Asharah Mubash Sharah-The Ten Promised Paradise

Asharah Mubash Sharah-The Ten Promised Paradise

Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Akhnas said that when he was in the mosque, a man abused Ali (RA). So Saeed bin Zayd got up and said: “I bear witness to the Apostle of Allah (SAWS) that I heard him say: “Ten persons will go to Paradise: Abu Bakr will go to Paradise, Umar will go to Paradise, Uthman will go to Paradise, Ali will go to Paradise, Talha will go to Paradise: Zubair bin Al-Awwam will go to Paradise, Sa’d bin Abi Waqqas will go to Paradise and Abdur-Rahman bin Awf will go to Paradise. If I wish, I can mention the tenth.” The People asked: “Who is he?” so he kept silence. They again asked: “Who is he?” He replied: “He is Saeed ibn Zayd.” He then said: “The Company of one man whose face has been covered with dust by the Apostle of Allah (SAWS) is better than the actions of one of you for a whole life time even if he is granted the life-span of Noah.” (Abu Dawud)
