• hearts • that • lead • to • jannah •

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “A group of people (both men and women) whose hearts will be like the hearts of birds, will enter Jannah“.
[Muslim].


It has been interpreted that such people are those who put their trust in Allah; another interpretation is that these people are tender-hearted
.

commentary by imaam an-nawawi:

1. Excellence of trust in Allah and kindness of heart are most valuable qualities because both of them are means to enter Jannah.

2. One should not worry much about one’s food and means of subsistence. In fact, people should have the heart like birds who do not collect to keep in reserve anything and go out every morning in search of food and return to their nests fully satiated. This advice is repeated in another hadith to the effect that when birds leave their nests in the morning they are hungry but when they come back, their stomachs are full and they do not need any more food.
