The Ten Promised Paradise – Ashrae Mubasharah

The Ashra e Mubasharah

The Ten Who Were Given the Glad Tidings of Paradise

Who are the Ashra e Mubasharah?

  • Ashra means ten and Mubasharah means good news or glad tidings
  • Ashra e Mubasharah is a term used to refer to ten companions of Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alayhe Wasallam about whom he clearly stated that they will be in Paradise.

“Abu Bakr will be in Paradise, Umar will be in Paradise, Uthman will be in Paradise, Ali will be in Paradise, Talhah will be in Paradise, Al-Zubayr will be in Paradise, Abdul-Rahman ibn Awf will be in Paradise, Sad ibn Abi Waqqas will be in Paradise, Said ibn Zayd will be in Paradise and Abu Ubaydah ibn al-Jarrah will be in Paradise.” Its isnad is sahih. [Sahih al-Jami’ as-Saghir, 1/70, no. 50]

All of these ten Companions were the earliest converts to Islam and all of them emigrated in the way of Allah.

Allah says about all the early converts to Islam from the  emigrants (Muhajreen) and the helpers (Ansar) in the Quran:

“And the first to embrace Islâm of the Muhâjirûn and the Ansâr  and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith). Allâh is well-pleased with them as they are well-pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success.” (Tawbah :100)
