Is this Hadith authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“…There is no piece of land in this entire world more beloved to me that I be buried in [than Madinah Munawwarah]”



Imam Malik (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration mursalan (a chain with an omission after the Tabi’i).

(Muwatta Imam Malik, Hadith: 1330)


The Hadith is suitable to quote.

(Refer: At Tamhid, vol. 10 pg. 148)



And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
