Heaven was created by Allah for those who always do good deeds. Although everyone really wants it, but not everyone can get into it.
Muslims have many ways to get to heaven. Because heaven itself already has criteria for people who will settle in it. Therefore, it all depends on what criteria each person wants to enter.
In addition, heaven also has special criteria for the 3 groups that will enter heaven first. As the words of the Prophet in HR. Tirmidhi.
Imam at-Tirmidhi, narrated with the hasan chain, from Abu Hurairah, from the Messenger of Allah, he said:
عرض على أول ثلاثة يدخلون الجنة شهيد وعفيف متعفف وعب
أحسن عبادة الله ونصح مواليه
Meaning: I was shown the first three people to enter Paradise: Those who were martyred, those who were pure and guarded their honor, and slaves who worshiped Allah well and were kind to their masters.
Based on the hadith above, there are three groups of people who will enter heaven for the first time, including:
1. People who die on the battlefield defend religion
This person is also known as a martyr or a martyr, that is, a Muslim who died while fighting and fighting in the way of Allah to defend the truth. Or defend the right with patience and sincerity to uphold the religion of Allah.
This is clearly stated by the Prophet in the following hadith:
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم للشهيد عند الله ست خصال يغفر له في أول دفعة ويرى مقعده من الجنة ويجار من عذاب القبر ويأمن من الفزع الأكبر ويوضع على رأسه تاج الوقار الياقوتة منها خير من الدنيا وما فيها ويزوج اثنتين وسبعين زوجة من الحور العين ويشفع في ارِبِهِ (رواه الترمذي ابن اجه)
Meaning: “The Messenger of Allah said: Those who are martyred in the sight of Allah have six virtues; his sins will be forgiven from the beginning of his death, shown his seat in heaven, protected from the torment of the grave, given security from the great fear when he is raised from the grave, given a crown of glory whose one jewel is better than the world in which it is in, married to seventy-two nymphs and given the right to intercede for seventy people from his family.” (Narrated by At-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)
2. People who don’t beg even if they are poor
This is because they can refrain from the inability of the economy and intelligence to meet their needs. Poor people who do not beg are among the people who enter Paradise for the first time.
The words of the Prophet in the hadith narrated by Muslim: There are three kinds of inhabitants of heaven (namely); a ruler who acts Ajustly, honestly and is endowed with taufik, namely Allah’s help to carry out His commands and stay away from His prohibitions, a merciful and gentle person to his relatives and fellow Muslims and a needy person who refrains from begging, although he has a large family (to support).
3. Servant / slave who is always obedient to worship
The third group is a slave who worships as well as possible filled with obedience to Allah SWT. However, they remain without forgetting their rights and obligations to their master.
