Laravel 5.2 – Using Auth::check() not working in MIddleware

I am trying to make a middleware for different type of users in my Laravel 5.2 app. So, what is I am doing is making different middlewares for different users.

As far as I am knowing Auth::check() will not work without musing middleware web from here.

So, what I have done is-


Route::group(['middleware' => ['web','admin']], function ()
//suspend, activate, delete
Route::get('users', [
'uses' => '[email protected]',
'as' => 'users'

//Edit,activate,suspend, delete
Route::get('articles', [
'uses' => '[email protected]',
'as' => 'articles'



namespace AppHttpMiddleware;

use Closure;
use Auth;

class AdminMiddleware
* Handle an incoming request.
* @param IlluminateHttpRequest $request
* @param Closure $next
* @return mixed
public function handle($request, Closure $next)
if (Auth::check())
return Auth::user();
//return redirect('home');
return redirect('login');

//now return the valid request
return $next($request);


protected $routeMiddleware = [
'auth' => AppHttpMiddlewareAuthenticate::class,
'admin' => AppHttpMiddlewareAdminMiddleware::class,
'user' => AppHttpMiddlewareUserMiddleware::class,
'auth.basic' => IlluminateAuthMiddlewareAuthenticateWithBasicAuth::class,
'guest' => AppHttpMiddlewareRedirectIfAuthenticated::class,
'throttle' => IlluminateRoutingMiddlewareThrottleRequests::class,



namespace AppHttpControllers;

use IlluminateHttpRequest;

use AppHttpRequests;
use AppHttpControllersController;

class AdminController extends Controller
public function users()
return view('admin.users');

public function articles()
return view('admin.articles');

But I am getting this error-

enter image description here

when “return Auth::user();” called inside middleware, “return Auth::user();” is working in other place (view and controllers) but not working like old versions of Laravel.

Can anyone please help?
