Is the following narration authentic?

عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إن في الجنة لعمدا من ياقوت عليها غرف من زبرجد لها أبواب مفتحة تضيء كما يضيء الكوكب الدري قال قلنا يا رسول الله من يسكنها؟ قال: المتحابون في الله المتباذلون في الله والمتلاقون في الله



Imam Bazzar (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Musnad Bazzar; Al Bahruz Zakkhar, Hadith: 8776. Also see: Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 8589)


‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared a narrator weak. Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has also declared the Hadith weak.

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 278, Al Matalibul ‘Aliyah, Hadith: 4613 and 2759. Also see: Targhib, vol. 4 pg. 22)


The Hadith is suitable to quote to encourage carrying out the deeds mentioned therein, as is the rule with Hadiths of this nature.



Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “There are pillars of sapphire in Jannah. Rooms of chrysolite will be [built] upon it and they will have open doors which will illuminate like the brilliance of a star. The [Sahabah] said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Who will occupy them?’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘[For] those who love for the sake of Allah, spend for the sake of Allah and meet for the sake of Allah.’”


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
