What is the authenticity of the following narration?

“‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) liked to make du’a at the time of Maghrib.”

I heard this in a lecture and It was mentioned that it is in Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah



This narration is recorded Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah with a weak chain.

‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) would like to make du’a at the time of Maghrib Adhan and he said, “This is a time wherein du’a is accepted.”

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 8554. Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 2 pg. 486, number: 4567 and footnotes of Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah -hafizahullah- on Musannaf)


However, the narration is suitable to quote as is the rule with Hadiths of this nature. Also see here


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
