A jewel tent in Jannah for the lowest ranked person in Jannah

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

There is a Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu) which states that the lowest ranked person in Jannah will have a tent made of pearls, chrysolite/peridot and sapphire the size of the distance between Al Jabiyah and San’a.

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The part in question is as follows:

“…A tent will be erected for him [i.e. The lowest ranked person in Jannah] which will be made of pearls, chrysolite/peridot and sapphire. It will be the size of the distance between Al Jabiyah [A city in Sham] and San’a [the Capital of Yemen].”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2562)

 

Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration (with his own chain) and has declared the Hadith authentic.

(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 7401)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
