Best Dhikr & Best Sustenance

Question

What is the authenticity of the following Hadith?

The Messenger of Allah (may peace and blessings be upon him) said:

‘The best Dhikr is that which is done quietly and the best provision (livelihood) is that which is sufficient.’

 

Answer

This Hadith is suitable to quote.

(Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 35518 & Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 809)

Note: Despite the break in the chain, there is sufficient support for the meaning, therefore Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has authenticated it.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
