Gates of Paradise Doors
The highly fortunate among st us are those who would be going to attain Jannah (paradise) doors. On the brink, every religion exuviates a bit of light on the promise of paradise but none of the books describes Jannah better than the holy Quran.
As said in Bukhari Sharif that: “In Paradise are things a peeper has never seen, an ear has never heard, and a mind can’t imagine”. In Islamic practices, it is acknowledged that Heaven has eight doors to enter and these doors can only be reachable by certain people with exceptional characteristics.
Hazrat Ubadah RA narrated that Holy Prophet PBUH once said:
“If anyone swear that none has the right to be worshiped but Allah Alone Who has no partners, and that Muhammad (PBUH) is his slave and His proponent, and that Jesus is Allah’s Slave and His Apostle and His Word which He conferred on Mary and a spirit created by Him, and that Jannah is true, and Hell is true, Allah will concede him into Paradise using any of its eight gates He prefers.”
