A sinful nation and a merciful Rabb

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

What is the authenticity of the following narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“I entered Jannah, and I saw three lines inscribed in gold on one of the door panels of Jannah. The first line read ‘La ilaha illallahu Muhammadur Rasulullah’. The second line read ‘Whatever we have sent forth, we have found, what we have consumed we have profited from and we have lost what we left behind’. The third line read, ‘A sinful nation and a merciful Rabb”



This Hadith has been recorded in Tarikh Qazwin and  Tarikh Baghdad of Ibnun Najjar. ‘Allamah Munawi and ‘Allamah ‘Azizi (rahimahumallah) have declared the chain weak.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
