I would like to know if the Hadith narrator An Nu’man ibn Ma’bad is reliable?



Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded a Hadith of An Nu’man ibn Ma’bad.

Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has declared him reliable (thiqah).

(Kitabuth Thiqat of Imam Ibn Hibban, vol. 7 pg. 530. Also see: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 5 pg. 29, number: 8587, Tahdhibul Kamal, vol. 29 pg. 458, number: 6447 and Taqribut Tahdhib: 7161)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
