A narration regarding Jahannam

Question

What is the source of this Hadith mentioned in Ihya ‘Ulumid Din?

يا جبريل ائتى بالنار فيجىء لها جبريل ويقول يا جهنم أجيبي خالقك ومليكك فيصادفها جبريل على غيظها وغضبها فلم يلبث بعد ندائها أن ثارت وفارت وزفرت إلى الخلائق وشهقت

 

Answer

Imam Ghazali (rahimahullah) has not cited this as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). I have not come across this as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in any primary Hadith source source.

(Ihya ‘Ulumid Din, vol. 9 pg. 549)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
