Kindly advise if the following narration is authentic:
Sayyiduna Suhayb (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“There is Barakah (blessings) in three things, Installment Sales, Muqaradah (Profit Sharing Investments), Mixing wheat with barley for domestic use and not for re-selling”
Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has declared this Hadith a fabrication. Hafiz Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has declared the text of this narration baseless (batil). The Hadith should therefore not be quoted.
(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 2289. Refer: Kitabud Du’afa of Imam ‘Uqayli, vol. 4 pg. 126, Tahdhibul Kamal, vol. 29 pg. 365 -6409-, Lisanul Mizan, vol. 6 pg. 72 -5587- and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 195)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
