Now updated: Islam.com Ramadan calendar - islam.com/salat

so I want to know will salatul ishraq and umrah in Ramadan also guarantees paradise or heaven? Al-Bukhari (1782) and Muslim (1256) narrated that Ibn Abbaas said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said to a woman from among the Ansaar – Ibn Abbaas mentioned her name but I forgot it – “What kept you from performing Hajj with us?” She said: We only have two camels and the father of her son and her son had gone for Hajj on one camel, and he left us the other camel so that we could carry water on it. He said: “When Ramadan comes, go for Umrah, for Umrah in (that month) is equivalent to Hajj.”

Saaiduna Anas Bin Malik Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said “Whosoever offers his fajr prayer in congregation, then remains seated making zikr of Allah until the sun rises and thereafter offers two rakats, they will receive the reward of performing a Hajj and Umrah”. (Sunan Tirmizi) salatul ishraq I don't think they will replace the duty of fard hajj but I want do they guarantee heaven like hajj does.

Al Salam Alaikom brother Faisal, and May Allah bless you for this interesting question. Your question runs on several parallel parts and please allow me to deal with them one at a time:

You said: so I want to know will salatul ishraq and umrah in Ramadan also guarantees paradise or heaven?

These acts, and others and they are many in Islam, all from Allah Mercy on us, are keys to entering paradise. No one Muslim would enter paradise unless by the Mercy of Allah, and no Muslim knows for sure if he would enter Paradise directly. Muslims are guaranteed Paradise In Sha Allah, but we know some might have to go to Hell first to pay for their wrong doings, according to Allah Judgement. So to conclude, no one act of Islam GUARANTEES Heaven, but Allah guarantees it for His abiding servants and instructed us to give all our effort towards this, so that we gain His Mercy on us and with that go to Heaven In Sha Allah.

The You said: I don't think they will replace the duty of fard hajj but I want do they guarantee heaven like hajj does.

No act replaces another unless explicitly stated by the Quran or Authentic Hadith; these acts, as well as one I specifically mentioned for you here: http://islam.com/questions/35237/salaat-al-tasaabeeh-its-authenticity-excellent-rewards-in-sha-allah - are all to make us come closer to Allah Almighty, they are because different people with different circumstance might want to get the rewards of some act like Hajj, but they cannot attain Hajj itself. Say like in Egypt currently where on average it costs 5000-10000$ USD to perform one, and might not be allowed even then due to limited numbers accepted from each country. Allah The Most Merciful gave us many things to gain His Acceptance, and those mentioned are one of them.

I hope this answers and make it clearer, and I welcome any clarifications; Allah bless you and all the Muslims.
