How to get Jannah? Following are some ways to enter Jannah:
1. Fearing Allah
“And whoever fears to stand before his Lord, there are two gardens for him.” [Surah Rahman, verse 46]
One of the implications of this verse is that for anybody who fears standing in the spot when his/her activities will be determined before Allah on the Day of Judgment, and assuming he controlled him/herself from sins and perform great deeds, there are two gardens in the Hereafter.
2. Love for Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
وَمَنۡ يُّطِعِ اللّٰهَ وَالرَّسُوۡلَ فَاُولٰٓٮِٕكَ مَعَ الَّذِيۡنَ اَنۡعَمَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيۡهِمۡ مِّنَ النَّبِيّٖنَ وَالصِّدِّيۡقِيۡنَ وَالشُّهَدَآءِ وَالصّٰلِحِيۡنَ ۚ وَحَسُنَ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ رَفِيۡقًا ؕ
What’s more, he who submits to Allah and the Messenger they will accompany those whom Allah has favored – the Prophets, those unflinching in honesty, the martyrs, and the righteous.” How great will they be for companions? [Quran4:69]
Hazrat Anas (RA) says, Our Lord’s Messenger (PBUH) said:
“Whoever loves me will accompany me in Paradise.” [At-Tirmidhi 2678,]
3. Love for Messengers of Allah
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:
“After me follow Abu Bakr and Omar, and my Companions are the people who follow the way of Allah”
Described Jubair bin Mutim:
A lady came to the Prophet who told her to get back to him once more. She said, “What if I came and did not find you?” as though she wanted to say, “If I found you dead?” The Prophet said, “In the event that you can’t find me, go to Abu Bakr.”[Volume 5, Book 57, 11].
4. Knowledge of Religion
Information on religion is vital for being on the path of Jannah or for many different reasons as through this knowledge we will be able to know the right explanation against our creation as Allah (SW) Said:
اِنَّمَا يَخۡشَى اللّٰهَ مِنۡ عِبَادِهِ الۡعُلَمٰٓؤُا
” Only those dread Allah, from among His servants, who have knowledge”. [Quran 35:28]
The punctuality of salaat is vital as Allah said:
“And those who perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat and believe in Allah and in the Last Day, it is they to whom We shall give a great reward”. [Surah An Nisa 162]
Allah (SW) said in Quran:
وَالَّذِيۡنَ هُمۡ عَلٰى صَلَوٰتِهِمۡ يُحَافِظُوۡنَۘ
“And those who of their prayers are observant”. [Quran 23:9]

8. Kalma Tayyaba

“If a person’s last words are Laa ilaaha ill-Allah, Paradise will be guaranteed for him.”
