Simple ways to Build Your House in Jannah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

So you might be struggling to get your house in this world. Maybe it’s the high cost of real estate, Interest loans, or your financial situation is tight. At any rate don’t let that get you down, because the houses we buy in this life are only temporary residences for us anyway, but In Jannah there are houses, mansions and castles. Those accommodations only share the same names with those in this life. A house in Jannah is your permanent residence. Houses made of gold and silver. There is the option to own as many as you want-Inshallah. In this article I’ll present some authentic hadith including things we can  do daily to build our palaces next to Allah.

  1. Ask Allah for a Castle in Jannah


وَضَرَبَ ٱللَّهُ مَثَلاً۬ لِّلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱمۡرَأَتَ فِرۡعَوۡنَ إِذۡ قَالَتۡ رَبِّ ٱبۡنِ لِى عِندَكَ بَيۡتً۬ا فِى ٱلۡجَنَّةِ

And Allah gives an example for those who believe: the wife of Pharaoh when she said: My Lord! Build for me a home with thee in the Garden

I heard Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, “Whosoever visits an ailing person or a brother of his to seek the Pleasure of Allah, an announcer (angel) calls out: ‘May you be happy, may your walking be blessed, and may you be awarded a dignified position in Jannah”.[2]

انا زَعِيمٌ بِبَيْتٍ فِي رَبَضِ الْجَنَّةِ لِمَنْ تَرَكَ الْمِرَاءَ وَإِنْ كَانَ مُحِقًّا وَبِبَيْتٍ فِي وَسَطِ الْجَنَّةِ لِمَنْ تَرَكَ الْكَذِبَ وَإِنْ كَانَ مَازِحًا وَبِبَيْتٍ فِي أَعْلَى الْجَنَّةِ لِمَنْ حَسَّنَ خُلُقَهُ ‏”‏

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.[7]


  1. Saying “Al-Hamdulilah and Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un” as recovery after losing a child.

قال صلى الله عليه وسلم

  إِذَا مَاتَ وَلَدُ الْعَبْدِ ، قَالَ اللَّهُ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى لِلْمَلائِكَةِ : أَقَبَضْتُمْ وَلَدَ عَبْدِي ؟ قَالُوا : نَعَمْ ، قَالَ : أَقَبَضْتُمْ ثَمَرَةَ فُؤادِهِ ؟ قَالَوا : نَعَمْ ، قَالَ : فَما قَالَ ؟ قَالُوا : اسْتَرْجَعَ وَحَمِدَكَ ، قَالَ : ابْنُوا لَهُ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ ، وَسَمُّوهُ بَيْتَ الْحَمْدِ

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “When a man’s child dies, Allah, the Exalted, asks His angels, ‘Have you taken out the life of the child of My slave?’ and they reply in the affirmative. He ( then asks, ‘Have you taken the fruit of his heart?’ and they reply in the affirmative. Then He asks, ‘What did my slave say?’ They say: ‘He praised You and said: Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un (We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return).’ Allah says: ‘Build a house for my slave in Jannah and name it Baitul-Hamd (the House of Praise).”‘[8]
