Fir’awn’s wife would see her home in Jannah in this world

Question

Can you provide a reference for this?

كانت امرأة فرعون تعذب بالشمس، فإذا انصرفوا عنها أظلتها الملائكة بأجنحتها، فكانت ترى بيتها من الجنة

 

Answer

Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah and Imam Hakim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration as the statement of Sayyiduna Salman Al Farisi (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Hakim has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs.

(Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 35801, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 496)

 

Translation

Fir’awn’s wife used to be punished by the sun. When her tormentors would leave [her to lie there] the Angels would shade her with their wings and she would be able to see her home in Jannah.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
