The First Person of this Ummah to Enter Jannah

In the Mubaarak Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) explained that his ummah will enter Jannah before all the other ummats, and from his entire ummah, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) will be the first person after him to enter Jannah.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) appeared before me, took me by my hand and showed me the door of Jannah through which my ummah will enter.”

Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) responded, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! How I wish I was with you (when Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) showed you the door of Jannah) so that I could also see it!”

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “As for you, O Abu Bakr, then you will be the first person of my ummah to enter Jannah.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4653)
