This nation has a designated door that they will enter which the other nations will not. As in the Musnad of prophetic narrations, from Ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with them), that the Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) said, “The gate of my nation by which they will enter into Paradise is three days journey in width. Then it tightens until it reaches their shoulders.”
In the narration of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) said, “Jibreal came to me and took my hand then showed me the gate of Paradise that my nation will enter.”
