Is this Hadith authentic?
Sayyiduna ‘Imran ibn Husayn narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “A group of people will come out of Jahannam through the intercession of Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and enter Jannah; they will be called the Jahannamiyyin (people who were in Jahannam).”
Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith. The Hadith is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6566. Also see, Hadith: 6559)
This Hadith proves that Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) will indeed intercede on behalf of such people.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
