Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said regarding Surah Fatihah:
“By the One in Whose Hand is my soul! The like of it has neither been revealed in the Tawrah, nor the Injil nor the Zabur, nor in the Furqan [Quran].”
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih)
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2875)
Also see: Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 4474, 4703
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
