Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “How can I enjoy life [and be at ease] when the [angel] entrusted with the Horn has placed it to his mouth and has lent his ear attentively, waiting for the order to blow it. This statement seemed to bear heavily upon the Sahabah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) so he said to them: ‘Say: Hasbunallahu wa ni’mal wakil– Allah is sufficient for us! The Most Excellent is He in Whom we trust and upon Allah we rely.
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2431)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
