The characteristics of the inhabitants of Jannah and Jahannam

Question

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

Sayyiduna Harithah ibn Wahb (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates, I heard Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saying:

“Should I not inform you of the people of Jannah? Every weak person who is considered [by people] to be weak and humble. If such a person were to take an oath, Allah would fulfil it. Shall I tell you who are the people of Jahannam? Every harsh, haughty and arrogant person.’

 

Answer

Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 4918, 6071, 6657 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2853)
