Those Who Will Enter Paradise Without Being Called to Account The first group of this ummah who will enter Paradise will be those who were pre-eminent in their imaan, taqwaa, righteous deeds and adherence to the true religion.

Pictures of Their Punishments (Continued) 11Their sorrow, regret and supplications When the Kuffaar see Hell, they will be filled with intense regret, at a time when regret will be of no avail: “… they would declare [their] repentance when they see the penalty but the judgement between them will be with justice, and no wrong will be done unto them.” (10:54) When the Kuffaar looks at the record of his deeds, and sees his kufr and shirk, for which he deserves eternal Hell, he will pray for oblivion and death: ” But he who is given his Record behind his back, soon will he cry for perdition, and he will enter
