Hadith on Jannah: The Promise of Paradise Without Reckoning

📖Sahih al-Bukhari 3247 
Narrated Sahl bin Sa`d: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Verily! 70,000 or 700,000 of my followers will enter Paradise altogether; so that the first and the last amongst them will enter at the same time, and their faces will be glittering like the bright full moon.”

  • According to the narration in Sahih al-Bukhari 3247, the promise of entering Paradise together and having faces shining like the full moon was specific to a particular group of the Prophet’s followers. The exact number mentioned varies between 70,000 and 700,000 individuals. However, it’s important to note that this promise does not imply exclusion or denial of Paradise to other believers. It highlights a special distinction and honor bestowed upon this specific group. Other authentic narrations and Islamic teachings emphasize that numerous believers will enter Paradise, each with their own unique rewards and blessings. Therefore, while this particular promise is for a select group, it does not negate the overall promise of Paradise for the righteous believers.
