Confirmed entry in jannah
Glad tidings of confirmed entry in Jannah (Heaven) at the time of death – any evidence from Quran?
There is a very beautiful Ayah in the Quran that gives glad tidings of entering Jannah to the believers. The companions of the Prophet (PBUH) are the direct addressee who believed in spite of all the hardships and unfavorable circumstances. About them Allah SWT says in Surah No 41 Ayah 30
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّـهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ
Translation: “Indeed, those who have said, ‘Our Lord is Allah’ and then remained on a right course – the angels will descend upon them, [saying], ‘Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised”
This ayah very clearly says that those who declared Allah SWT as their Master and then remained steadfast, they will be given the good news of Jannah at the time of their departure from their worldly life through angels. This was a reassuring and heart warming good news not only for the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) but for those of us too who follow the footsteps of the companions, truly believe and remain steadfast in fulfilling requirements expected from a believer.
Believing at the time of the Prophet (PBUH) was a huge task and extremely hard. At that time, believers had to leave their nation, their families, their former religion and suffer all the hardships & tortures. For us today, we don’t have to do any of such things but we need to leave our prejudices and fulfill those orders which are the requirements from a believer. We need to obey God in our personal lives and call people to good, to patience and perseverance. If there’s a need of helping the deen of Allah SWT, we need to step forward. Stand up for truth and justice. Those of us who will exert in doing the above mentioned things, will find the glad tidings of entering jannah at the time of their death.
