Parents of prophet(saws) in 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.
Time and time again, Allah Subhanah has made it extremely clear in His Glorious Quran that the determination of whether one receives His Mercy or His Punishment will not depend on ones lineage or blood-relations; but rather it will depend entirely upon the state of ones belief and the good righteous deeds done by that individual.
Allah Subhanah reveals in His Glorious Quran that some of the closest relatives of the Prophets of Allah will be condemned to the Eternal and Everlasting tortures of Hell Fire. The most prominent amongst them are:
- Azar, the father of Prophet Ibraheem (a.s.), the choicest friend and the Khaleel of Allah Subhanah.
- The wife of Prophet Nuh (a.s.).
- The son of Prophet Nuh (a.s.).
- The wife of Prophet Lut (a.s.).
- Abu Lahab, the paternal uncle of the Prophet Mohamed (saws), and also the wife of Abu Lahab.
Being a parent or a close blood-relative of a Prophet of Allah by itself will not entitle one to enter Paradise; but what will determine ones entry into Paradise or Hell Fire is ones belief in the Absolute Oneness of Allah Subhanah and the doing of good righteous deeds, and above all the Mercy and Grace of the Lord Most Merciful.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) himself made it very clear to his own family that he (saws) could not save them if they were to disobey Allah Subhanah!
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.294 Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah's Messenger (saws) got up when the Verse of the Quran (26:214): "And warn your tribe of near kindred..." was revealed and he (saws) said, "O Quraish people! Buy yourselves! I cannot save you from Allah (if you disobey Him)! O Bani Abdu Manaf! I cannot save you from Allah (if you disobey Him)! O 'Abbas (r.a.) (the paternal uncle of the Prophet (saws))! The son of 'Abdul Muttalib! I cannot save you from Allah (if you disobey Him)! O Safiyah (r.a.), (the paternal aunt of Allah's Messenger (saws))! I cannot save you from Allah (if you disobey Him)! O Fatimah (r.a.), the daughter of Muhammad (saws)! Ask what you wish from my property, but I cannot save you from Allah (if you disobey Him)!"
Your Statement: Do not translate hadith the wrong way. Both of rasullahs parents are in Jannah
Sahih Muslim Hadith 398 Narrated by Anas ibn Malik
A companion whose father had died in the Days of Ignorance came and asked the Prophet (saws): O Messenger of Allah (saws), where is my father? The Prophet (saws) replied: He (you father) is in the Hell Fire. When the companion turned away, he (the Prophet (saws)) called him back and said: Verily my father and your father are both in the Hell Fire!
Abu Hurairah reported: "The Prophet (saws) visited his mother's grave and wept, and everyone there wept with him (saws). Then the Prophet (saws) said: 'I sought my Lord's permission to seek forgiveness for her, but He did not permit me. I then sought permission to visit her grave and He permitted me to visit her grave.
Related by Muslim, Ahmad, and Abu Dawud.
In light of the above authentic traditions of the Messenger of Allah (saws), it is evident that the parents of the Prophet (saws) did not die on the religion of Prophet Ibraheem (a.s.) nor on the belief of monotheism. So much so, that Allah Subhanah did not even allow Prophet Mohamed (saws) to even supplicate Him for the forgiveness of his own mother!!!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 113:
113 It is not fitting for the Prophet and those who believe that they should pray for forgiveness for pagans, even though they be of kin, after it is clear to them that they are companions of the Fire.
My dear and respected brother in Islam, For everything that transpires or will transpire in the life of the unseen, we as believers who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day are duty bound to trust and accept only what is related by Allah and His Messenger (saws). My dear and respected brother in Islam,if you have reason to believe that the parents of the Last and Final Messenger of Allah (saws) are not in Hell Fire as related by the Prophet (saws) himself, but rather in Paradise.in all humility and in sincerity we beseech you to provide us with your proof and your evidence from either the Glorious Quran or the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws)!
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,
