Question

Is this narration authentic?

يدخل الجنة رجل، فلا يبقى أهل دار ولا أهل غرفة إلا قالوا: مرحبا مرحبا، إلينا إلينا، فقال أبو بكر: يا رسول الله، ما توى على هذا الرجل في ذلك اليوم. قال: أجل، وأنت هو يا أبا بكر

 

Answer

Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has declared this Hadith authentic.

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has also recorded similar words on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the narrators reliable.

Translation

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“A Man will enter Jannah. Every inhabitant [in the various rooms/stages] of Jannah will be welcoming him saying, ‘Come to us, Come to us.’ Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said, ‘O Rasulullah! On that day this man will have no regrets/will not be at a loss.’. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Most certainly, and you will be this man O Abu Bakr.’
