Status of Deceased Upon Death On Wiladah/Shahadah Date of Masumeen


Salaam Alaykum, I had a question regarding death.

I wanted to find out when a person dies during the birth or death of al masumeen,is it true that he/she goes straight to heaven?


Salaams & Duas




I am afraid to agree on this notion. The verses of Qur’an and teaching of Ahlul Bayt (as) don’t affirm such an opinion. Yes, it could be a helpful element if it is accompanied with tawbah and following of the footsteps of Masumeen when he/she was alive.

Qur’an says:

Except him who repents, and believes, and does righteous deed (s). So those, Allah will turn (Or: substitute fair deeds in place of odious ones) their odious (deeds) into fair (deeds); and Allah has been Ever-Forgiving, Ever-Merciful. (25:70)
