"Whoever guarantees me (the chastity of) what is between his legs ( i.e. his private parts), and what is between his jaws ( i.e., his tongue), I guarantee him Paradise."

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Regarding following hadith:

The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Whoever guarantees me (the chastity of) what is between his legs ( i.e. his private parts), and what is between his jaws ( i.e., his tongue), I guarantee him Paradise."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.799 Narrated by Sahl bin Sad


According to above hadith, only for some of those there is guarantee. I know that "no ummah will enter jannah until ummate-Mohammad" (exact hadith do not remember). So there is an unconditional gaurantee for ultimate destination as jannah for every Muslim. If some one is following above hadith but involving in Interest business, then what will be for that.

Answer:

 

Every muslim to paradise

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 32 Surah Sajdah verse 19:

19 For those who believe and do righteous deeds are Gardens as hospitable homes for their (good) deeds.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 42 Surah Shura verse 22:

22 Thou wilt see the wrongdoers in fear on account of what they have earned and (the burden of) that must (necessarily) fall on them. But those who believe and work righteous deeds will be in the luxuriant meads of the Gardens: they shall have before their Lord all that they wish for: that will indeed be the magnificent Bounty (of Allah).

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rome verse 45:

45 That He may reward those who believe and work righteous deeds out of His Bounty: for He loves not those who reject Faith.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 31 Surah Luqmaan verses 8-9:

8 For those who believe and work righteous deeds there will be Gardens of Bliss.

9 To dwell therein. The promise of Allah is true: and He is Exalted in Power, Wise.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 47 Surah Muhammad verse 12:

12 Verily Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to Gardens beneath which rivers flow; while those who reject Allah will enjoy (this world) and eat as cattle eat; and the Fire will be their abode.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 107:

107 As to those who believe and work righteous deeds they have for their entertainment the Gardens of Paradise

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 85 Surah Buruj verse 11:

11 For those who believe and do righteous deeds will be Gardens Beneath which rivers flow: that is the Great Salvation

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 56:

56 On that Day the Dominion will be that of Allah: He will judge between them: so those who believe and work righteous deeds will be in Gardens of Delight.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Mumin verse 40:

40 He that works evil will not be requited but by the like thereof: and he that works a righteous deed whether man or woman and is a believer such will enter the Garden (of Bliss): therein will they have abundance without measure.




 

Respected brother in Islam, the Realms of Paradise is the prerogative of Allah Subhanah Alone; and the two absolutely inseparable pre-conditions the Lord Most High Most Wise has conveyed in His Message for ones entry into the Eternal Gardens of Paradise are:

  1. Belief, and
  2. Righteous good deeds in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah.

 

Your Question: regarding following hadith:
The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Whoever guarantees me (the chastity of) what is between his legs ( i.e. his private parts),
and what is between his jaws ( i.e., his tongue), I guarantee him Paradise."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.799 Narrated by Sahl bin Sad
According to above hadith, only for some of those there is guarantee.

Respected brother, although the hadith you have quoted above is considered absolutely authentic, one must realize that whenever the Messenger of Allah (saws) declared the doer of such and such a deed will go to Paradise.it is implied that the person is a believer and has (at least) fulfilled all the obligatory duties laid upon him in the Quran and the Sunnah..for belief and good deeds are the two absolute and inseparable pre-conditions for one to enter Paradise.

 

The above hadith whereby the Messenger of Allah (saws) declared that Paradise is guaranteed for one who preserves the sanctity of his tongue and his chastity is to make the believers aware of how important are these two instruments in the Sight and Scale of Allah Subanah.

 

Your Question: I know that "no ummah will enter jannah until ummate-Mohammad"

(exact hadith do not remember).

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 62:

62 Those who believe (in the Quran) and those who follow the Jewish (Scriptures) and the Christians and the Sabians and who believe in Allah and the Last Day and work righteousness shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter Surah 5 Maidah verse 69:

69 Those who believe (in the Quran) those who follow the Jewish (Scriptures) and the Sabians and the Christians; any who believe in Allah and the Last Day and work righteousness on them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 111-112:

111 And they say: "None shall enter paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian." Those are their (vain) desires! Say: "Produce your proof if ye are truthful."

112 Nay! Whoever submits his whole self to Allah and is a doer of good he will get his reward with his Lord; on such shall be no fear nor shall they grieve.

 

Respected brother, in light of the above absolutely clear guidance of the Glorious Quran, it is evident that not all of the inhabitants of Paradise will be from the Ummah or believers of Prophet Mohamed (saws)!

 

A more factual statement would be that after the advent of Prophet Mohamed (saws), no other people or ummah will enter Paradise unless those who believed and unconditionally submitted themselves to the Message brought by Prophet Mohamed (saws) and did deeds in accordance with Message.

 

For all the people or ummahs that came before the advent of the Last and Final Messenger (saws), if indeed they believed in their appointed Prophets and did good righteous deeds according to the Scriptures revealed by their Lord unto their Prophets.they shall definitely have their promised rewards from their Lord All-Just.

 

Your Question: So there is an unconditional gaurantee for ultimate destination as jannah for every Muslim.

Every person who is born of muslim parents, or every person who declares the shahaadah or testimony of faith will be regarded as a legal muslim in the Sight of Shariah Law and the believers in the life of this world.and every single right that is due to a believer will be accorded to them in full.

 

It is only on the Day of Judgment when Allah Subhanah will Decide with Absolute Knowledge, and Truth, and Justice who amongst those who declared themselves as muslims in the world are real muslims.

 

Thus brother it is not as if every person who declares himself to be a muslim in the life of this world, or names himself an Abdullah, or Mohamed, or Ayyub, or Jaafar, etc. has an unconditional guarantee to enter Paradise!

 

It is the Lord Most Majestic Most Supreme Alone, Who will Decide and Determine on the Day of Judgment who amongst those who called themselves muslims were real muslims..and it is only those fortunate believers who are declared as real muslims by the Lord Most Merciful who will find themselves in the Mercy of their Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 29 Surah Ankabut verses 10-11:

10 Then there are among men such as say "We believe in Allah"; but when they suffer affliction in (the Cause of) Allah they treat men's oppression as if it were the Wrath of Allah! And if help comes (to thee) from thy Lord they are sure to say "We have (always) been with you!" Does not Allah know best all that is in the hearts of all creation?

11 And Allah most certainly knows those who believe, and as certainly those who are hypocrites!

 

Hadith Qudsi 6

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: The first of people against whom judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died a martyr (in the Cause of Allah). He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favors and he will recognize them. Allah, The Exalted, will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I fought for You until I died a martyr (in Your Cause). Allah Subhanah will Say: You have lied - you did but fight that it might be said [of you]: He is courageous. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire. [Another] will be a man who has studied [religious] knowledge and has taught it and who used to recite the Quran. He will be brought and Allah will make known to his His favors and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will Say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I studied [religious] knowledge and I taught it and I recited the Quran for Your sake. Allah Subhanah will Say: You have lied - you did but study [religious] knowledge that it might be said [of you]: He is learned. And you recited the Quran that it might be said [of you]: He is a recitor. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire. [Another] will be a man whom Allah had made rich and to whom He had given all kinds of wealth. He will be brought and Allah will make known to his His favors and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will Say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I left no path [untrodden] in which You like money to be spent without spending in it for Your sake. Allah Subhanah will say: You have lied - you did but do so that it might be said [of you]: He is open-handed. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.

 

Sahih Muslim Hadith 6251 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said: Do you know who is a muflis (abjectly poor or one who is totally bankrupt)? They (the Companions (r.a.) of the Prophet (saws)) said: A muflis amongst us is one who has neither dirham with him nor wealth. He (the Prophet (saws)) said: The muflis of my Ummah would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection with prayers and fasts and Zakah but (he would find himself bankrupt on that day as he would have exhausted his funds of virtues) since he hurled abuses upon others, brought calumny against others, unlawfully consumed the wealth of others, shed the blood of others, and beat others. His virtues would be credited to the account of one (who suffered at his hand). And if his good deeds fall short to clear the account (of his mis-deeds), then their sins would be entered in (his account) and he would be thrown in the Hell-Fire!

 

Respected brother, in light of the above absolutely clear guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws) it is evident that not every one who considered himself to be a muslim in the life of this world will enter Paradise..but rather only those whom The Lord Most Gracious Determines to be true muslims on that Inevitable and Tumultuous Day of Judgment will be shown the Mercy of their Lord Most Merciful.

 

Your Question: If some one is following above hadith but involving in Interest business, then what will be for that.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiyaa verse 47:

47 We shall set up Scales of Justice for the Day of Judgment so that not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least. And if there be (no more than) the weight of a mustard seed (good or evil), We will bring it (to account): and enough are We to take account.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 160:

160 He that doeth good shall have ten times as much to his credit: he that doeth evil shall only be recompensed according to his evil. No wrong shall be done unto (any of) them.

 

In light of the above quoted absolutely clear guidance of the Glorious Quran, Allah Subhanah will set up the Scales of Justice on the Day of Judgment and the deed (good and evil) of each person will be assigned a specific weight by Allah Subhanah.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 101 Surah Al-Qariah verses 6-11:

6 Then he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) heavy

7 Will be in a life of good pleasure and satisfaction.

8 But he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) light

9 Will have his home in a (bottomless) pit.

10 And what will explain to thee what this is?

11 (It is) a Fire, Blazing fiercely!

 

Thus if there is one who preserved his chastity and the sanctity of his tongue, but indulged himself in the unlawful (like riba, or alcohol, or gambling, or zina, etc.)..the Lord Most Just Will place the weights assigned to each of his good and his evil deeds on the Scales of Justice. If the weight of the good deeds of the believer are found heavier, he will be taken into the Mercy of the Lord Most Merciful; and if the weight of evil deeds are found heavier, he will face the Wrath and Anger of the Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme.

 

In our humble opinion brother, the sooner one who claims himself to be a muslim gets out of his security zone which he has built for himself and assumes that just because he has chosen to call himself a muslim, he is guaranteed Paradise in the Hereafterthe better! Paradise is guaranteed only for those fortunate beings whom the Lord All-Knowing Declares and Determines to be a real muslim in the Hereafter.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
