Humans and the Jinn will testify in favour of the Muadhin

Question

What is the level of authenticity of this Hadith?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“No jinn or man or anything within range hears the voice of the muadhin, except that they will bear witness in favour of the Muadhin on the Day of Resurrection”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 609, 3296, 7548)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
