Is this narration reliable?
The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“He who goes forth in the search of knowledge is considered to be in the path of Allah until he returns”
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith sound (hasanun gharib).
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2647)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
