Jannah for that wife with whom the husband is pleased

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is this a Hadith?

When a woman’s husband dies while he is happy with her Jannah becomes wajib on her.


Sayyidatuna Ummu Salamah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Any woman who passes away and her husband is pleased with her will enter Jannah”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1161, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 173)

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has classified the above Hadith sound (hasan). Imam Hakim and ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahumallah) have classified the Hadith authentic (sahih).


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
