Is the following correct to quote as the words of our Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam)

 من بات كلا من طلب الحلال بات مغفورا له؟



This Hadith is recorded in Al-Mu’jamul Awsat of Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah)

(see Majma’ul Bahrayn, Hadith: 1924)

‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahullah) commented on the chain by saying: ‘It has some weakness’

(Takhrijul Ihya, Hadith: 1660, also see Targhib, vol. 2 pg. 524)

This Hadith is suitable to quote for the virtue of earning a halal livelihood.


Hereunder is the Translation for the benefit of all:

Whoever spends the night tired from earning a halal livelihood, does so while being forgiven.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
