Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) carrying out four deeds that guarantees entry into Jannah

Question

Please provide the full narration where Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked who did four good deeds and Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) had done all four. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said who ever does these actions will enter Jannah.

 

Answer

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) once said:

“Who among you is fasting today?’ Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replied, ‘I am.’ He asked, ‘Who among you followed a Janazah today?’ Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said, ‘I did.’ He asked, ‘Who among you has fed a needy person today?’ Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said, ‘I did.’ He asked, ‘Who among you visited a sick person today?’ Abu Bakr replied, ‘I did.’ Upon this, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘None carries out all these [good deeds] except that he will enter Jannah.'”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1028)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
