Does Islam give a guarantee for Heaven?

A common question asked by Christians to Muslims is:

We have a guarantee for Heaven as Jesus has taken our sins away on the cross so that no one who believes in him shall perish, does Islam give a guarantee for Heaven?

God Promises Heaven to Believers

Simple answer is what the Holy Quran says:

Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds [that] for them there is forgiveness and great reward. (Holy Quran 5:9)

It is narrated on the authority of Mu’adh b. Jabal that he observed:

I was riding behind the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) on an ass known as ‘Ufair. He (Mu’adh) observed: He (the Holy Prophet) said: Mu’adh, do you know what right has Allah over His bondsmen and what right have His bondsmen over Him? Mu’adh added: I replied: Allah and his Messenger know best. Upon this he (the Prophet remarked: The right of Allah over His bondsmen is that they should worship Allah and should not associate anything with Him, and the right of His bondsmen over Allah, is that He does not punish him who associates not anything with Him. He (Mu’adh) added: I said to the Messenger of Allah: Should I then give the tidings to the people? He (the Holy Prophet) said: Do not tell them this good news, for they would trust in it alone.

Is there a guarantee to enter Heaven in Islam?

What Muslims Cannot Guarantee

Is that a guarantee? It may be a guarantee that the one who has the right faith and his faith is compiled into good deeds is promised by Heaven, but how can one guarantee that he shall die on the right faith? How can he guarantee that he is intending by his good deeds only Allah not anyone or anything else so that Allah accepts it? That’s actually what Allah shows in the Quran in the story of Abel and Cain:

And recite to them the story of Adam’s two sons, in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice [to Allah ], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], “I will surely kill you.” Said [the former], “Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him]. (Holy Quran 5:27)

If we have a guarantee that we shall enter Heaven, what is the need to work and do good deeds? We can steal, kill, fornicate, do anything we like as long as we guarantee that our faith shall let us go to Heaven. Christians will say, this is not the meaning definitely, as salvation should keep people away from sins. If this is the case, then where is the guarantee they actually have?

  1. The Holy Bible says that good deeds or works without Faith are death and Faith without the works are death. We sinfull and imperfect, ‘born in sinn’ people dont deserve enter Gods Kingdom . We lack faith , holyness . We are born into sinn ever sinds adam and heva. Death came into this world. And we are destend to live a eternal life of suffering and pain . God gave us free will. What honour is there to gain if we would be as robots right?!. Because sinn came between God and us, we cannot enter Gods holyness or have contact without we fall death. Cause Gods holyness is like an allconsuming fire. We cannot even imagine how holy God is and how we deserve death because we sinn against His holiness. Thereforde bloodoffer had to be made.
    He tested Abraham/Ibrahims faith by
    asking to offer his son Isaak. And
    because he was obedient to God God
    made Him a promiss to bless him
    with a promiss that his generations will be numbered like the stars and the world will be blessed trough his seed after him. God gave the jews the signment to keep and preserve His Word for the world. And God kept His promis . Never ask yourself why you celebrate ad-al-adha ? Where it referes to?
    cause God loves the wod so much that He gave His only son sothat whoever believes in Him will not perish in hell but have everlasting life. Yeshua was there before the creation of the world, He is the Word, and by His Word everything is made. And the Word became flesh, came down to earth to do obey the will of God our Father wich are in heaven. To concure death and hell, suffered for us, died for us, burried our sin with Him, and arose from the death, delivers us from evil, washed our sinns away with His precious, perfect sinnless, Godly blood.now sitting on the righthand of God from where he will come to judge over the living and the death. And the rightious will go with Him, the dead will rise to either be with Him forever or to be sentenced to hell because we refused His cleansing offer. He gave Himself for us, took everything upon Him, took our deserved punishment upon Him, satan lost. Satan wanted to be like God and still wants it but he lost and will be judged to. Jesus Jeschua , yasooa al massihi is the Lamb of God and presents or refers to THAT Lamb that Ibrahim got to replace Izaak from the
    alter. It refers to ad -al-adh . U know
    that jews still offer a lamb to take over there sinns to become clean with God…while they cut the lamb the hand of the person who offers is on the head of the lamb so his or her sinns go upon the lamb. And the person can go to God freely in prayer etcetera.
    God choose to reach out to us Therefore God sended His Son down to earth, He finished His work on earth wherefore He was sended:He became one of us , took our place, saved our life from everlasting hell so that finally we will be with God and there wil be a new heaveen and a new earth, and God will be with us, all tears will be whiped away , no more pain or desease or death. Lamb will be with the lion, a baby next to a snake..etcetera and God will be all in all. Thats Gods promiss for all who believe in Him. this counts for all people including u, me , mohammed ibrahim etcetera. God is Love with a capital L. God bless u, ma yassooa alMassiHi come into your heart and give u peace beyond all understanding . I pray for u. Salaam aleekom . God bless u.
