Jibril (‘alayhis salam) praises Hafsah (radiyallahu ‘anha)

Jibril (‘alayhis salam) told Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi ‘alayhi wa sallam) regarding Hafsah (radiyallahu ‘anha):

“She fasts very often and is often offering Salah, she will be your wife in Jannah too.”

Is this Hadith authentic?


Yes, it is.

The Hadith is recorded in Mustadrak Hakim, Musnad Bazzar, Al Mu’jamul Kabir and other Hadith sources with a few chains.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 15, Musnad Bazzar; Al Bahruz Zakkhar, Hadith: 1401, Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 934, vol. 18)

‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has declared one chain eligible (salih). ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the narrators of one chain of Tabarani reliable.

(Siyaru A’alamin Nubala, vol. 2 pg. 229, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 9 pg. 245. Also see: vol. 9 pg. 244, Fathul Bari, Hadith: 5191, vol. 9 pg. 286 and Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 6079)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
