In a Hadith the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said,
My Ummah (nation) will split into seventy-three sects...
Will all the members of these sects be admitted into Jannah (Paradise) and none of them dwell eternally in Hell
It was authentically reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said,
"The Jews split into seventy-one sects and
the Christians split into seventy-two sects. This Ummah will split into seventy-three sects, all of which will be in the Fire, except one." They asked, "Which one, O Messenger of Allah?" He (peace be upon him) answered, "Anyone who follows what I and my Sahabah (Companions) are following today."
This Hadith shows which group (Part No. 2; Page No. 233) will be successful, and it will be the one that holds fast onto the Shari`ah (Islamic law) in their words, deeds, and beliefs. Anyone who dies in this condition will definitely be admitted into Jannah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
