Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and the Sahabah would engage in light-hearted conversation after Fajr

Question

Is this Hadith reliable?

“Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would sit with the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) after Fajr Salah until sunrise. They would sometimes discuss the days of jahiliyyah [ignorance]. They would laugh and Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would smile”

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir ibn Samurah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2322)
