How authentic is this Hadith?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“How excellent a gift/act of charity is [to lend someone] the she-camel which has recently given birth and which gives profuse milk, and [to lend] the sheep which gives profuse milk, a bowl in the morning and another in the evening.”
Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2629)
