Is this Hadith authentic?
“The ordinary inmate of paradise.. for him there will be seventy-two partners from Hurul ‘In besides his spouses from (the women of) this world.”
(Musnad Ahmad, Hadith 10874, Classified as Hasan by Ahmad Shakir)
This part of the Hadith is well supported by other narrations and can therefore be graded as sound (hasan).
(See: Fathul Bari, Hadith: 3245 for the other supports)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
