Perfect praise to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is no other worthy worship than Allah and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) is his slave and his messenger.

Several Ahadith have been mentioned about the number of servants that every person of the people of paradise will have. Some of them claim that they number ten thousand.

Anas ibn Maalik, may Allah be pleased with him, said,

“I heard the Prophet sallallaahu` alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) saying,”

The least of all the inhabitants of Paradise will be he whose ten thousand servants will be in his place. service and call. Each servant will have two trays in his hand: one silver and the other gold. Each tray will have a color that the other does not have. He will eat the last tray as he ate the first. The delicious taste he will enjoy on the last platter will be completely different from the one he enjoyed on the first platter. He will then go out (of the body) like sweat of the musk and a musk burp. They will not urinate, defecate, or blow their nose. They will be brothers on thrones facing each other.

This hadeeth was reported by At-Tabaraani and others, and Al-Albaani classified it as weak in As-Silsilah Adh-Dha’eefah (No. 5305).

We have not encountered any authentic hadith specifying this number; However, Al-Bayhaqi reported in his book “Al-Ba’th wan-Nushoor” that “Abdullaah ibn” Amr said:

“The least of all the inhabitants of Paradise will be the one that a thousand servants will serve and call. Each servant will have a different task than the other. “Then he recited this verse (which means):

{When you see them, you will find them [as beautiful as] scattered pearls.} [Quran 76:19]


Although this narration is a Mawqoof Hadeeth (a declaration of a companion), it nonetheless retains the decision of a Marfoo ‘Hadeeth (a narration directly attributed to the Prophet, sallallaahu’ alayhi wasallam), as stated by Al-Hafith Al-Iraki in his book Takhreej Al-Ihyaa ‘. This is because there is no place for opinion on this subject (since it speaks of an unknown matter), and Al-Albaani has classified the authentic in the Sahih At-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (No. 3705), then he said that it was also reported by Al-Hussayn Al-Maroozi and Ibn Jareer At-Tabari with an authentic chain of narrators of Ibn ‘Amru in the form of Mawqoof narrative.

Allah knows best.
