Bro, you can have anything in Jannah (Paradise); but we have to work in this life to earn that life.

For example, there's a farmer in a hadith (prophetic tradition) whose biggest pleasure lay in cultivating his land, and since Allah is merciful, he would give him that. So, yes, anything and everything is possible, including being a movie star in Jannah if that's your wish and aspiration.

Once the Prophet was narrating (a story), while a Bedouin was sitting with him.

“One of the inhabitants of Paradise will ask Allah to allow him to cultivate the land.

Allah will ask him, ‘Are you not living in the pleasures you like?’

He will say, ‘Yes, but I like to cultivate the land.’

When the man (will be permitted he) will sow the seeds and the plants will grow up and get ripe, ready for reaping and so on till it will be as huge as mountains within a wink.

Allah will then say to him, ‘O son of Adam! Take here you are, gather (the yield); nothing satisfies you.’”

On that, the Bedouin said, “The man must be either from Quraish (i.e. an emigrant) or an Ansari, for they are farmers, whereas we are not farmers.”

The Prophet smiled (at this). [Bukhaari, 3/39/538]
Bro, there are levels of Paradise; and what level of Paradise you're given is dependent on what you did in dunya (world). And whatever level is given to the person would be satisfying to him/her as everybody would be content with whatever has been allotted to him/her.

Well, if you don't want to do extra prayers and so on and so forth and want a shortcut, there's another way to get to the highest level of Jannah:

The Prophet said, “No deed that will be placed on the scale of deeds [on the Day of Judgement] will be heavier than good character. Indeed, a person with good character will attain the rank of those with a good record of voluntary fasts and prayers.” (Sunan At-Tirmidhee: 2003)
Yes, I suppose you could ask Allah for more palaces and castles, but whatever is given already will create so much happiness that you'll be content as avariciousness will not exist in Jannah.

As for acting in this life (simply due to the nature of the profession), I wouldn't recommend it; as to that, I think you should probably consult an Islamic scholar on the matter to get a holistic perspective on the issue.

Asalaam O alaikum...


Acting is you entertaining others.... Jannah is about you being entertained and as a guest of Allah (swt).

The nature of the worldly things are fleeting.... they end with time. Nothing remains except The One, Who is Timeless (Ad Dahr). The obsessions of the world are temporary and so will last with this world....

It is said in the Quran and Islamic Traditions that some people in order to save themselves from the Trials of the hereafter could ransom if they owned everything there was on the earth, they would do it without a 2nd thought, but will not be able to..... So if the entire World/Duniya is not worth a moment of the hereafter....

...what is acting and becoming a movie star in this Duniya worth? Think my brother.

This is one of my favourite hadith

Hadith - Al-Tirmidhi #1570, Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah

Allah's Messenger said, "On the Day of Resurrection, when people who have suffered affliction are given their reward, those who are healthy will wish their skins had been cut to pieces with scissors when they were in the world."

"Before death takes away what you are given, give away what there is to give." Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī

Leave this world in the state that you arrived. Do not hang onto anything :)

SubhAnAllah very nice. This hadith reminds me of a hadith, that there will be people on the Day of Judgment that even the Prophets and Martyrs would desire to have their ranks.

...imagine even Prophets begging for their ranks? They are the Awliya of Allah (swt), the true inheritors of Prophetic Knowledge.

JazakAllah for sharing hadith. I hope InshA'Allah we all can learn from them.
