What is the reference for this narration? Can it be quoted

Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu) related that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“There are two habits which are never present in a believer; Miserliness and bad manners.”



Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith and has graded it weak.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1962)


The Hadith is suitable to quote for discouraging these traits, as is the rule with Hadiths of this nature.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
