The true martyr according to Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu)

Question

Could you provide the reference of this narration:

“The true martyr is he who although he passes away on his bed, still enters Jannah” [i.e. He passes away on his bed, but enters Jannah to to having all his sins forgiven]

 

Answer

Imam ‘Abdur Razzaq (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and not as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

The narration is suitable to quote as reported.

(Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 9568)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
