The gatherings of dhikr take you to Jannah

Question

If this a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam?

“The benefit/booty of the gathering of dhikr is Jannah”

 

Answer

Yes it is. Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr once asked Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), “What is the benefit of [attending] gatherings of dhikr’? [gatherings of the remembrance of Allah]. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘The benefit of the gatherings of dhikr is Jannah.'”

Some versions of the narration state that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) repeated the word ‘Jannah’ twice.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 2 pg. 177 and pg. 190)

 

‘Allamah Mundhiri and ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahumallah) have declared the chain sound (hasan).

(Targhib, vol. 2 pg. 405 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 78)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
