Number of Women in Jannah

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

I entered Jannah and saw that most of its dwellers were women.

Narrated by al-Bayhaqi in al-Ba’th wal-Nushur and Ibn ‘Asakir in Tarikh Dimashq.

 

Answer

This Hadith is declared weak (da’if) by ‘Allamah Zurqani (rahimahullah), but is suitable for this purpose as it is supported by other narrations too.

(Mukhtasarul Maqasid, Hadith: 453. Also see: Al-Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 483 and Kashful Khafa, Hadith: 1288)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
