Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was the most compassionate towards his family

Question

Could you verify this narration?

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “I never saw anyone who was more compassionate towards his family than Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). His son Ibrahim was in the care of a wet nurse in the hills around Madinah. He would go there, and we would go with him. He would enter the house, pick up his son, kiss him and then return. The house would be filled with smoke as the foster father was a blacksmith.

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his Sahih. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2316)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
