The Bedouin who pulled Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) garment

Question

What is the authenticity of the Hadith wherein a Bedouin once pulled Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) roughly by his coat, leaving traces on his neck and said to him: “Load these two camels of mine, for you do not give me anything from your property or from your father’s property!”

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) gently requested the Bedouin to release him. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) smiled and ordered someone to give him a camel load of barley and a camel load of dates.

 

Answer

This narration is recorded in several Hadith collections, including Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abi Dawud with variations in the wording. The incident is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5809, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1057, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4742, Sunan Nasai, Hadith: 6952)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
