How can a Ummati enter Jannah before a Nabi?”

QUESTION:

I got a question regarding the Hadeeth of bilaal r.a footsteps in jannah that is on your website

Is there a Hadeeth saying that Bilaal r.a will be holding the reins of Nabi S.A.W. Camel thus entering Jannah first or is it a commentary that the Ulema give when the question arises…”How can a Ummati enter Jannah before a Nabi?”

ANSWER:
Hazrat Bilaal(R.A)is the severant of Nabi (S.A.W) thus, his entrance into Janaat will be in the manner of a servant not that he Bilaal (R.A) is better than Nabi (S.A.W). In practical life, it is commonly known that the servant walks ahead of the master while the master walks behind, without detesting the action of the servant being in front of him

And AllãhTa’ãla knows best
