8 Doors Of Jannah | Jannah is the final destination in the afterlife for good and faithful Muslims. Jannah is our true home, not this Dunya. This life is a test to see who is best in deeds. Jannah is the ultimate reward for those who do good in this life. Jannah is full of things the eye has never seen and things the mind has never comprehended.
The entry of Muslims through these gates is upon many factors, most important of which is the fear of Allah Almighty and complete submission to His commands:
“But those who feared their Lord will be driven to Paradise in groups until, when they reach it while its gates have been opened and its keepers say, ‘Peace be upon you; you have become pure; so enter it to abide eternally therein,’ [they will enter].”
(Surah Al-Zumar 39:73)
The details of the 8 Doors of Jannah are as follows:
1. Baab As-Salaat
This gate will allow those people to enter Paradise who were punctual and attentive in their prayers. Allah promised great rewards for those who prayed with sincerity and faith and this gate will be the fulfillment of this promise:
“Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and give zakah will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve” (Quran 2:277).
2. Baab Al-Jihad
“Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors” (Quran 2:193).
Those Muslims who sacrificed their lives in the way of Islam through Jihad will enter Heaven from this gate.

This gate allows only those believers to enter who were charitable and gave Sadaqah in the way of Allah.
4. Baab Ar-Rayyaan

Sahl (RA) reported that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:
“In Paradise there is a gate called Al-Rayyaan, through which those who used to fast will enter on the Day of Resurrection, and no one but they will enter it. It will be said, ‘Where are those who fasted?’ They will get up, and none will enter it but them. When they have entered, it will be locked, and no one else will enter” (Bukhari 1763).
5. Baab Al-Hajj
Entry through this gate is reserved for those who observe the Hajj Pilgrimage.

Narrated Mu’adh bin Jabal :
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) as saying: If anyone’s last words are “There is no god but Allah” he will enter Paradise.
(Sunan Abi Dawud)
“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
‘Whoever performs Wudu’ and does it well, then says:
“Ashhadu an la ilaha ill-Allah was ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasuluh
(I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is his slave and Messenger),”
eight gates of Paradise will be opened for him, and he may enter through whichever one he wishes.'”
