A man was granted Jannah for removing a thorny branch which was causing inconvenience

Question

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“A thorny branch was causing trouble to Muslims. A man came and cut it and due to this was forgiven/ gained entry into Jannah”

 

Answer

Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 652, 2829 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1914 and before Hadith: 2618)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
