Is this Hadith reliable?

عن أنس قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: إن الله لينادي يوم القيامة أين جيراني أين جيراني قال: فتقول الملائكة ربنا ومن ينبغي أن يجاورك فيقول أين عمار المساجد



Imam Harith (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his Musnad on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a suitable chain.

The Hadith may be quoted.

(Musnadul Harith; Bughyatul Bahith, Hadith: 126. Also see: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pg. 23)



Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“On the Day of Qiyamah, Allah Ta’ala will announce ‘Where are my neighbours, where are my neighbours?’. The Angels will say, ‘O Allah, Who [can have the privilege] of being beside You?’ Allah Ta’ala will then say, Where are those who would frequent the Masjids?’


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
