‘Abdullah’s ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) narration regarding Jannatu ‘Adn

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com


What is the authenticity of the Hadith in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah reported by ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) regarding a palace in Jannah called ‘Adn’ which has 5000 doors?


The narration you are referring to in Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah is as follows:

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said: “There is a palace in Jannah called ‘Adn’ which has 5000 doors. Each of these doors [lead to] 5000 additional doors and each of these doors have 5000 [Yemeni garments] upon them.” Ya’la [one of the narrators] said: “I think he then said, ‘Only a Nabi, siddiq or martyr will be granted access.’”

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 19726. Also see: Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 19739, Tafsir Tabari; Jami’ul Bayan, Surah Tawbah, Verse: 72, vol. 11 pg. 563 and Surah Ra’d, Verse: 23-24, vol. 13 pg. 512)

Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah (hafizahullah) has graded the chain sound (hasan).

(Footnotes on Musannaf, Hadith: 19726)

The narration should be quoted as reported, i.e. As the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma)
