Is this Hadith authentic:
‘Imran ibn Husayn (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:
“The best of people are my generation, then those who follow them. Then, after them a people will come who increase in fatness, loving fatness. They will give testimony before they are even asked for it.”
This Hadith is also recorded -with very slight variation- by Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) in his Sahih, and is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2651. Also see Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2221 and 2222)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
