Jannah beneath the feet of both parents


What is the authenticity of the following narration of al-Mu’jam al-Kabir 2/289. Hadith number 2202 (Dar al-Bunyan al-Arabi)

that states that Jannah lies beneath the feet of the father and mother. The summary of the narration is that,

Once a Sahabi by the name of Jahimah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) came to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said O Nabi of Allah! I came to seek your advice as I intend to go out in the path of Allah. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) asked: ‘are your parents alive?’ Jahimah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) replied in the affirmative. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

‘stay with them as jannah lies beneath their feet.’


‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the narrators as reliable (thiqat)

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol.8 pg.138)


And Allah Ta’ala knows best
