Is this Hadith authentic?

“Islam is that your heart surrenders to Allah and that the Muslims are safe from [the harms of] your tongue and hand”



Imams ‘Abdur Razzaq and Ahmad (rahimahumallah) have recorded this as part of a longer narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Amr ibn ‘Abasah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 20107 and Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 114)


‘Allamah ‘Iraqi, ‘Allamah Mundhiri and Hafiz Haythami (rahimahumullah) have declared the narrators reliable.
