The reward for those who habitually frequent the Masjid

Question

Is this Hadith reliable?

عن أنس قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إن الله لينادي يوم القيامة أين جيراني أين جيراني قال: فتقول الملائكة ربنا ومن ينبغي أن يجاورك فيقول أين عمار المساجد

 

Answer

Imam Harith (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his Musnad on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a suitable chain.

The Hadith may be quoted.

(Musnadul Harith; Bughyatul Bahith, Hadith: 126. Also see: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pg. 23)

 

Translation

Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“On the Day of Qiyamah, Allah Ta’ala will announce ‘Where are my neighbours, where are my neighbours?’. The Angels will say, ‘O Allah, Who [can have the privilege] of being beside You?’ Allah Ta’ala will then say, Where are those who would frequent the Masjids?’

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
