What is the authenticity of this?
Sayyiduna Kaladah ibn Hambal (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said:
“I entered upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) without greeting or seeking permission. He said, ‘Go back and say: ‘As Salamu ‘alaykum, may I come in?'”
Imams Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith sound (hasan)
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2710, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 5133)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
