  • Why Prophet Muhammad Sws Doubted It When All The Prophets Are Guaranteed Jannah?

    Aisha reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Follow the right course, be devoted, and give glad tidings. Verily, none of you will enter Paradise by his deeds alone.” They said, “Not even you, O Messenger of Allah?” The Prophet said, “Not even me, unless Allah grants me His mercy. Know that the most beloved deed to Allah is that which is done regularly, even if it is small.”

    According to this hadith the Prophet (PBUH) doesn’t know if he’s going to jannah. But I’ve always thought that all prophets were guaranteed paradise? Or am I mistaken? can someone give a source please and can someone explain this?

    This is a principle statement that no one actually can fulfill the criteria to enter the paradise, as it is the abode of eternal blessings and we cannot do eternal good to earn it, nor can we abstain completely from mistakes and sins. The prophets on the other hand had been assured by God that they did earn the favour of God.

    Having said that, God will judge us according to our capacity, that is why the criterion is lowered and this is justice.
