Death in relation to what is to come after death will seem easy and insignificant

Question

Kindly inform me if this is the words of a Hadith?

“Death in relation to what is after is just like a headbutt of a goat”

 

Answer

Yes. This is a Hadith recorded in Al Mu’jamul Awsat of Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Death in relation to what is to come after is merely like the headbutt of a goat.”

(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 8290)

 

‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) states, “There are some narrators in this chain whose [credibility] I am unaware of.” (وفيه جماعة لم أعرفهم)

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 334)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
