Is this authentic?

سئل ابن عمر هل كان أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يضحكون؟ قال نعم، والإيمان في قلوبهم أعظم من الجبال

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar was asked, “Would the companions of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) laugh? He replied, ‘Yes and the Iman in their hearts was greater than mountains”



This Hadith is recorded in Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq with a reliable chain.
