Is this narration authentic?
عن جابر أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مر بعمار وأهله وهم يعذبون فقال: أبشروا آل عمار وآل ياسر فإن موعدكم الجنة
Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs.
(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 3 pg. 388/389)
Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) once passed by ‘Ammar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and his family while they were being tortured and said, “Glad tidings O family of ‘Ammar and family of Yasir, for Jannah is promised for you.”
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
