Hadith Explanation

Denying Yourself Entrance

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Everyone of my Ummah will enter Jannah except those who refuse.” He was asked: “Who will refuse?” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Whoever obeys me shall enter Jannah, and whosoever disobeys me refuses to (enter Jannah).” [Sahih Bukhari]

Suppose a restaurant you wish to go to has a dress code. You have the appropriate clothes but don’t wish to wear them. Then whose fault is it if you are denied entry? By refusing to wear the proper dress you refused to enter the restaurant yourself.

Jannah has the best country-clubs, the finest restaurants, the poshest hotels and they’re yours for keeps. The only requirement for everlasting, irrevocable, membership is obedience of Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam). He described Jannah to us and also illustrated the path to it. It’s our choice whether we wish to enter it or refuse to.
