Fight For Jannah
OKAY so this is an Islamic story I found on youtube by account name SoldierofAllah2 that I think everyone should know as it gives us motivation that we should try be like these people.
JUST IN CASE YOU DON'T KNOW THE (s) after Muhammad or Prophet means may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him.
Its a commonly known story so you might've herd of it~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There once existed two people which the Prophet (s) told us about in the time of the Prophet. They used to challenge each other in everything they did. They loved each other for the sake of Allah and they would try to pray and beat each other in prayers, so they would pray night prayers, and they would fast more days than the other. When one friend found or heard that his brother would fast two days his brother would fast three days. When one heard that his brother fasted every Mondays and Thursdays his brother would fast every second day. When one brother donated donated from his wealth the other brother would beat him and donate more.
One day they both went out to jihad, fighting at battle against who were attacking the Muslims, attacking the oppressed ones, driving people out of their homes. The brothers thought that it was a great chance to reach the highest place in Jannah (paradise).
Because Allah loves those who defend the weak, they set out and began to fight in the battle until they lost each other. Then one of them was a captive and those who oppresses enemies, they caught this captive and they begun to torture him and torture him and every time they tortured him he began to laugh and the mushrikeens [ polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, those who worship others along with Allah, and also those who set up rivals with (or partners to) Allah] said, "Why are you laughing? I'm torturing you. You're a captive." The Muslim said to him, "I am laughing because alhamdulillah [Praise be to Allah. This phraze is said in thanks to God] I am going to die as a shaheed [Martyr] and beat my brother to Jannah [heaven/paradise, but can also refer to a wonderful garden]. Thats it I've beat him."
They said, "What the... What's wrong with you? What is wrong with you Muslims? The same person like you we caught before he said the same thing before he died."
And the Muslim started to cry but still died and Allah says that they met each other in paradise.
ITS A PRETTY EMOTIONAL STOPRY WHICH YEH WE'RE LIKE OH MYY GOD LOL
