The first to enter Jannah

Question

Is the following an authentic Hadith

ان الجنة حرمت على الانبياء كلهم حتى ادخلها وحرمت على الامم حتى تدخلها امتي

Answer

This Hadith is recorded by Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhu).
(Al-Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 946)

‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound (hasan).
(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol.10 pg.68)

 

Translation

Indeed Jannah is forbidden to all the Ambiya (‘alayhimus salam) until I enter it, and it is forbidden upon the Ummahs (nations) until my Ummah (nation) enters it.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
