Sheep are among the animals of Jannah


Is this Hadith reliable?

صَلّوا في مراح الغنم وامسحوا رغامها فإنّها من دواب الجنّة



Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a suitable chain. Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has also recorded a similar narration which supports the Hadith in question.

(As Sunanul Kubra, vol. 2 pg. 449, Tarikh Baghdad, vol. 8 pg. 466. Also see: Al Mudawi, Hadith: 2104 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pg. 25/26)



Perform Salah [when the time sets in] in the sheep pen [if you are forced to] and wipe off the dust/mucus from it for it is from the animals of Jannah.

(Refer: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 5020)
