Mother, as Muslims, we believe that heaven is the final place of human life which is described as full of grace and enjoyment. Allah SWT has promised this place to His chosen people.
The promise of Allah SWT is written in the Qur’an. Mahir Ahmad Ash-Shufiy in his book, Jinanul Khuldi: Na’imuha wa Qushuruha wa Huruha, details that there are 14 groups that are promised to enter heaven according to the words of Allah SWT in the Qur’an.
People who are promised go to heaven
1. Those who believe and do good
Those who believe and do good are one of the groups of people who are promised to enter heaven. Allah SWT said,

And give good news to those who believe and do righteous deeds that for them will be gardens under which rivers flow. Whenever they are provided with fruit therefrom, they will be provided with. 25 They said, “This is what we were provided with before,” and they were brought with it resembling it. And they will have therein purified wives, and they will abide therein forever. 25
Meaning: “Give glad tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds that for them (are prepared) the heavens under which rivers flow. Every time they are given sustenance from its fruits, they say, “This is the sustenance given to before us.” They were given similar (fruits) and there they (obtained) purified spouses. They remained therein.” (QS Al Baqarah: 25)
Also in another verse,
Indeed, this Qur’an guides to that which is most upright and gives good news to the believers who do righteous deeds that for them is a great reward. 9
Meaning: “Indeed this Al-Qur’an guides to the straightest (path) and gives glad tidings to the believers who do good deeds that for them there is a very great reward.” (QS Al Isra: 9)
2. People who migrated and fought in the way of God
The other people who are promised to enter heaven are those who migrated and fought in the way of Allah SWT. As Allah SWT said,
They will abide therein forever. Indeed, with God is a great reward. 22 O you who have believed, do not take your fathers and brothers as brothers. How many are your friends when they prefer disbelief over faith? And whoever of you befriends them – your friends are the wrongdoers. 23
Meaning: “They remain in it forever. Verily with God is a very great reward. O believers, do not make your fathers and your brothers as protectors if they love disbelief more than faith. Whoever among You make them protectors, then they are the wrongdoers.” (QS At Taubah: 22-23)
