Why No Questioning For 70,000

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “I was shown the nations, and I saw a Prophet pass by with a group of his people, and another with a band of his people, another with only ten, another with five, and another on his own (with no followers). Then I looked and saw a large crowd of people. I asked, ‘O Jibreel, are these my Ummah?’ He said, ‘No, but look at the horizon.’ So I looked, and saw a huge multitude of people. Jibreel said: ‘These are your Ummah, and those seventy thousand in front will not be called to account or punished.’ I asked, ‘Why?’ He said, ‘They did not treat themselves with branding (cauterization) or with Ruqya (charms), and they did not see evil omens in things (i.e. they were not superstitious); they put their trust only in their Lord.’” [Bukhari]

This hadith describes the foremost characteristic of those who will enter Jannah without having to give any account: It is that they place their reliance totally on Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).

They don’t just pay lip service to Allah’s attributes, but believe with full conviction that there is no Might nor Power except with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). Thus, they are not superstitious and rely totally on Him to correct all their affairs.

This does not mean that they do not adopt Halal, recommended means to run their lives. For example, if they get sick they take medication: But they never resort to Haram means and they have the deepest conviction in the cure being from Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) and not in the means adopted. They believe from the bottom of their hearts in Allah’s Might and Power and they let no one and nothing share in Allah’s attributes.
