A Hadith regarding the occurrences of the Hereafter


How sound is the Hadith in Mustadrak Al Hakim (8751) about the Day of Judgement? The Hadith states that every one will be given light on Day of Judgement in accordance to their deeds. The Hadith continues to say that among the last people to enter Jannah will fall in prostration and it will be said to him ‘This is one of your many homes.’



Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this lengthy Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 589-592)


‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has declared the text of this Hadith unreliable. (ما أنكره حديثا على جودة إسناده)

However, it should be noted that many parts of this lengthy Hadith have been authentically reported in other Hadiths.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
