Hadith about those who enter Jannah
20-10-2002 | IslamWeb
A friend asks me if there is any Hadith where the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: "None can enter Jannah without the Mercy of Allah 'not even the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)" .
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
As for the Hadith that states no one will enter Paradise without the Mercy of Allah, it is proved in a sound Hadith recorded by Ahmad , al-Bukhari , Muslim and other from Abu Hurairah (Radiya Allahu Anhu) that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: "None of you can enter Paradise by his own good deed'. His companions said: 'O Allah's Messenger! Even you?' He (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: 'Yes, even I, unless Allah encompasses me with His Grace and Mercy' and he put his hand on his head" . This is the narration of Ahmad .
al-Bukhari added "You have to do your best to follow what is right and best, and never wish death for anyone. A righteous person may do more good deeds and if he is not righteous may seek pardon (by all means)" .
Allah knows best.
