Hadith Explanation

Entrance Ticket for Ar-Rayyan

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “There is a gate to Paradise that is called Ar-Rayyan. On the Day of Resurrection it will say, ‘Where are those who fasted?’ When the last (one) has passed through the gate, it will be locked.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Just as there are tickets to enter carnivals, concerts, and movie theatres, Paradise also has a price. The difference is that carnivals, concerts and movie theatres are places where Shaitaan and his corrupt followers are found: while Paradise is a purely good place. Nothing bad can happen to anyone in Paradise. Nobody can get pick-pocketed, molested, drugged or abused in any way. It is pure fun with no evil consequences.

One way to get in this beautiful Paradise is by fasting. One of the eight gates of Paradise accepts fasts as the entrance ticket. Let’s make sure we can at least enter through this gate called Ar-Rayyan.
