This question discusses the idea that certain practices (e.g., saying ashrei yoshvei [Tehilim 145] three times a day) guarantees a place in olam haba.

One common saying is that facilitating 3 shidduchim (matches between husband and wife) guarantees a place in olam haba?

It is often heard but I didn’t find any sources supporting it.
Any validity to this saying or is it folklore?


Both Rabbi Yuval Sherlo and Rabbi Shelomo Aviner do not know of a source for this popular idea, so I think it is safe to say that there isn't one. Of course, it is a great deed (some say it can be considered as going in Hashem's ways, as the midrash tells us that He sits up above and mezaveg zivugim).
