Those Promised Paradise - Stories Of The Sahabah - Volume 1 By Noura Durkee
'Those Promised Paradise' is the first volume in IQRA's series entitled “Stories of the Sahabah” as adapted by Noura Durkee. This volume contains the biographies of twenty-one intimate Sahabah who were promised their place in Paradise, as recorded in various traditions (ahadith). This series presents the lives of the Sahabah for younger generations of Muslims through rich and engaging stories.
A more famous Haddith on this subject promises Paradise to ten Sahabah, popularly known as al-'Ashrah al-Mubasharin in Paradise. There are other traditions which mention the name of other Sahabah and Sahabiyat who were promised Paradise in their life time or soon after their death. We believe that all the Sahabah of the prophet Mohammad will enter Paradise; in this volume, we have included only those chosen ones who heard the good news from the Prophet himself.
