Question

Is this suitable to quote?

إن الله تبارك وتعالى يقول لأهل الجنة إذا دخلوها: إن لكل ضيف جزورا، وإني أجزركم اليوم حوتا وثورا، فتجزر لأهل الجنة

 

Answer

This narration is recorded in Imam Nu’aym ibn Hammad’s additions to Kitabuz Zuhd of Imam ‘Abdullah ibn Al Mubarak (Hadith: 432), as the statement of the Tabi’i; Ka’b Al Ahbar (rahimahullah).

Hafiz Ibn Hajar Al ‘Asqalani (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound (hasan).
