Jannah in Islaam #2

The Gates of Jannah

Gardens of perpetual bliss – they shall enter there, as well as the righteous among their fathers, their spouses and their offspring. And angels shall enter upon them from every gate.”
[Surat ar-Ra’d, 13: 23]

This is a reminder. Verily, for the righteous is a beautiful place of final return – garden of eternity, whose doors will always be open to them.”
[Surat Saad, 38: 49-50]

And those who feared their Lord will be led to the Garden in crowds until behold, they arrive there. Its gates will be opened, and its keepers will say, ‘Peace be upon you! Well have you done, enter here, to dwell eternally.’”
[Surat az-Zumar, 39: 73]

Sahl bin Sa’d [radiAllaahu ‘anhu] reported that the Prophet [sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wasallam] said:
Jannah has eight gates, and one of them is called ar-Rayyaan, through which none will enter except those who observe fasting.”
[Saheeh al-Bukhari]

Abu Hurayrah [radiAllaahu ‘anhu] narrated that the Prophet [sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wasallam] said:
Whoever spends two things in the way of Allaah will be called from the gates of Jannah and will be addressed, ‘O slave of Allaah, here is prosperity!’ So whoever was among the people who used to offer their prayers will be called from the gate of prayer; and whoever was among the people who used to participate in Jihad will be called from the gates of Jihad; and whoever was among those who used to observe fasts will be called from the gate of ar-Rayyaan; and whoever was among those who used to give in charity will be called from the gate of charity.” Abu Bakr [radiAllaahu ‘anhu] said, ‘Let my parents be sacrificed for you, Oh Allaah’s Messenger! No distress or need will befall him one will be called from those gates. Will there by anyone who will be called from all these gates?” The Prophet [sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wasallam] replied, “Yes. And I hope you will be one of them.
[Saheeh al-Bukhari]

‘Uqbah bin Amir [radiAllaahu ‘anhu] said: “We were entrusted with the task of tending the camels – On my turn, when I came back in the evening after grazing them in the pastures, I found Allaah’s Messenger [sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wasallam] standing and addressing the people. I heard these words of his:
If any Muslim performs ablution well, then stands and prays two rak’ahs, setting about them with his heart as well as his face, Jannah will be guaranteed to him.’ I said, ‘What a fine thing this is!’ A narrator who was before me said, ‘The first was even better than this.’ When I cast a glance, I saw that it was Umar [radiAllaahu ‘anhu] who said, ‘I see that you have just come and observed. If anyone among you performs the ablution, completes the ablution well and says, “I testify that there is no god but Allaah and that Muhammad is the servant of Allaah and His Messenger,” then the eight gates of Jannah will be opened for him and he may enter by whichever of them he wishes.’”
[Saheeh Muslim]

The gates of Jannah will be opened on Mondays and on Thursdays, and every servant of Allaah who associates nothing with Allaah will be forgiven, except for the man who has a grudge against his brother. About them it will be said, ‘Delay these two until they are reconciled. Delay these two until they are reconciled. Delay these two until they are reconciled.’”
[Saheeh Muslim, Malik and Abu Dawud]
