to worship idols along with Allah:
قُلْ مَن يَرْزُقُكُم مِّنَ السَّمَاء وَالأَرْضِ أَمَّن يَمْلِكُ السَّمْعَ ...
This story is mentioned in an older version printed (not revised) and has a note from the revisor of the book (Mohyi Addin Misto) that it is not the real version from Imam Althahabi.
The revised version does not have this story and many other stories that do not have authentic sources, which does not match the style of Imam AlThahabi as he is known for his ...
Whether a dead person's soul travels back to Earth to visit family or friends is a matter of the unseen that only Allah knows that we would only come to know through revelations from Allah to His prophets or messengers. In the absence of any such revelations, one will not be able to tell the cause of seeing deceased people in one's dream.
The potential of ...
Yes. You can never be as strong as God. The want is baseless. It is also arrogant. In Islam, all the creation is inferior to Allah. So, it is wrong to want to be Allah. And there is a verse in the Quran that says people will be purified before they enter the heaven. So, I think people of paradise won't have such wish.
It is permissible, on account of the Prophet who sacrificed on behalf of the Ummah. The hadith reference:
عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالَ ضَحَّى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ يَوْمَ عِيدٍ بِكَبْشَيْنِ فَقَالَ حِينَ وَجَّهَهُمَا " إِنِّي وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِي فَطَرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ حَنِيفًا وَمَا أَنَا مِنَ ...
The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) himself performed Udhiya/Qurbani on behalf of his Ummah and family members - both the living and deceased. (Muslim, Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah and others). In the narration recorded by Imam Muslim, the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) laid down the ram, and slaughtered it ...
As stated in Surah Al Asar(https://quran.com/103/3?translations=20) the basic requirements for successfully entring jannah are:
1. To have Faith means to be muslim
2. Good Deeds
3. Keep reminding each other of Akhirah
4. Have patience in this life as it is a test
These 4 things are required to pass the test of life.
As for salah, it is very important part ...
There is no mention of it in the Quran. There is no saheeh(authentic) hadiths that say this only fabricated ones. They are:
It was narrated by al-Tabaraani, al-Haakim and others that Ibn 'Abbas said that the Prophet said:
“Love the Arabs for three reasons, because I am an Arab, the Qur’aan is Arabic and the speech of the people of Paradise is Arabic.”
It seems Islam Q&A fatwa 21672 is the one being referred to here. They write:
It was narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) that the intercession of some people will not be accepted on the Day of Resurrection, including those who cursed a great deal. Muslim narrated that Abu’l-Darda’ said: “I heard the Messenger of ...
Yes brother it is true as Muslims we should not claim to know the unseen as that is beyond us and Allah's domain, although Allah has reviled the glorious Quran and in it he has stated that the only religion acceptable in the eyes of Allah is Islam. This is the motivation that Scholars use to back such statements.
Further more it is clearly stated in the ...
Islam is really a moderate and peaceful religion. Islam doesn't throw you to Hell directly as God is Merciful and He loves the humans. According to Prophet Muhammad(SAW), Allah loves His creatures "Humans" more than the love of seventy mothers. Here it is human not Muslim. If you are atheist, Jew whoever. Allah loves you. Did you know about such a ...
