Is this Hadith authentic?
Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) says:
“Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would spend several nights in a row hungry and they would not find anything for dinner. Most of their bread was made from barley [without any flour]”
Imams Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and other Muhaddithun have recorded this narration. Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2360, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3347)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
