Is this Hadith authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“A place in Jannah [as small] as a bow is better than all that on which the sun rises and sets” [i.e. better than the entire world]
Yes. Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah and Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).
The narration is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2793, 2796, 6568)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
