Kindly inform me if there is a Hadith which says:

“Anyone whose soul leaves his body [i.e. passes away] and he is free of three things, will enter Jannah; Pride/arrogance, stealing from the spoils of war, and debt.”



Yes this is a Hadith recorded by Imam Ibn Majah and Imam Ahmad (rahimahumallah) on the authority of Sayyiduna Thawban (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 2412, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 276)


Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic.

(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 198. Also see: Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1573)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
