The Islamic prophet, Muhammad, specified ten of his companions who were promised paradise. Those companions named in this hadith are referred to as The Ten With Glad Tidings Of Paradise (Arabic: العشرة المبشرون بالجنة; al-`Asharaa al-Mubasharûn bi-l-Janna).
Narrated Abdur Rahman bin Awf:
that the Messenger of Allah said: "Abu Bakr is in Paradise, 'Umar Al-Khattab is in Paradise, 'Uthman is in Paradise, 'Ali is in Paradise, Talhah is in Paradise, Az-Zubair is in Paradise, 'Abdur Rahman bin Awf is in Paradise, Sa'd bin Abi Waqqas is in Paradise, Sa'id ibn Zayd is in Paradise, and Abu 'Ubaidah bin Al-Jarrah is in Paradise."
Muslims put different weight on this hadith, the majority of the Sunnis, viewing it as very favourable whilst the Shiites dismmissed it in its entirety. This hadith was narrated in three collections by Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood, and Ibn Majah.
The Sunni collection of hadith, called the Kutub al-Sittah (six major hadith collections), includes: Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawood, Al-Sunan al-Sughra, Jami` at-Tirmidhi and Sunan ibn Majah. Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim are considered the most reliable of these collections.
Sunnis say that Muhammad's companions were sorted into twelve groups and of these the ten promised paradise were ranked first.
