The Hadith “Elderly women do not enter Jannah”


O Shaykh, may Allah preserve you.

What’s the level of authenticity of the hadith which mentions that the Prophet ﷺ said to an elderly lady:

(لا يدخل الجنة عجوز)

“Elderly women do not enter Jannah”

Whereby she cried…until the end of the hadith.


Shaykh Al-Albāni placed it in “Silsilah As-Sahīhah”.

But the different narrations mentioned do not live up to strengthening each other due to the severity of their weakness, and Allah knows best.

Shaykh Abu Hatim Yusuf Al-‘Inaabi Al-Jazaa’iree – may Allah preserve him.
