Doubts regarding a Hadith

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have a question. There is a hadith that a sinful woman got Jannah because she quenched a dog’s thirst. Now my question is today, so many kafir people are donating money and we heard about the hardwork of Florance nightingale and Mother Teresa. What about them? We didn’t hear that she used to worship Allah or repent. So what is the objective of this hadith? Even if someone is kafir or dont pray would they have hope to get Jannah?


A: Don’t take Allah Ta`ala’s position. Let Him do His work and you do your work. Don’t become judgemental in what you do not have jurisdiction over. Abu Jahal had done a lot of charitable work as well as Abu Lahab.

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