Title: Story of a peacock being banished from Jannah because of its boastfulness


As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakah tu.

I pray that Allaah Ta'ala grants Maulana/Mufti the best of health.

Maulana/Mufti, a friend told me that she once heard a story of a peacock being banished from Jannah because of its boastfulness.

Is there any authentic narrations of this?

JazakAllaah Khayr




In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

To the best of our knowledge there is no authentic narration on this.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
