Question

There is a narration in Sahih ibn Hibban, wherein Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) states:

كنا إذا فقدنا الإنسان في صلاة الصبح والعشاء أسأنا به الظن

Translation: If we (The Sahabah) did not see someone for Fajr and ‘Isha Salah, we would have evil thoughts [that they are hypocrites]

Please give the exact number and authenticity.
