Let’s build house in Paradise with Little Acts

by | Jan 26, 2011

 Everybody wants a house in Paradise. In Jannah, there are things that no eyes have ever seen nor ears have ever heard, and things in it are beyond our imagination and comprehension. Allah says:

وَمَنْ أَرَادَ ٱلْءَاخِرَةَ وَسَعَىٰ لَهَا سَعْيَهَا وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ كَانَ سَعْيُهُم مَّشْكُورًا

“And whoever desires the Hereafter and strives for it as he ought to strive, and he is a believer; (as for) these, their striving shall surely be accepted.” 

[AlQuran 17:19]

Prophet (PBUH) has taught us some simple acts which are easy to follow and help us in building houses for ourselves in Paradise. Let’s follow these easy steps and build 12 houses for ourselves in Paradise.

  • Dhikr  to Get House in Paradise

Narrated Mua’z bin Anas (RA):

“Whoever recites ‘Qul Huwa Allahu Ahad’ and completes it ten times, then Allah will build a palace for him in Paradise.” 

[as-Silsilah as-Sahihah, No. 589]

“Whoever enters the marketplace and says this Dua: 

لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ حَىٌّ لاَ يَمُوتُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ كُلُّهُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ 

[La ilaha ill-Allah, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-Mulk, wa lahul-Hamd, yuhyiyy wa yumit, wa Huwa Hayyun la yamut, bi Yadihil-Khayr wa Huwa ‘ala kulli shay in Qadir] .

‘There is none worthy of worship except Allah who has no partners, for Him is the Dominion, and for Him is all Praise, He brings life, and He causes death, and He is Alive and does not die, in His Hand is all good, and He can do all things.

Then Allah will write one million good deeds for him, wipe away one million of his evil deeds, raise him one million levels and build a home for him in Paradise.” 

[Sahih al-Jami #6231]

  • Offer Sunnat Rakaat

As reported by Umm Habibah (RA), Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said:

“A house will be built in Heaven for one who prays 12 Sunnat Rak’aat in a day and evening as follows:

4 Rak’aat before and 2 after the Dhuhr Prayer, 2 after the Maghrib Prayer, 2 after the ‘Ishaa’ Prayer, and 2 before the Fajr Prayer.” 

[Narrated by at-Tirmizi]

  • Build a Mosque

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

“Whoever builds a Masjid (mosque) for Allah, Allah will build for him likewise in Paradise.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim]

  • Leave off Arguing

Narrated by Abu Umamah Radi Allahu’ Anhu, the Prophet (PBUH) said:

“I am a guarantor for a house on the outskirts of Paradise for whosoever leaves off arguing, even if he is in the right; and a house in the center of Paradise for whosoever abandons falsehood, even when joking; and a house in the upper-most part of Paradise for whosoever makes his character good.” 

[Related by Abu Dawud (no.4800)]

  • Offer Ishraq Nawafil

Narrated by Abu Musa (RA), the Prophet (PBUH) said:

“Whoever prays the four Rakat of Ishraq (sunrise Prayer) and four Rakat before the Zuhar Salat, A house is built for Him in Paradise” 
[As-Silsilah as-Sahihah]

  • Death of Someone’s child

Abu Musa Ash’ari (RA) relates that Allah asks the angels on the death of Someone’s child:

‘Have you taken the soul of my servant’s child?’ The angels say: ‘Yes.’ Then Allah asks again: ‘Did you take the soul of my servant’s darling child?’ Angels say: ‘Yes.’ Allah asks again: “What did my servant say?” The angels say he glorified Your name and said: 

إِنَّا لِلَّٰهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ

“Inna Lillahi wa Inna ilaihi Ra’ji’oon.” 

Indeed we belong to Allah, and to him, we shall return.

Allah commands that a house for many of my servants be built in Paradise and be named “Bait-ul-Hamd” – the house of thanks. [Tirmizi]

  • Perform Perfect Ablution 

“If one completes (and perfects) the ablution and then says, ‘I testify that there is no god except Allah, the One Who has no partner and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger,” the eight gates of Paradise will be opened for him, and he may enter any of them that he wishes.” [Muslim]

  • Guarantee of Tongue and Private Parts

Narrated by Sahl bin Sad (RA), the Prophet (PBUH) said:

“Whoever can guarantee (the chastity of) what is between his two jaw-bones and what is between his two legs (i.e., his tongue and his private parts), I guarantee Paradise for him.” [Bukhari]

Abu Hurairah (RA) reported that Allaah’s Messenger (PBUH) said:

“If a woman prays her five (daily) prayers and keeps her private parts chaste and obeys her husband, she will enter Paradise from any of the doors of Paradise she wishes.” 

[Reported by Ibn Hibbaan]
