Passing away in salaah

Q: Is it true that if a person passes away in salaah they go straight to jannah and if so, is there any hadith provided?

A: We have not come across any clear hadith to this effect. However, it is hoped that the person will be forgiven and be granted jannah as he passed away in a good condition and a mubaarak state while remembering Allah Ta'ala.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
