Is the following narration reliable?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Modesty is from Iman and the [people of] Iman will be in Jannah”
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He, as well as Imam Ibn Hibban have declared the Hadith as authentic (sahih).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2009 and Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 608)
The first part of this narration, ‘Modesty is from Iman’ has also been recorded by Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) in his sahih.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 24 and 6118)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
