Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would not leave his home for Salah until he made miswak”
Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Zayd ibn Khalid Al Juhani (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 5261)
‘Allamah Mundhiri (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound (bi isnadin la ba’sa bihi) and ‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) states ‘The narrators have been declared credible’
(Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 166, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pg. 99)
See the reward for offering Salah after using the miswak here.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
