Kindly provide the reference for this Hadith:

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من فارق الروح الجسد وهو بريء من ثلاث: الكنز، والغلول، والدين دخل الجنة



Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Thawban (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyiduna Thawban (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever’s soul leaves his body [i.e. he passes away] and he is free of three things, will enter Jannah; Unpaid Zakah/dues on wealth, stealing from the spoils of war, and debt.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1573)


This Hadith is recorded in Hadith collections with the word ‘الكبر’ instead of ‘الكنز’, which means ‘pride’. See this version here.

(Also see: Imam Tirmidhi’s comments after Hadith: 1573)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
