Whoever dies worshiping others along with God

Abdullah ibn Mas’ood narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) said:



مَنْ مَاتَ يُشْرِكُ بِاللهِ شَيْئًا دَخَلَ النَّارَ



Whoever dies worshiping someone or something along with Allah (God, The Creator) will enter the Fire”



وَقُلْتُ أَنَا: مَنْ مَاتَ لا يُشْرِكُ بِاللهِ شَيْئًا دَخَلَ الجَنَّة



And I (Abdullah ibn Masood) then said: “Whoever dies not worshiping others along with Allah (i.e. worshiping Him alone as a Muslim) will enter the Paradise”



(Translator’s Note – the Prophet Muhammad – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – gave his tacit approval to this statement by not correcting it)
