The Paradise is for who? By Dr. Majid Al Kindi

Title: PARADISE IS FOR WHO?


“That is Paradise, which We give as inheritance to those of Our servants who were fearing (of Allah).” (Qur’an 19:63)

And not for the one who was an ibadi, nor a hanafi, nor a shafi’, nor a maliki and not for other than them from every group, whether it being from a school of theology or a school of jurisprudence, (but) for the one who was Allah fearing (Allah conscious).

That which we have affection for and desire, is that people leave all of these labels and commit to that which Allah the Almighty has labelled us when He said,

“And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you “Muslims” before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to Allah . He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper.” (Qur’an 22:78)

This is what we want.

And the Imam (May Allah have mercy on him) when he was asked about the school (ie al-Ibadiyyah) and it’s naming, he (May Allah have mercy on him) replied by saying, “We don’t have any school except Islam.”

So, we don’t take the individual’s understanding as Islam or the individual’s understanding as the Shariah of Allah. It is instead ideas that people have come with and call to.

This is the translation from the above video by Dr. Majid Al Kindi. The general custodian of the Iftaa office in Oman. A very knowledgeable scholar with 2 doctorates.
