Which animals go to Jannah


As-salamu’aleykum wr wb,

I watched this video on Sufilive by Dr Noor. It mentions a ant that it’s one of the ten animals that will go to Jannah. What are the other 9 animals that will go to Jannah?


Alaykum Salam,

The best is to ask him directly, or look up my article on animals in the Integrated Encyclopedia of Qur’an vol. I, entry ‘Animals’ for the complete list of the animals mentioned in the Qur’an such as the hud-hud (hoopoe) of Sulayman عليه السلام and the kalb (dog) of the Companions of the Cave etc., then look them up in Hafiz al-Damiri’s book Kitab al-Hayawan al-Kubra  [old edition] in their respective alphabetical entries, which I myself have not read in full, but where such a detail might be mentioned.
