One description of the latter generation

Question

Is this Hadith authentic:

‘Imran ibn Husayn (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“The best of people are my generation, then those who follow them. Then, after them a people will come who increase in fatness, loving fatness. They will give testimony before they are even asked for it.”

(Jami’ Tirmidhi)

 

Answer

This Hadith is also recorded -with very slight variation- by Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) in his Sahih, and is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2651. Also see Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2221 and 2222)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
