We have been created to be of the people of Paradise, so why we are on earth?
In our attempt to understand this, let’s assume that
Allah enters us all in Jannah, then where will our place
be therein? As Jannah has all different levels and
degrees. And each level is different to the other
according to its owner, then how will it be determined
who is where In Jannah?
This, it was necessary to test the people on themselves and on others , hence Allah created life and death and the creation of the heavens and the earth and the creation of grades to choose our level in Paradise. Allah says in the Quran ‘They say: Praise be to Allah, Who hath fulfilled His promise unto us and hath made us inherit the land, sojourning in the Garden where we will! So bounteous is the wage of workers.’ (Zumur 74)
Yes, all of us is to choose to take his place and degree and Blessing in Paradise, and the greatest of degrees; as the Prophet (peace be upon him) taught us: ‘Indeed in paradise there are a hundred degrees, Allah has prepared them for the in the path of Allah. between each level is as between the heaven and earth’ (Sahih Bukhari),
In the life on earth, all of us have the same
opportunity to reach the highest or to choose to be the
last to enter. Or some even choose not to entry, or even
choose to enter the fire of hell, God forbid, to such an
extents that the infidel chooses to enter the fire, even
though he had a chance in the word to gain Jannah.
In the Hadith it is stated: ‘All of my ummah will enter Paradise except those who refuse. The companions asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah , Who refuses? The Prophet said: ‘’Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise , and whoever disobeys me has refused (Sahih Bukhari) .
