What is the authenticity of the following Hadith?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “When a woman performs her five daily Salah, fasts in Ramadan, guards her private parts and obeys her husband, then she will be allowed to enter through any gate of Jannah she wishes”
Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and has declared the Hadith authentic.
(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 4163. Also see: Musnad Ahmad, vol. 1 pg. 191)
‘Allamah Munawi (rahimahullah) adds another condition, “Together with doing the above, she also abstains from major sins.”
(Refer: Faydul Qadir, under Hadith: 725)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
