The Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) would cry and tremble when they heard Quran


Is this Hadith authentic?

‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Urwah ibn Zubayr said: “I asked my grandmother Asma (radiyallahu ‘anha), ‘What was the condition of the Sahabah when they would hear Quran? She replied, ‘Their eyes teared and their skins trembled just as Allah has described them [in the Quran]'”



This narration is recorded in Sunan Sa’id ibn Mansur with a reliable chain. Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has also recorded this narration with the same chain.

(Sunan Sa’id ibn Mansur, Hadith: 95, Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 1900. Also see: Tafsir Baghawi; Ma’alimut Tanzil and Ad Durrul Manthur, Surah Zumar, Verse: 23)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
