What is authenticity of following narration?
من ساء خلقه من الرقيق والدواب والصبيان، فاقرءوا في أذنيه: أفغير دين الله يبغون
Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 64)
However, the chain consists of two extremely weak narrators.
(Lisanul Mizan, vol. 3 pg. 258 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 8 pg. 25)
If the character/mannerisms of a slave, animal or child is evil, then recite into their ears the verse ‘Is it other than the Din of Allah that you desire’ [Surah Aalu ‘Imran, Verse: 83].
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
