Is this narration authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Whoever feeds a sick person with whatever he desires, Allah Ta’ala will feed him from the fruits of Jannah”
Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Salman Al Farisi (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
Hafiz Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared one of the narrators a liar. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.
(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 6107, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 5 pg. 97)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
