The three benefits of sitting in the Masjid

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The one who sits in the Masjid, [derives at least one benefit from these three]; Either he meets a Muslim brother from whom he may benefit [in terms of Din], or he hears a word of wisdom, or receives Mercy from Allah [for which every Muslim waits for]”

 

Answer

Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith, as part of a longer narration with a weak chain.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 2 pg. 418, Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pg. 22)

 

The narration is suitable to quote as a means of encouragement to stay in the Masjid, as is the case with Hadiths of this nature.

(Also see: Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 220)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
