One who reconciles between people by making up information is not a liar

Question

Is this Hadith correct?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“He who makes peace/reconciles between people by [making up] good information or saying good things, is not a liar”

 

Answer

Yes. Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyidah Ummu Kulthum bint ‘Uqbah (radiyallahu ‘anha).

The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2692, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2605)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
