A Believer will visit some of his spouses in Jannah in a hollowed pearl tent

Question

What is the reference for this Hadith?

إن للمؤمن في الجنة لخيمة من لؤلؤة واحدة مجوفة، طولها ستون ميلا، للمؤمن فيها أهلون، يطوف عليهم المؤمن فلا يرى بعضهم بعضا

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded these words in his Sahih on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Qays (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has also recorded this narration with slight variation in the wording. See here

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Qays (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The Believer will have a hollowed pearl tent in Jannah which will be 60 miles in length. The Believer will have spouses whom he will visit but none of them will see the other.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2838)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
