Hadith on Prophet: The Role of Sunnah in Attaining Paradise

📖Sahih al-Bukhari 7280
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “All my followers will enter Paradise except those who refuse.” They said, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! Who will refuse?” He said, “Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise, and whoever disobeys me is the one who refuses (to enter it).”

  • This hadith in Sahih al-Bukhari states that all of the Prophet Muhammad’s followers will enter Paradise except those who refuse to do so. The refusal to enter Paradise is seen as a consequence of disobeying the guidance of the Prophet Muhammad, which includes following both the Sunnah and Quran (the example of the Prophet). In simpler terms, the hadith teaches that obedience to the Prophet Muhammad’s teachings and example is essential for Muslims to attain Paradise.
