Is the following Hadith reliable?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Join ties with those who cut off ties with you, give those who deprive you and forgive/ignore those who do injustice to you”


Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) and others have recorded this narration with various chains. Hafiz Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the narrators of one of the chains in Musnad Ahmad as reliable.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 148 and 158. Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 8 pg 188)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
