Question

assalamu alaikum wara matullahi wa
barakatoh. whoever dies while his last word
was the kalima will enter parasise.... what
about allahu akbar? if it is his last word then
dies, does he also enter paradise with that
word? thank u

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.
Whoever his last words were ‘Allahu Akbar’,
and he dies directly after that, then good is
hoped for him as he died while doing a good
deed as the Prophet said: “…The person
of Paradise dies while performing a deed of
the people of Paradise.” [Ahmad and At-
Tirmithi] The scholars said: “…a deed
of the people of Paradise means a deed that
means that he is a believer who has certainty
[with regard to his faith].” This includes any
good deed and is not restricted to uttering
the Shahadah (the testimony of faith).
This general meaning is also supported by
the saying of the Prophet “…And
whoever fasts a day for the sake of Allah and
dies in this state [i.e. this is his last deed], he
will enter Paradise, and whoever gives a
charity for the sake of Allah and dies in this
state, he will enter Paradise.” [Ahmad] Thus,
the Prophet mentioned that whoever
dies and his last deed was fasting or giving
charity, he will enter Paradise, so entering
Paradise is not only specific to someone who
uttered the word of Tawheed [The Shahadah];
rather, he may enter Paradise through any
good deed done at the end of his life.
There is no doubt that the word of Tawheed
[The Shahadah] is the best word a person
may say as in the Hadeeth which reads: “…
The best thing that I and the Prophets before
me said is: “La ilaha illa Allah wahdahu la
shareeka lah, lahu Al-mulku walahu Al-
hamdu, wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay-in
qadeer" [‘None has the right to be
worshipped except Allah, alone without
associate, to Him belongs sovereignty and
praise and He is over all things wholly
capable.]” [At-Tirmithi]
Allah Knows best.
