Nabi (S) loved the color green

Fatwaa ID: 431

Quick Q
Is it established that Nabi ﷺ favorite color was green, due to it being the color of Jannah?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

At the outset, we wish to advise that just because a question looks small to you, it does not necessarily mean that it is a “quick” question. At times, the scholars go through many pages from dozens of books just to answer that “quick” question. Any answer that we give, we have to account for it to Allaah Ta’aala as we are signing on his behalf.
Nevertheless, I was unable to find any hadith suggesting that the reason Nabi (S) loved green was for the said reason. However, some of the commentators have suggested that this may have been one of the reasons. Irrespective, green is a blessed color.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
