Even though Islam emphasizes on being good and doing good as the path to heaven, some misled Muslims believe that killing non-Muslims will get them to heaven.

NO Muslims do not kill to get to heaven if anything that is considered the way to HELL. Only under extreme circumstance like jihad when an enemy will force Muslims into war is killing a person permissible.

Does it occur? Yes, there are incidents of Muslims committing acts of violence with the intent to get to heaven. However, it is not the prevailing way that Muslims try to enter heaven as most Muslims try to gain entry through piety. There is also some argument as to whether or not terrorism is Islamically acceptable for entrance to heaven.

According to Islam, the only guaranteed way to get to heaven is to die defending Muslims from Non-Muslims in war. This is mentioned in the Hadith collections, specifically Sahih al-Bukhari 1:2:36 (referenced below). However, scholars have noted that killing non-combatants is generally unacceptable and that committing suicide intentionally in order to achieve Paradise voids this benefit. There are salient minority opinions on both points, primarily espoused by the leaders and supporters of Jihadist organizations.

While entrance from piety is not guaranteed, it is not a difficult bar to meet and most Muslims believe that they will go to Paradise if they live honest and pious lives.

Sahih al-Bukhari 1:2:36
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, "The person who participates in (Holy battles) in Allah's cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His Apostles, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr). Had I not found it difficult for my followers, then I would not remain behind any sariya going for Jihad and I would have loved to be martyred in Allah's cause and then made alive, and then martyred and then made alive, and then again martyred in His cause."

It depends how you look at it. If you believe there is a different heaven for each religion the No. If you believe in the absoluteness of one religion then Yes and No depending on the Religion and standpoint. Some Muslims believe some Christians will go to heaven and some Christians believe some Muslims will go to heaven, in which case the answer would be Yes. But many from these two faiths believe the others are destined to burn for eternity in Hell, therefore No.


Definitely. They believe in Almighty Allah, worship Him and pray to him
