Number of Women in Jannah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is this Hadith authentic?

I entered Jannah and saw that most of its dwellers were women.

Narrated by al-Bayhaqi in al-Ba’th wal-Nushur and Ibn ‘Asakir in Tarikh Dimashq.

 

Answer

(Mukhtasarul Maqasid, Hadith: 453. Also see: Al-Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 483 and Kashful Khafa, Hadith: 1288)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
