Jannah desires three people

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Indeed, Jannah desires three [people]; ‘Ali, ‘Ammar, and Salman (radiyallahu ‘anhum).”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3797)

 

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith sound (hasanun gharib). Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs.
