Is this narration correct?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) stated:

“[Among the] first people to be called to enter Jannah will be those who praised Allah in times of happiness and sadness [in prosperity and in adversity].



Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). He has declared the Hadith authentic and Hafiz Dhahabi concurs.

Imam Bazzar (rahimahullah) has also recorded a similar narration. ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared this chain sound (hasan).

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
