Whoever loves the Sahabah, loves them due to the love he has for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

Question

Please provide the reference of the Hadith which we often hear in the second khutbah of Jumu’ah, “If you love them (Sahabah radiyallahu ‘anhum), it is because of your love for me, and if you dislike them, it is because of your dislike for me”

 

Answer

This is part of a longer narration recorded by Imam Tirmidhi, Imam Ibn Hibban and other Muhaddithun on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mughaffal (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3862 , Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 7256)
