Caution against looking down and disdaining fellow Muslims

Question

Is the following Hadith authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“It is enough to regard a person evil that he looks down upon his Muslim brother”

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith in his Sahih, as part of a longer narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2564)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
