Jannah lies beneath the feet of your mother

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is the Hadith ‘Paradise lies at the foot of your mother’ sahih?


Imam Nasai (rahimahullah) has authentically recorded a Hadith, in which a Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) told a Sahabi (radiyallahu’anhu):

‘Stick to her [his mother] for indeed Jannah lies beneath her feet.’

فَالْزَمْها فاِنَّ الجنّةَ تَحْتَ رِجْلَيْها

(Sunan Nasai, Hadith: 3104, Musnad Ahmad, vol.3 pg. 429, Mushkilul Athar, Hadith: 2132, Declared authentic -sahih- by Imams Hakim and Dhahabi (rahimahullah); Mustdarak Hakim, vol.4 pg.151. Also see Al-Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 373 & Hukmul ‘amal bil Hadithid Da’if of Shaykh ‘Awwamah, pg.97 & 106)

Note: When quoting the Arabic, it’s better to quote these words.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
