Is the following narration authentic?

Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated regarding’when Khubayb bin ‘Udayy (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was a prisoner of the Quraysh in Makkah:

“By Allah, one day, I saw him eating from a bunch of grapes in his hand while he was locked in a steel cage, and there were no crops growing in Makkah at the time.”

[Sahih Bukhari and Siyaru A’alamin Nubala]



This narration is recorded in Sahih Bukhari, like you have cited in your query. Therefore there is no need to question its authenticity.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3045)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
