The home which has no dates is like a house that has no food

Question 

Is this Hadith suitable to quote?

بيت لا تمر فيه كالبيت لا طعام فيه

 

Answer

Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith. Sayyidah Salma (radiyallahu ‘anha) reported that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “A house in which there are no dates, is like a house that has no food.”

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3325)

 

The narration is well corroborated by authentic Hadiths in Sahih Muslim and is suitable to quote. See here.

(Refer: Zawaid Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1091. Also see: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 3165)

 

See the explanation here.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
