Question

Who is the last Prophet to enter paradise?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

We have not come across any authentic evidence from the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) which clarifies who is the last Prophet to enter paradise. As regards the narration which states that the last Prophet to enter Paradise is the Prophet Sulaymaan (Solomon), the son of Daawood (David), may Allaah exalt their mention, because of the kingdom that he had in this world, and the narration which reads: "He will enter Paradise forty years after the Prophets.", then these are not authentic narrations as stated by Al-Qurtubi may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him in his interpretation of the Quran.

Allaah Knows best.
