Enter Paradise by Fasting

Abu Umamah reported, I came to the Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) and said,

“Order me to do a deed that will allow me to enter Paradise”

He said:

“Stick to fasting, as there is no equivalent to it.”

Then I came to him again and he said:

“Stick to fasting.”

    May Allah(swt) give us strength to complete our fasts. And may we be among those who enter through the the door of Al-Raiyan, ameen.

    Sahih Al Bukhari Volume 3, Book 31, Number 120:

    Narrated Sahl:

    The Prophet said, “There is a gate in Paradise called Ar-Raiyan, and those who observe fasts will enter through it on the Day of Resurrection and none except them will enter through it. It will be said, ‘Where are those who used to observe fasts?’ They will get up, and none except them will enter through it. After their entry the gate will be closed and nobody will enter through it.”
