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”
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.
