Is this Hadith sahih?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is reported to have said, “What an excellent graveyard this is” [referring to the graveyard of Makkah Mukarramah]”
Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) with an acceptable chain.
(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 1 pg. 367. Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 3 pg. 297)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
