Jannah lies beneath the feet of your mother

Question

Is the Hadith ‘Paradise lies at the foot of your mother’ sahih?

Answer

Imam Nasai (rahimahullah) has authentically recorded a Hadith, in which a Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) told a Sahabi (radiyallahu’anhu):

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

فَالْزَمْها فاِنَّ الجنّةَ تَحْتَ رِجْلَيْها

(Sunan Nasai, Hadith: 3104, Musnad Ahmad, vol.3 pg. 429, Mushkilul Athar, Hadith: 2132, Declared authentic -sahih- by Imams Hakim and Dhahabi (rahimahullah); Mustdarak Hakim, vol.4 pg.151. Also see Al-Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 373 & Hukmul ‘amal bil Hadithid Da’if of Shaykh ‘Awwamah, pg.97 & 106)

Note: When quoting the Arabic, it’s better to quote these words.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
