Three Easy Ways to Enter Paradise

Abu Saeed Al Khudri (r.a.) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) said: "A person who eats only from what is lawful, and acts according to my Sunnah, and from whose harm others are safe, shall enter Paradise." One man said: "O Messenger of Allah! This applies to many people." The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) replied: "Yes, and this shall be so even in the coming generations." (Tirmidhi)

A Strong Believer

Abu Hurairah (r.a.) narrates that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) said:

“A believer who is strong is better and more beloved to Allah than the one who is weak, although both bear goodness. Aspire for what benefits you, and seek help from Allah; and do not give up. And if any adversity befalls you, do not say if I had done this or that, it would have resulted in such and such. But say, Allah so destined and did it as He desired. For verily (the word) "if" opens the way for the work of Shaitan.”   (Muslim)
