A follow up query regarding the Hadith ‘Jannah lies at the feet of your mother’

Question

Are these two narrations the same? Could you please mention the Arabic of the version in Musnad Ahmad?

1) Imam Ahmad ibn Hambal in his Musnad; related by Mu’awiyah ibn Jahimah As Sulami (radiyallahu ‘anhu) in which he came to the Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said, ‘O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) I desire to go on the military expedition and I have come to consult you.’ He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked, ‘Do you have a mother?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Stick to her for indeed Jannah lies by her feet.’

 

2) Imam Nasai (rahimahullah) has authentically recorded a Hadith, in which a Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) told a Sahabi (radiyallahu ‘anhu):

‘Stick to her [his mother] for indeed Jannah lies beneath her feet.’

“When you fast, then let your hearing, your sight and tongue also fast from speaking lies and carrying out forbidden deeds, and do not cause harm to your servant. When you fasting, you should be dignified and calm. Do not make the day you are not fasting and the day of your fasting the same.”
