The Weak and Destitute Will Form the Majority in Paradise

 

Most of those who will enter Paradise will be the weak and destitute, whom people tend to ignore and care little about, but in the sight of Allaah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) they are important, becuse they fear Him and worship Him faithfully and with humility.

 

Al-Bukhaari and Muslim report from Hareethah ibn Wahb that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said:

“Shall I not tell you about the people of Paradise? They said, “Of course”. He said,

 

“Every weak and oppressed person; if he were to implore Allaah for anything, He would grant it to him.”

[Jaami’ al-Usool, 10/535]

 

 
An-Nawawi said, commenting on this hadith:

“It refers to those who others despise, scorn and oppress because of their weak position in this world.

 

What is meant is that most of the people of Paradise will be of this type, but it does not meant that all of them will be“.

[Sharh an-Nawawi alaa Muslim, 17/187]

 
Al-Bukhaari, Ahmad and Muslim reported from Usaamah ibn Zayd that the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:

“I stood at the gate of Paradise and saw that most of those who entered were the poor and destitute. The people of means were held back, whilst the people of Hell had been ordered into the Fire.

 

I stood by the gate of Hell, and saw that most of those who entered it were women”.

[Mishkaat al-Masaabih, 2/663 no 5233]
