Is this Hadith authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Definitely, a person in Jannah will marry 500 Hurs, 4000 virgins and 8000 previously married women, He will embrace each one for as long as he lived in this world”
Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) with a weak chain. Hafiz Ibn Hajar Al ‘Asqalani (rahimahullah) states, ‘The chain consists of an unnamed narrator.’
(Al Ba’th Wan Nushur, Hadith: 951, Fathul Bari, Hadith: 3240-3246, vol. 6 pg. 325)
Imam Abush Shaykh Al Asbahani has recorded this narration as the statement of ‘Abdur Rahman ibn Sabit (rahimahullah), a Tabi’i.
(Kitabul ‘Azamah, Hadith: 591)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
