Questions and Answers > Paradise > Salvation in Islam

Are followers of Muhammad sure about salvation?

Qur'an 7:168 is about following the Messenger, the unlettered prophet and there is no any suggestion where someone can be saved. This verse is not about salvation but guidance and that is a different thing.

The intercession of Muhammad helps not to go to paradise (Qur'an 7:188, 11:34, 4:123, 16:37, 9:80 and 39:44). Only the Gospel is sure about salvation. When you believe that the glorious and righteous Jesus Christ died for your sins and when you put trust in that, you sins will be forgiven and you will enter Paradise:

"Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" (John 1:29).

"I am the Resurrection and the Life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies" (John 11:25).

"He who hears My Word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life" (John 5:24).

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
