Those upon whom Jahannam is forbidden

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Should I inform you about those whom Jahannam is forbidden to burn or who is forbidden for Jahannam? The fire is forbidden to touch every person who is amicable, soft-spoken, and easy to deal with”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and has declared the Hadith sound (hasan). Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has declared this narration authentic.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2488 and Sahih Ibn Hibban, Al Ihsan, Hadith: 470)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
