What is the authenticity of the following narration?

Sayyiduna ‘Ubadah ibn Samit (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“He who does not respect our elders, and does not have mercy on our children, and does not acknowledge the rights our scholars, is not of my Ummah.”


Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) and others have recorded this narration. Hafiz Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the narration as sound (hasan)

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 323. Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 1 pg. 127)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
