An unreliable narration regarding who will reside in ‘Al Wasilah’, a level in Jannah

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

في الجنة درجة تدعى الوسيلة، فإذا سألتم الله فسلوا لي الوسيلة. قالوا: يا رسول الله، من يسكن معك؟ قال:علي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين

 

Answer

This narration has been recorded through a very weak chain. Hafiz Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) has declared the text of the Hadith unreliable (munkar).

(Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Surah Al Maidah, Verse: 35. Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 5 pg. 69)

 

The narration in question is not suitable to quote.

 

Translation

There is a level in Jannah called Al Wasilah. When you ask Allah, then request Al Wasilah for me. They asked, ‘O Rasulullah! Who will will live with you [on this level]. He replied, ‘Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn’ (radiyallahu ‘anhum).

 

Note

Al Wasilah being reserved for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has been authentically reported in other Hadiths.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
