Ashara mubasshireen ten to paradise

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4632  Narrated by Sa'id ibn Zayd

Sa'id ibn Zayd said: ‘I bear witness that I heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: ‘Ten persons will go to Paradise: The Prophet (saws) will go to Paradise, Abu Bakr (r.a.a) will go to Paradise, Umar (r.a.) will go to Paradise, Uthman (r.a.a) will go to Paradise, Ali (r.a.) will go to Paradise, Talhah (r.a.) will go to Paradise: Az-Zubayr ibn al-Awwam (r.a.) will go to paradise, Saad ibn Abi Waqqas (r.a.) will go to Paradise, Abu Ubaydah ibn Jarrah (r.a.), and Abdur Rahman ibn Awf (r.a.) will go to Paradise. If you wish, I can mention the tenth.’ The people asked: ‘Who is he?’ but he kept silence. They again asked: ‘Who is he?’ He replied: ‘He is Sa'id ibn Zayd (r.a.).’”

Although the Prophet (saws) gave the glad tidings to many amongst his noble male and female companions that they will attain Paradise, ten amongst the men are specially mentioned and known as the ‘Ashara Mubasshereen’ (Ten who were given glad tidings).  They are:

  1. Abu Bakr As-Siiddiq (r.a.)
  2. Umar ibn Khattab (r.a.)
  3. Uthman ibn Affan (r.a.)
  4. Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.)
  5. Talhah ibn Ubaydullah (r.a.)
  6. Zubayr ibn Awwam (r.a.)
  7. Saad ibn Abi Waqqas (r.a.)
  8. Abu Ubaydah ibn Jarrah (r.a.)
  9. Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Awf (r.a.)
  10. Said ibn Zayd (r.a.)

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
