The criteria for success

Q: I know a person on whose left hand is written “Allah” in Arabic. His veins depict it. What does that mean? Will this guy go to paradise, maybe to Firdaus Al’Ala for sure?


A: The criteria for one being successful in the sight of Allah is the strict adherence and emulation of the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

إِنَّ الدّينَ عِندَ اللَّـهِ الإِسلـمُ وَمَا اختَلَفَ الَّذينَ أوتُوا الكِتـبَ إِلّا مِن بَعدِ ما جاءَهُمُ العِلمُ بَغيًا بَينَهُم وَمَن يَكفُر بِـٔايـتِ اللَّـهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّـهَ سَريعُ الحِسابِ ﴿آل عمران: ١٩﴾
