Is this a Hadith?
“Fear of people should not prevent a man from speaking the truth, if he knows it”
Yes. This is a Hadith recorded in Sunan Tirmidhi and Sunan Ibn Majah on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2191 as part of a longer narration, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4007)
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
