If a Muslim dies in Ramadhan, will he enter Jannah immediately?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

As salaams Alaikum
Can you tell me if a person dies in the month of Ramadhaan he goes straight to Jannah?

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

The month of Ramadhan is indeed a blessed month and one which is filled with Allah’s mercy. So dying in the month is dying in a blessed time especially if one dies while fasting. However, this does not mean that one who dies in Ramadhan will go straight to Jannah. A person’s Iman and good actions, along with Allah’s forgiveness and mercy to that person must all be considered before one gains entry to Jannah.

And Allah Knows Best.
