Qualities of the Abdal which will grant them entry into Jannah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Kindly verify and provide the references of the following Hadith:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The abdal from my nation did not enter into Jannah with their actions, but rather through the mercy of Allah, through the unparalleled generosity of their souls, the fact that they hold no grudge or hatred against anyone and their hearts being at peace with everyone, and through mercy for the entirety of Muslims.”



Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a weak chain.

(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 10394)


Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has also recorded similar words on the authority of Hasan Al Basri (rahimahullah) mursalan (When the Tabi’i omits his source).

(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 10393)


After citing a few Hadiths on this topic, including the one question, ‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) says, ‘Some of these Hadiths are weaker than the others.’

(Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 8. Also see: Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 3308 and Lisanul Mizan, vol. 7 pg. 307)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
