‘Aaishah’s (radiyallahu ‘anha) disapproval of backgammon

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) heard that some people who were living on her property had a backgammon set, so she sent word to them saying: ‘If you do not throw it out, I will throw you out of my property. And she denounced them for that. (Al Adabul Mufrad)

 

Answer

Yes, it is. The narration is recorded in Muwatta Imam Malik and Al Adabul Mufrad of Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah).

(Muwatta Imam Malik: 2753, Al Adabul Mufrad: 1274)
