Reward for a person with an atom of Iman

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I frequently hear a reward like the following:

“One who passed away and brings Iman the size of an atom, will be rewarded with Jannah, which size is tenfold than this world.”

1. Is this from any Hadith? If so, please provide the reference and authenticity?

2. Is it right so say the word ‘world’ means everything that is between the seventh sky and the seventh earth?



1. This has been mentioned in the Hadith as the reward for the ‘last person to enter Jannah’ who is also referred to as ‘the inhabitant of Jannah with the lowest rank.’

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6571 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 460)


2. ‘World’ here refers to the earth, as understood from another Hadith.

Refer: Sharhun Nawawi, Hadith: 460-461

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
