Is this narration reliable?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The businessmen will be raised up on the Day of Resurrection sinful, except those who feared Allah, were honest [refrained from fraud and embezzlement] and were truthful”



Imams Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Rifa’ah ibn Rafi’ (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Tirmidhi and Imam Ibn Hibban have declared the Hadith authentic.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1210, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 2146, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 4910)
