Meeting for the sake of Allah

Question

Is the following narration reliable?

 عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ ، قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : أُخْبِرُكُمْ بِرِجَالِكُمْ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ : النَّبِيُّ فِي الْجَنَّةِ ، وَالصِّدِّيقُ فِي الْجَنَّةِ ، وَالشَّهِيدُ فِي الْجَنَّةِ ، وَالرَّجُلُ يَزُورُ أَخَاهُ فِي نَاحِيَةِ الْمِصْرِ لا يَزُورُهُ إِلا لِلَّهِ فِي الْجَنَّة ، وَنِسَاؤُكُمْ فِي الْجَنَّةِ : الْوَدُودُ الْوَلُودُ ، الَّتِي إِذَا غَضِبَ أَوْ غَضِبَتْ جَاءَتْ حَتَّى تَضَعَ يَدَهَا فِي يَدِ زَوْجِهَا ، ثُمَّ تَقُولُ : لا أَذُوقُ غُمْضًا حَتَّى تَرْضَى

 

Answer

Translation

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“I will inform you with regards to your males in Jannah: the Ambiya will be in Jannah, the truthful ones (Siddiqin) will be in Jannah, the martyrs will be in Jannah, that man who visits his brother in the outskirts of the town with no intention other than for the pleasure of Allah will be in Jannah, and with regards to your womenfolk in Jannah: An affectionate and fertile woman, that woman who when anger is shown to or anger overcomes her, she comes to hold the hand of her spouse, and then says: I will not sleep until you are happy.”

 

Authenticity

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith with two chains, one of them being extremely weak. However due to the support of the second chain, as well as support from the versions of other Sahabah (rahimahullah) with very similar wordings, this Hadith acquires enough strength and can be considered strong. One may quote it.

(Al-Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 12467 and 12468, also see Targhib, Hadith: 2899 and Ibn Hajar in Mukhtasar Zawaid Bazzar, Hadith: 1623)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
