What is the authenticity of this narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whoever is not pleased with the decision of Allah and does not accept His decree should seek another Deity besides Allah”



Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Al Mu’jamus Awsat, Hadith: 8366)


‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) states, “[There is a narrator] in this chain who has been declared credible by Imam Yahya ibn Ma’in and declared weak by others. The rest of the narrators are reliable.”

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 7 pg. 207)


Therefore, as stated in our previous answer, the Hadith is suitable to quote.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
