Passing Away During Ramadhaan


Question:

The Prophet said; “When Ramadhaan arrives the doors of Paradise are flung open and the doors of Hellfire are slammed shut.” Does this mean that one who dies in Ramadhaan enters Paradise without questioning?

Answer:

The situation is not as such. Rather, what this means is the doors of Paradise are flung open as an inspiration to the Muslims to make easy their entry (to Paradise). And the doors of Hellfire are shut to prevent the Believers from sins such that they do not enter (through) these doors. And this does not mean that one who dies in Ramadhaan enters Paradise without questioning, rather those who shall enter Paradise without questioning are those whom the Messenger has described in his statement;

They are the ones who do not steal and do not cauterise and are not pessimistic and in their Lord they put their trust.

[Fataawa Shaykh Muhammad as-Saalih al-Uthaymeen Volume 1, Page 561]
