Status Of Christians And Jews

Q:

Would Christians and Jews who are pious, righteous people would be blessed with Jannah?

A:

Salaamun alaykum

Thank you for your question. As long as they do not reject Islam whilst knowing the truth of it and fulfil the conditions of their own religions they may go to heaven. There are many factors involved and so the ultimate judgement rests in God’s Hands. As for Christians and Jews who practiced their religion before the advent of Islam, the Quran clearly states that they will attain salvation (2:62)
 
May you always be successful.
