Do not curse the wind for it is merely doing as ordered

Question

Is the following narration reliable?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrated that a man cursed the wind in the presence of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), so Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Do not curse the wind, for it is merely doing as ordered, and whoever curses something undeservingly, then the curse returns upon him.”

 

Answer

Imams Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration. Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1978, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4872, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 5745)
