Is this Hadith strong enough to quote?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“By Him in Whose hand is my soul, if the heavens and the earth and all that are in them and everything that is in between were brought and placed in one pan of the Balance, and the witnessing that there is no god but Allah were placed in the other, the latter would outweigh the former.”
Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded these words on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).
(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 13024, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 2 pg. 323)
(Also see: Musnad Ahmad, vol. 2 pg. 186 and vol. 2 pg. 225, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 49, Targhib, vol. 2 pg. 415 and pg. 417)
The Hadith in question is suitable to quote.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
