Ways to Enter Paradise (pt 1)

Ways to Enter Paradise (pt 1), according to the Quran and Sunnah! :)

01: Shirk is the MOST dangerous sin anyone could ever commit, and it must be AVOIDED! Shirk happens when one associate Allah the Al-Mighty with other beings or items.

Allah has said that He forgives all sins committed by humans, but not shirk. And beware; shirk-doers will enter Hell-fire (nauzubillah), IF they do not repent (taubah).

Related verse from the Quran:
“Allah will not forgive the sin of considering something equal to Him (shirk), but He forgives the other sins of whomever he wants” [ An-Nisa 4:116]

Narrated by Jabir (r.a): The Prophet (s.a.w) said : “Whoever meets Allah (on the day of Judgement) not having associated anyone with Him (in worship), shall enter Jannah / Paradise; and whoever meets Him having committed shirk in any way, will enter Hell-Fire” [ Muslim ]

02: Seeking knowledge of the Deen is a duty upon every Muslim and it’s a key to God’s beautiful Paradise! With the power of knowledge, we as righteous Muslims are able to perform our duties in obedience to Him.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Whoever goes down a path / road searching for knowledge, Allah will make it easy for him to Jannah (Paradise).” [Sahih Muslim Vol. 03, # 527 ]

“Knowledge is the Road to Jannah,
Islam is the vehicle that takes you to the destination,
Quran and Sunnah are our maps,
Our scholars are the ones who give directions,
To get to our ultimate final destination – JANNAH”

03: Nobody is perfect, and everybody makes mistakes. In order to purify ourselves, there’s only one way – Taubah (Repentance)!
Ask for forgiveness from Allah anywhere and at anytime, insyallah, He is always there to listen to us and that will take us to Paradise. Take note that there are 3 conditions to observe in order for your taubah to be accepted by Allah:

1) To stop committing it (the sin)
2) To feel sorry for committing it (regret)
3) To decide / promise to recommit it

04: Giving salaam of peace to fellow Muslims may grant you a place in Paradise! So whoever or wherever it may be, smile, and say “Assalamualaikum!” Practice this in your everyday life and insyallah, it’ll be more joyous for you.

05: Animals are beautiful and magnificent creations of Allah and they too, posses feelings! As righteous Muslims, we are taught to take care, love and have mercy on ALL kinds of animals; cats, goats, dogs and even small insects! So the next time you see a starving, meowing cat by the sidewalk, why not offer some food for it? With that minor action, Allah might just grant you Paradise, insyallah.
