Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
How sound is the hadeeth, “Whoever is content with little provision from Allah, Allah will be content with little of righteous deeds from him”?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allah.
This hadeeth was narrated by al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ab al-Eeman (7/204).
Its isnad (chain of narrators) includes Ishaq ibn Muhammad al-Farawi, who was classed as da’eef by al-Nasai, Abu Dawood and al-Daraqutni.
See Meezan al-I’tidal, 1/351; Tahtheeb al-Tahrheeb, 1/217.
It was also classed as da’eef by al-‘Iraqi in Takhreej al-Ihya, 4/334.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
