Narrated Abdur Rahman bin Awf:
 that the Messenger of Allah said: "Abu Bakr is in Paradise, 'Umar is in Paradise, 'Uthman is in Paradise, 'Ali is in Paradise, Talhah is in Paradise, Az-Zubair is in Paradise, 'Abdur Rahman bin Awf is in Paradise, Sa'd bin Abi Waqqas is in Paradise, Sa'id ibn Zayd is in Paradise, and Abu 'Ubaidah bin Al-Jarrah is in Paradise."

— Collected by Muhammad ibn `Isa at-Tirmidhi, Jami` at-Tirmidhi

This hadith doesn't make sense because the narrator is in the hadith. The order of the names said is fishy because it put them in order of the four caliphates and the narrator was involved in the election of Uthman after Omar (r.a) death. If this hadith is true then the Prophet (s.a.w.s) in some way knew about the four caliphates in some way however, according to Sunnis he didn't elected anyone to be his successor. Is not rocket science really, this hadith goes against aql. If someone say he is wali or awliyah then he is a deviant, let alone someone narrating that he is in paradise.

Yes. Keeping the four Khalifa in sequence makes it doubtful. 

So other question is what about other sahabhi. Not mentioning their name. Does that mean they won't enter into jannah.

How can Talha and Zubair be promised paradise when they fought a war against Imam Ali (as)?

Allah can forgive abundant sins .

Will Allah forgive our sins. 

But what is authenticity of narration.

I didn't say Allah (awj) doesn't forgive sins, but being promised paradise means they must be the most pious of people with great amount of taqwa, like the ahlulbayt (as) for example, but how can Talha and Zubair achieve that status if they sided with Aisha and waged war against Imam Ali (as) which caused the death of thousands of Muslims? Saying they are promised paradise is irrational, illogical and an insult to our Imam (as). Go read up the Shi'a version of the history on the Battle of Jamal.

There are many reasons to believe the narrator was lying and made up this narration even if he came from a authentic Isnad or even if the hadith is graded saheeh, hadith scholars normally don't tend to analyze the historical context or what is being said in the hadith. First the narrator of the hadith is in the hadith itself this like someone attesting himself that he is a wali the narrator is technically claiming he can sin how much he want since the Prophet (s.a.w.s) narrated that, even claiming he have knowledge of the unseen. The second point I found is that the narrator was involved in the shura council regarding the election of Uthman or Ali, he was one of the six candidates. Third weird point is that the four khulafa is put in order, however If we analyze that the Prophet (s.a.w.s) didn't elected a successor then is pretty weird this hadith in the order of caliphates, if we say that the Prophet (s.a.w.s) did chose Ali as his successor then is even weirder and makes no since the four khulafa in order. Fourth weird point is that a lot of this names in the hadith participated in the first fitnah against the Caliphate of Ali. So if the Prophet (s.a.w.s) did said this then this mean that Talha could have killed Ali and both would go to heaven. Wonderful. It's scary the amount of hypocrites narrating hadiths even more scary is people accepting this narrations. I pray to Allah that all those who were led astray by this hypocrites and liars then blame the hypocrites and send to the fire, but I pray to Allah please save those who were led astray by this narrations out of innocence.

Abu Bakr spoke to 'Abd al-Rahman about Islam, then invited him to meet Muhammad, who heard his declaration of faith and taught him the Islamic prayers. This was before the Muslims had entered the house of Al-Arqam; 'Abd al-Rahman was one of the first eight men to accept Islam.

'Abd al-Rahman was friends with Umayyah ibn Khalaf, a stern opponent of Islam. When 'Abd al-Rahman emigrated to Medina, the two reached a written agreement, according to which 'Abd al-Rahman was to protect Umayyah's property and family in Medina, while Umayyah would protect 'Abd al-Rahman's in Mecca.

In August 634 the dying Caliph Abu Bakr called in 'Abd al-Rahman and Uthman to inform them that he had designated Umar ibn al-Khattab as successor.

In 644, the dying Umar nominated a board of six members (the Council of Shura) to elect one of themselves as the next caliph. The group consisted of Sad Ibn Abi Waqqas, Abd al-Rahman ibn Awf, Zubayr ibn al-Awwam, Talha ibn Ubayd Allah, Ali ibn Abi Talib and Uthman ibn Affan. Uthman was chosen as the third caliph by 'Abd al-Rahman ibn 'Awf

He married at least sixteen times and had over thirty known children

When 'Abd al-Rahman ibn 'Awf died, he is worth approximately 3.1 billion dinars which, at current rates of US$40 per gram, is more than US$527 billion because the dinar was the trading currency at that time.

When did he raise Quran on spears ?

Ohh, sorry I meant Amr ibn Aas. But I remember him now, he was the one who was made brother of  Usman by Prophet and in the Shura he said to Imam Ali a.s: "If you say that you follow the Sunnah of Prophet PBUHHP and Sunnah of Abu Bakr and Umer then I will give my oath of allegiance to you". Imam Ali a.s said: "I follow sunnah of Prophet PBUHHP". And after seeing his dishonesty, Imam Ali a.s said: "May Allah AWJ perfumes you with the perfume that is applied to dead bodies". It was old idiom which meant that may you both become enemies and it is said that "Abdul rehman ibn Awf became enemy to Usman till death".

Only Prophets and Imams (AS) are promised Jannah, are they not? 

If there is a citation in the Qur'an stating that only Prophets are promised paradise or something similar maybe it can abrogate this hadith.

    • Yes it is good news. But we should be cautious not allow something new to emerge. Because end of something is beginning of new thing .
    • Most Shi'a don't pray? May I remind you that being a tarik al salat might be worse than adultery.
    • What are the possible meanings of word "Kitab" in Quranic Arabic?
      It appears that it has a wide range of meanings e.g.,

       كِتَابٌ مَّرْقُومٌ
      Written Book (83:20)

      كِتَابٌ مَّعْلُومٌ
      Term made known (15:4)

      كِتَابٌ يَنطِقُ بِالْحَقِّ
      Book which speaks with truth

      لَكِتَابٌ عَزِيزٌ
      A Mighty Book (41:41)

      كِتَابٌ حَفِيظٌ
      A writing that preserves (50:4)

      And today while I was reciting the chapter 27, I found that the same word "Kitab" is used in the meaning of letter.

      كِتَابٌ كَرِيمٌ
      Honorable Letter (27:29)

      اذْهَب بِّكِتَابِي هَذَا فَأَلْقِهْ إِلَيْهِمْ ثُمَّ تَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ فَانظُرْ مَاذَا يَرْجِعُونَ قَالَتْ يَا أَيُّهَا المَلَأُ إِنِّي أُلْقِيَ إِلَيَّ كِتَابٌ كَرِيمٌ


      So as per translations, "Kitab" possibly means "Book", "Record", "Writing", "Letter", "Term"...

      Please share with me if you know more possible meanings of word "Kitab" or its root word "Ka Ta Ba"..
    • Out of curiosity - what would you personally require to know that God exits? I mean, do you wanna see a big white fluff of cotton to know God exists or something like that?
    • So now we will have to define sense and perception. Sense is ability to think and perception is ability to understand. And when you understand and think obviously you will deduce somethings.
