Ambiya are buried where they pass away

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

“Allah does not take [the life of] a Prophet except at the location in which He wants him to be buried.” (Tirmidhi 1018)

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and has declared it weak (gharib).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1018)

 

The Hadith is corroborated as Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has also noted, and is suitable to quote.

(Also see: Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1628)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
