Is this narration authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Beware of praising one another [in each others presence] for it is slaughtering [as this will lead to pride and vanity]”
Imams Ibn Majah, Ahmad, Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah and other Muhaddithun have recorded this Hadith.
‘Allamah Busiri (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound (hasan).
(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3743, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 93, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 26786, Zawaid Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1206)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
