I have always wondered about this statement : All Muslims Go To Heaven. I hear some say its only the ones that do the 5 pillars and others say that it is ever muslim who is a believer. I would like to have a grasp around this answert, if anyone out there knows.

Al Salam Alaykom, yes according to Islam all the Muslims would In Sha Allah enter Jannah, provided they were sincere in their faith that there is no God but Allah (La Ilah Illa Allah) with believing about Islamic pillars. However, some we know would go to Hell first to pay their deeds than go to heaven. I can provide you the sources from the Quran and Hadith if you wish, just please reply asking. May Allah bless.

Al Salam Alaykom and thanks for the dua, May Allah Give you as such and more..

There follows a brief summary of the Islamic view regarding a guarantee of one’s destiny + the opposite + an explanation what should a Muslim do between those two feelings.

Islam offers a guarantee to every sincere Muslim who obeys Allaah and remains in this state of devotion until he dies, that he will definitely enter Paradise. Allaah says in the Qur’aan (interpretation of the meanings):

“But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, We shall admit them to the Gardens under which rivers flow (i.e., in Paradise), to dwell therein forever. Allaah’s promise is the truth, and whose words can be truer than those of Allaah? (Of course, none).” [al-Nisa’ 4:122]

“Allaah has promised those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, that for them there is forgiveness and a great reward (i.e., Paradise).” [al-Maa’idah 5:9]

“(They will enter) ‘Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens), which the Most Beneficent (Allaah) has promised to His servants in the unseen: verily, His promise must come to pass.” [Maryam 19:61]

“Say: ‘Is that (torment) better, or the Paradise of Eternity promised to the muttaqeen (pious and righteous persons)? It will be theirs as a reward and final destination.” [al-Furqaan 25:15]

“But those who fear Allaah and keep their duty to their Lord (Allaah), for them are built lofty rooms, one above another, under which rivers flow (i.e., Paradise). (This is) the Promise of Allaah, and Allaah does not fail in (His) promise.” [al-Zumar 39:20]

Islam also guarantees the disbeliever who ignores the commands of Allaah that he will definitely enter Hell. Allaah says (interpretation of the meanings):

“Allaah has promised the hypocrites, men and women, and the disbelievers, the Fire of Hell, therein shall they abide. It will suffice them. Allaah has cursed them and for them is the lasting torment.” [al-Tawbah 9:68]

“But those who disbelieve, for them will be the Fire of Hell. Neither will it have a complete killing effect on them so that they die, nor shall its torment be lightened for them. Thus do We requite every disbeliever!” [Faatir 35:36]

Allaah will say to the disbelievers on the Day of Judgement (interpretation of the meaning):

“This is Hell which you were promised! Burn therein this Day, for that you used to disbelieve!” [Yaa-Seen 36:63-64]

Allaah will not go back on His promise to either the believers or the disbelievers. He describes how both of them will be at the end of the Day of Judgement (interpretation of the meaning):

“And the dwellers of Paradise will call out to the dwellers of the Fire (saying): ‘We have indeed found true what our Lord had promised us; have you also found true, what your Lord promised (warnings, etc.)?’ They shall say, ‘Yes.’ Then a crier will proclaim between them: ‘The Curse of Allaah is on the zaalimeen (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.).” [al-A’raaf 7:44]

Everyone who believes and does righteous deeds, and dies in this state, will definitely enter Paradise. Everyone who disbelieves and does evil deeds, and dies in this state, will definitely enter Hell.

One of the great guiding principles of Islam is that the believer should tread a path between fear and hope. He should not take it for granted that he will enter Paradise, because this will make him complacent, and he does not know in what state he will die. Nor should he assume that he is going to Hell, because this is despairing of the mercy of Allaah, which is forbidden. So the believer does righteous deeds, and hopes that Allaah will reward him for them, and he avoids evil deeds out of fear of the punishment of Allaah. If he commits a sin, he repents in order to gain forgiveness and protect himself from the punishment of Hell. Allaah forgives all sins and accepts the repentance of those who repent. If a believer fears that the good deeds he has sent on before him are not enough, as you suggest, then he will increase his efforts, in fear and hope. No matter how many righteous deeds he has sent on before him, he cannot rely on them and take them for granted, or else he will be doomed. He keeps striving and hoping for reward, and at the same time he fears lest his deeds be contaminated with any element of showing off, self-admiration, or anything that will lead to them being rejected by Allaah. Allaah describes the believers (interpretation of the meaning):

“… those who give that (their charity) which they give (and also do other good deeds) with their hearts full of fear (whether their alms and charity, etc.) have been accepted or not), because they are sure to return to their Lord (for reckoning).” [al-Mu’minoon 23:60]

So the believer keeps on striving, fearing and hoping, until he meets his Lord, believing in Tawheed (Divine Unity) and doing righteous deeds, and earns the pleasure of his Lord and Paradise. If you think about the matter, you will realize that these are the right motives for action, and that righteousness cannot be achieved in this life in any other way.

Al hamdulilah may Allah bless the believers, inshallah I would like to add to the brother AbduAllah beautiful answer. Reported on the authority of Abu Huriah," A Bedouin approached the Rasul saws and asked" what must I do to gain paradise?" The Rasul saws replied: believe nothing derserves to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger. Pray five times a day, Fast ramadan, pay zakat, make hajj. The Bedouin asked is that all? The Rasul swas replied yes. The bedouin said that is all I'm going to do nothing more, then he walked away. The Rasul saws then said, if he does what he said he will enter paradise." Salaam

Also, there is a hadith qudsi that states the Rasul saws said on the day judgement that Allah said to Adam. Seperate your children those that goes to paradise and those for hellfire. Adam then Asked how to do this? Allah said out of every one thousand nine hundred and ninety nine for hellfire, one for paradise. When the companions heard this they became distraught. The Rasul saws then said, everyone in my ummah will go to paradise accept those who refuse. One of the sahabah asked, who would refuse? The Rasul replied, those who disobey me has refused."salaam

so the mass murdering muslims of the world, usama bin laden and abu bakr al-baghdadi will eventually go to heaven? but the likes of ghandi and mother teresa will be forever in hell?

hey muslim minnesota, if you google quran only muslims, will all muslims go to heaven. they have 'proofs' from the koran saying no. just if you are curious to see a different take.

Produce your proof from Quran or Hadith otherwise I won't accept your argument and will take it as a baseless opinion. Others may wish to accept your argument as they choose.

dude, it's not my arguement or opinion. my opinion is this is all silly. there is no heaven and hell. sorry bad puncuation. those are questions in the first paragraph.

lol. and i put 'links' instead of 'likes'.

(Jul 01 at 11:13) mikejm4 mikejm4's gravatar image

If I am a cruel leader (I am the king and make the laws like pharoah) of a nation and I treat people badly. How is it bad "for me" that I am cruel to them?

(Jul 01 at 11:20) abdul_wasay ♦ abdul_wasay's gravatar image

it's not bad for you? i'm confused. is your point, that without hell, ultimately there is no justice for some?

(Jul 01 at 11:28) mikejm4 mikejm4's gravatar image

is that the only reason you can think of?

(Jul 01 at 11:29) abdul_wasay ♦ abdul_wasay's gravatar image

that it's a deterent?

(Jul 01 at 11:30) mikejm4 mikejm4's gravatar image

You have produced a counter argument against urself:

dude, it's not my arguement or opinion. my opinion is this is all silly. there is no heaven and hell. sorry bad puncuation. those are questions in the first paragraph

You see the problem is you don't believe in God if I am correct. That means there is nothing after death, there is no heavens, and I can be enjoy power and cruelty as it doesn't affect me. So who will do justice with me)?

(Jul 01 at 11:35) abdul_wasay ♦ abdul_wasay's gravatar image

In the end its only God that can determine our fate, and those who murder will answer to God as well as those who didn't believe in the right teachings. I'd rather work hard for heaven then it to be handed to me, and thats what muslims do. Even if it's written, they work harder to secure a spot but we can all think different thats the beauty of the mind!

a_w, how am i arguing against myself. i understand the reason behind the mythology. if you want to manipulate people's behavior, what is the one thing we all have in common. we will all die. so you create this wonderful place that the people who do what you want them too do go, after they die. and a place of horror for the people that don't do what you want them to. it's like santa claus on the one hand and the witches that live in the forrest on the other, for grown ups. religion is simply a massive fairytale constructed to help regulate adult behavior.

were do jinn live?

(Jul 03 at 16:34) mikejm4 mikejm4's gravatar image

MM, so why the question?

you a somali? you in minneapolis?

(Jul 03 at 16:37) mikejm4 mikejm4's gravatar image

You ask questions and I answer. Now you answer my previous question and this one.

1) Is a person with a creator more guided or without a creator more guided?

2) Since there is nothing to lose after death why not be cruel and enjoy power. And who will do justice?
