Imparting knowledge is among the best forms of Sadaqah

Question

Is this Hadith authenitc?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“There is no charity which people spend that is equal [in reward] than the imparting of knowledge”

 

Answer

Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Samurah ibn Jundub (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a weak chain.

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 6964. Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 1 pg. 166 and Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 5 pg. 217, number: 9428. Also see: Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 119)

 

The Hadith is suitable to quote for encouraging imparting knowledge, as is the case with Hadiths of this nature.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
