Asking for higher Jannah in Jannah

Fatwaa ID: 396


I was wondering , If in heaven one is able to have all their desires granted, is it not possible to wish for a place in the highest level of heaven?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The question in reference is illogical and incorrect. The elevation of one’s status in Jannah or acquiring of the highest level of Jannah is based on one’s actions in the world and ultimately the mercy of Allaah Ta’aala in the Hereafter. This does not fall within the scope of “wish” or “desire”. One should strive and aim for that whilst in this life.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
