FAQ on Heaven and Hell

Question:Who will go to Hell and who will enter Paradise

Answer:The Prophet said one statement and I said another. The Prophet said "Whoever dies while still invoking anything other than Allah as a rival to Allah, will enter Hell (Fire)." And I said, "Whoever dies without invoking anything as a rival to Allah, will enter Paradise." - Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 24.

Question: For whom is Hell Forbidden

Answer: The Prophet (saws) said, "If anybody comes on the Day of Resurrection who has said: La ilaha illal-lah, sincerely, with the intention to win Allah's Pleasure, Allah will make the Hell-Fire forbidden for him." - Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Number 431

Here we should note that when a person is sincere, he follows what Allah has revealed, and he is always on the right path. Obviously when a person is on right path, he would be rewarded with Paradise.

Question: Isnt it that Muslims who do not obey Allah will remain in Hell for some days then they will Enter Paradise?

Answer: No it is not so. This is clear from this hadith: The Prophet; said, "The people of Paradise will enter Paradise, and the people of the (Hell) Fire will enter the (Hell) Fire: then a call-maker will get up (and make an announcement) among them, 'O the people of the (Hell) Fire! No death anymore ! And O people of Paradise! No death (anymore) but Eternity." - Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Number 552.

No where are there any other hadiths or any verse in Quran, which say that Muslims will surely enter Jannah (paradise).
