Is this Hadith authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“The Hour [Qiyamah] will certainly come, while two men will be spreading out a garment between them, but they will not be able to complete their transaction or fold up the garment. The Hour will come when a man will be carrying the milk of his camel but he will not be able to drink it. The Hour will come while someone is mending his basin/trough and will not be able to bring [his animals] to drink from it and the Hour will come when a man will raise a morsel of food to his mouth but he will not be able to eat it.”
Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has also recorded it with slight variation in the wording. The narration is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6506 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2954)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
