Ways To Enter Jannah According To Quran And Sunnah
1. Aqeedah (Good Islamic creed)
The first matter about entering Paradise is to have proper Aqidah (Good Islamic creed) and valid righteous deeds because whoever follows the ways that lead to Paradise while his Aqidah is incorrect will fail to enter there. Allah the Almighty says:
Verily, faith alone does not take you to Paradise because Allah the Almighty has not mentioned faith without having accompanied it with the mention of righteous deeds.
The righteous deed that admits its doer to Paradise is what is done for the sake of Allah, and what corresponds with the Sunnah of the Noble Prophet.
In other words, the righteous deed is what is pure, what is done for the sake of Allah, what is right, and what matches the Sunnah.
There are more than thirty ways for being admitted to Jannah. The first one is faith and righteous deeds. Allah the Almighty says:
“But those who have faith and work righteousness, they are Companions of the Garden, therein shall they abide (for ever).”Surah Al- Baqarah, 82
Some scholars have defined taqwah as to obey Allah according to the Light received from Him (the Noble Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet), hoping for His reward, and to avoid disobeying Allah according the Light received from Him, fearing Him, apart from fearing for your health.
If you are a real believer, if you work righteousness and if you fear Allah, then, according to the definitions of Taqwah, those are two ways for entering Jannah. Allah the Almighty says:
“… And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger will be admitted to Gardens under which rivers flow.”Surah Al-Nisa’, 13
3. Obey Allah and His Messenger SAW
You should obey Allah and his Messenger in all the aspects of your life.
In Sahih Al-Bukhari, Abu Hurairah has transmitted that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“All of my ummah will enter Paradise except those who refuse. They asked him: ‘O Messenger of Allah, who would refuse?’ The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: ‘Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise and whoever disobeys me has refused.’”
Another way for entering Jannah is repentance. And Allah the Almighty says:
“Except those who repent and believe and work righteousness. Such will enter the Garden and they will not be wronged in the least.”Surah Maryam 60
5. Seeking Knowledge
Another way for entering Jannah is seeking knowledge for the sake of Allah; attending Islamic lectures only for the sake of Allah, getting to know Allah, His Orders and Prohibitions, the Sunnah of His Messenger and the rulings of Islam.
Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace said:
“Whoever follows a path to seek knowledge, Allah will make easy for him the path to Paradise.”Sunan al-Tirmidhi
6. Building Mosque
Another way for entering Paradise is building Masjid (Mosque).
When people were talking highly about Uthman Bin Affan, may Allah be pleased with him, as he was building the Prophet’s Mosque, he replied:
“You are overdoing it. I have heard the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say: ‘Whoever builds a Mosque seeking the pleasure of Allah, Allah builds a similar one for him in Paradise.’”Sahih Bukhari
7. Good conduct
Good conduct is a weighty way for entering Paradise.
Abu Umamah has transmitted that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a person who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right; a house in the middle of Paradise for a person who avoids lying even if he were joking; and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a person who has improved his character.”Sunan Abu Dawud]
So, good conduct is one of the ways for entering Paradise. Actually, high moral standards are an indication of faith, and whoever has better conduct than you, has deeper faith than yours.
8. Maintain Tahara
Maintain Tahara (cleanness, purity) after every hadath (a state of dirtiness, impurity that prevents a person from performing some kinds of acts of worship), and to pray two raka’ah (units) after each adhan (call to prayer).
9. Going To Mosque To Perform prayer
The fourteenth way is to go to the Mosque and return from it to perform the prayers. Abu Hurairah has transmitted that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“For the one who goes to the Mosque in the morning or in the evening, Allah prepares a place in Paradise whenever he goes to the Mosque in the morning and the evening.”Sahih Muslim
Another way is to prostrate yourself frequently to Allah. Imam Muslim reported in his Sahih from Rabi’ah Ibn Ka’ab Al-Aslami who said:
“I used to serve the Prophet in the night, and once I went and brought him water for wudu (ablution)’, and I asked him:
‘O Messenger of Allah, I wish so much to be your companion in Jannah. The Prophet asked: ‘Is there anything else?’ I said: ‘This is all I want, your companionship in Jannah.’ The Prophet then said: ‘Then assist me for your sake by performing much prostration to Allah.’”Sahih Muslim
Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, has transmitted that: The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“Whoever performs Hajj and does not commit any rafath (obscenity) or fusuq (transgression) returns (home) as the day his mother brought him to this world.” [Sahih Bukhari]
12. Ayatul Kursi
Recite the Ayatul-Kursiy after each obligatory prayer.
13. La Ilaha Illallah
“Whoever truly said: ‘There is no god but Allah’ will enter Paradise.’ They asked: ‘How to say it truly?’ He said: ‘When it keeps you away from what Allah prohibited.” [Agreed upon]
14. Sayyidul Istigfar
The master supplication for forgiveness.
“Whoever says it during the day with firm belief in it and dies on that day before the evening, will be one of the people of the Paradise. Whoever says it at night with firm belief in it and dies during that night, will be one of the people of the Paradise.”Sahih Bukhari
15. 12 Sunnah voluntarily Rak’ahs
Another way to enter Jannah is to perform voluntarily twelve raka’ah (units) every day and these are the Sunnah prayers.
16. Spread Salam
Another way is to spread the greeting of peace, visit relatives and pray at night, when people are asleep.
17. Speak the truth
Ubadah Bin al-Samit reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“If you guarantee me six things on your part, I shall guarantee you Paradise.
Speak the truth when you talk; keep a promise when you make it; when you are trusted with something, do not betray your trust; avoid immorality; lower your gaze; and restrain your hands from injustice.” [Musnad Ahmad]
18. Related to women
Pay attention to what Ibn Hibban reported in his Sahih from Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, who has transmitted that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“If a woman prays her five daily prayers; fasts in the month of Ramadan; guards her private parts and obeys her husband, she will enter Paradise through any of its Gates that she wishes.”
19. Taking care of 3 daughters
Anas Bin Malik has transmitted that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“Whoever has three daughters or three sisters, cares for them and disciplines them, he and I shall be like this in Paradise” – and he put his index and middle fingers together.” [Musnad Ahmad]
20. Sponsor an orphan
Sahl has transmitted that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“I and the one who sponsors an orphan will be in Paradise like these two’ – and he gestured with his forefinger and middle finger, holding them together.”Sahih Bukhari
21. Visit a sick person or a brother in Islam.
Abu Hurairah transmitted that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
“To whoever visits a sick person or visits a brother in Islam a caller (Angel) cries: ‘May you be happy! May your steps be blessed! And may you occupy a dignified position in Paradise!”Sunan al-Tirmidhi
22. Tasbih, Tahmid and Takbir
Abdullah Ibn Amr, may Allah be pleased with him, has transmitted that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:
- “‘There are two qualities that make a Muslim who acquires them enter Paradise, and they are simple and easy.
- He should glorify Allah (say Subhanallah) ten times immediately after each prayer, and praise Him (say Alhamdulillah) ten times, and extol Him (say Allahu Akbar) ten times.’
- I saw the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, counting this on his fingers. He said:
- ‘That makes one hundred and fifty on the tongue and one thousand five hundred (hasanat) on the scales.” [Sunan al-Tirmidhi]
