Kindly provide the authenticity of the narration recorded by Imam Ishaq ibn Rahuyah wherein Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) related a Hadith to Sayyiduna ‘Umar ibnul Khattab (radiyallahu ‘anhu) regarding the last person to enter Jannah.
In this narration, it is said that the last person to cross the sirat [i.e. bridge, and enter Jannah] will open a door made of green emeralds, finding 70 more doors, each containing maidens, couches, and servants. He will then sit with his wife, after which she will hand him a goblet. Thereafter, she will say: “Ever since I handed you the goblet, you have most certainly become 70 times more handsome than you were!”
He will then reply: “And surely you, since the time you handed me the goblet, have [also] become 70 times more beautiful”
