Is this Hadith authentic
Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) narrates, I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saying:
“Verily a Mu’min by virtue of his good conduct, acquires the rank of one who fasts and stands in Salah [during the night].”
Imams Abu Dawud and Ahmad (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith.
(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4765, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 6 pg. 133 and pg. 187)
Imam Ibn Hibban and Imam Hakim (rahimahumallah) have declared the Hadith authentic. ‘Allamah Dhahabi concurs.
(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 480, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 60)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
