Raising the voice when reciting the Talbiyah


Is this Hadith authentic?

Khallad ibn Saib (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that his father said, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Jibril came to me and instructed me to order my companions that they should raise their voices when reciting the talbiyah [Reciting Labbayk in Hajj/’Umrah]”



Imams Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Ahmad, Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah and other Muhaddithun have recorded this Hadith.
