Is this Hadith correct?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“He who makes peace/reconciles between people by [making up] good information or saying good things, is not a liar”



Yes. Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyidah Ummu Kulthum bint ‘Uqbah (radiyallahu ‘anha).

The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2692, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2605)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
