Sheep are a blessing

Question

Is this narration correct?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Goats/Sheep are a blessing”

 

Answer

Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahullah) has recorded these words as part of a longer narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Urwah Al Bariqi (radiyallahu ‘anhu). ‘Allamah Busiri (rahimahullah) has declared the chain authentic.

Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahullah) has also recorded the following narration on the authority of Sayyidatuna Ummu Hani (radiyallahu ‘anha):

‘Keep sheep/goats, for there is certainly barakah (blessings) in them.’
