Those Promised Paradise

Those Promised Paradise


This unique book is the first volume in IQRA's series entitled 'Stories of the Sahabah' as adapted by Mrs. Noura Durkee. This volume contains the biographies of twenty-one intimate Sahabah who were promised their place in Paradise, as recorded in various traditions (ahadith). This series presents the lives of the Sahabah for younger generations of Muslims through rich and engaging stories. A more famous Haddith on this subject promises Paradise to ten Sahabah, popularly known as al-'Ashrah al-Mubasharin in Paradise.
There are other traditions which mention the name of other Sahabah and Sahabiyat who were promised Paradise in their life time or soon after their death. We believe that all the Sahabah of the prophet Mohammad will enter Paradise; in this volume, we have included only those chosen ones who heard the good news from the Prophet himself.

It covers the 10 Prominent Sahaba known as the Ashrah Mubashara which include

1. Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddique (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
2. Hazrat Usman Ghani (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
3. Hazrat Umar Farooq (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
4. Hazrat ALi (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
5. Hazrat Abu Talha (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
6. Hazrat Zubair Ibn Awan (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
7. Hazrat Abu Obaida Ibn Al-Jarah (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
8. Hazrat Abdur Rehman Ibh A'uf (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
9. Hazrat Sa'ad Ibh Abi Waqas (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)
10. Hazrat Saeed Ibh Zaid (Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha)

and 10 Others Including Aishah (RA), Khadijah (RA), Fatimah (RA) Bilal, Ammar Ibn Yasir, Salman al Farsi (Radialluha anhum)
