‘Do not make your homes like graveyards’

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Don’t make your houses like graveyards, for the Shaytan flees from a house in which Surah al-Baqarah is read”

 

Answer

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

The narration is therefore authentic.
