Hi, 

I want to know what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) said about the Jews, the Christians and the Sabians, about them going to heaven or hell ? 

The following verse 2:62 says, it is not necessary to be a believer in Qur'an to reach heaven, is it true even after the arrival of Prophet Muhammad SAW, or only for those Jews/Christians/Sabians before Prophet Muhammad SAW ? From the language of the verse, it is quite generic. 

Yusuf Ali: Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

Hello,

I will give you an example, during the ambush at Karbala, in the caravan there was a Christian man named Jawn bin Huwai (جون بن حوي), shortly before the massacre ensued, Imam told him to leave to safety as the issue did not concern him. Jawn refused and insisted on staying. The very next day he died defending Prophet’s grandson against the so called “Muslims” that came in tens of thousands to kill him. Those are the Christians that the Qur’an speaks of. The very righteous and pure Christians, Jews and Sabians that stay righteous, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve

In my understanding, the Qur'an doesn’t refer to 99% of Christians, Jews or Sabians of any era, but just that exact 1%. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ) knows best.

Alhamdulilah, 

Allah knows who his believers are. No one can can make a percentage as to how many of who is going to Jannah. There are pure believing  Tawhid Christians and pure believing Tawhid Hebrews.

There was a Christian monk by the name of Bahira who noticed the presence of the future to be Messenger Muhammad SAW from an incoming caravan. He noticed all the signs and identified the markings and told Abu Talib who he was to be and he also informed Abu Talib about his future son to be the Imam of the Ummah.

Bahira was extremely happy about meeting the young Prophet and said had he not been of old age he would pick up a sword and fight for the future to be Messenger Muhammad SAW. These type of Christians are who the Qur'an talks about enjoying gardens of bliss.
