‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was very generous and serious after the demise of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

Question

Is this narration reliable?

Narrated Aslam [the freed slave of ‘Umar radiyallahu ‘anhu], ‘Ibn Umar asked me about some matters concerning ‘Umar’. Aslam said: ‘Since Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) passed away, I have never seen anybody more serious and generous than ‘Umar ibn Al Khattab, right until he passed away.’

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith in his Sahih. The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3687)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
