Hadith on Jihad: Whoever has faith enters Paradise, jihad or not

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever has faith in Allah and his messenger, establishes prayer, and fasts the month of Ramadan will have a right upon Allah that he will enter Paradise whether he strives in jihad in the way of Allah or remains in his homeland.” They said, “O Messenger of Allah, shall we not give the glad tidings to people?” The Prophet said, “Verily, in Paradise are one hundred levels which Allah has reserved for those who strive in jihad in his way; the distance between two levels is like the distance between heavens and earth. When you ask Allah, ask for al-Firdaws as it is the best and highest level of Paradise, above which is the Throne of the Most Merciful from which the rivers of Paradise flow.”

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَبِرَسُولِهِ وَأَقَامَ الصَّلَاةَ وَصَامَ رَمَضَانَ كَانَ حَقًّا عَلَى اللَّهِ أَنْ يُدْخِلَهُ الْجَنَّةَ جَاهَدَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَوْ جَلَسَ فِي أَرْضِهِ الَّتِي وُلِدَ فِيهَا فَقَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَفَلَا نُبَشِّرُ النَّاسَ قَالَ إِنَّ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مِائَةَ دَرَجَةٍ أَعَدَّهَا اللَّهُ لِلْمُجَاهِدِينَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ مَا بَيْنَ الدَّرَجَتَيْنِ كَمَا بَيْنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ فَإِذَا سَأَلْتُمُ اللَّهَ فَاسْأَلُوهُ الْفِرْدَوْسَ فَإِنَّهُ أَوْسَطُ الْجَنَّةِ وَأَعْلَى الْجَنَّةِ أُرَاهُ فَوْقَهُ عَرْشُ الرَّحْمَنِ وَمِنْهُ تَفَجَّرُ أَنْهَارُ الْجَنَّةِ
