Is this Hadith authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Whoever meets his Muslim brother and makes him happy with something that Allah likes, Allah will make him happy on the Day of Qiyamah.”
Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
(Al Mu’jamus Saghir, Hadith: 1178)
‘Allamah Mundhiri (rahimahullah) and ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) have declared the chain sound (hasan).
(Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 394, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 8 pg. 194)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
