Hi @Son of Placid 

The text of the hadith: "The Jews divided into 71 sects, one of which is in the Heaven and 70 of which are in the Hell; the Nazarites divided into 72 sects; 71 of which is in the Hell and one of which is in the Heaven; and I swear to the One in whose hand is Muhammad's life, my nation will divide into 73 sects; one of which is in the Heaven and 72 of which are in the Hell."

The hadith is silent about what the saved Islamic sect is and what characteristics it possesses, but there are other hadiths from the Prophet (s) in which different and contradictory answers are given to this question. In some hadiths, the Prophet (s) introduced the saved and the misguided sects. According to a rare hadith, all the sects, except Zanadiqa (unbelievers) will go to the Heaven.


According to a hadith attributed to Imam Ali (a), the saved sect is the Shi'a of the Imam (a).

Hadith al-Iftiraq is not cited in the Shiite Four Books and Sunni Sahihayn. Even some early researchers of Islamic sects, such as al-Nawbakhti in his Firaq al-Shi'a and Abu l-Hasan al-Ash'ari in his Maqalat al-Islamiyyin have not cited the hadith. Some researchers of Islamic sects, such as Ibn Hazm al-Zahiri (d. 456/1063) held that the hadith is unreliable and Ibn Wazir believed that the last part of the hadith is fabricated.

According to a hadith attributed to Imam Ali (a), the saved sect is the Shi'a of the Imam (a).

There is a Hadith where even Jesus will intervene for the christians on judgement day and ask God that they be allowed into heaven on his behalf so even if christians don’t become muslims formally they can still enter paradise also the Jews too, Allah is most merciful 

I searched by myself and I don’t think you could show a source for your Hadith because it doesn’t exist. Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام)) says if you take your praying lightly , you are not worthy of intercession.

let alone being a disbeliever to prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h). Quran 48:13

I’ll find this Hadith gonna need time it was in a book so gonna take some searching 

yes I agree without prayers hard to pass judgement day but u do have to understand there is christians who pray maybe not as much as we do or in a ritual way but some have a type of prayer , ie monks popes priests especially the orthodox ones they have ritual prayers too which is similar to Jewish prayers
