Is this narration authentic?

إن في الجنة حوراء يقال لها العيناء إذا مشت مشى حولها سبعون ألف وصيفة عن يمينها وعن يسارها كذلك وهي تقول: أين الآمرون بالمعروف والناهون عن المنكر؟



This narration has been cited as the statement of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu), in a few non primary Hadith sources without a full chain.

(At Tadhkirah of Imam Qurtubi, vol. 2 pg. 418, An Nihayah Fil Fitan Wal Malahim, vol. 2 pg. 239 and ‘Umdatul Qari, Hadith: 2796, vol. 10 pg. 99)


I have not come across the full chain.



There is a maiden in Jannah called ‘Al ‘Ayna’. She walks with seventy thousand (70 000) servants on either side, saying ‘Where are those who would enjoin good and forbid evil’?

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
