Hasten to do good deeds before seven things occur

Question

Is this narration authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Hasten to do good deeds before you are caught up by one of seven calamities awaiting you; Poverty which may impair your wisdom/ability to carry out good deeds, wealth which may mislead you, an ailment which may damage your health, old age which may harm your senses, a sudden death, the Dajjal (Antichrist), or Qiyamah which is indeed the hardest and most bitter.”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has graded the Hadith sound (hasanun gharib).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2306)
