A narration stating that ‘Ulama will be massacred before Qiyamah

Question

What is status of following narration?

يأتي على الناس زمان يقتل فيه العلماء كما يقتل الكلاب فيا ليت العلماء في ذلك الزمان تحامقوا

 

Answer

This narration is recorded in Musnadul Firdaws, on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 8671)

 

In addition to this chain being weak (due to tadlis), I could not find the biographies of many of the narrators in this chain to ascertain their reliability or lack thereof.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
