Is the following narration authentic?

Ummu Ayman (radiyallahu ‘anha) narrated: “When I was making Hijrah, I had no supplies or water with me, I was about to die of thirst. I was fasting, and when it was time to break my fast, I heard a noise above my head. So, I looked up, and saw a waterskin hanging above my head. I drank from it until I had quenched my thirst, and I was never thirsty again for the rest of my life.”



Imam Ibn Sa’d (rahimahullah) has recorded this incident. The narration is suitable to quote.

(Tabaqat Ibn Sa’d, vol. 8 pg. 179 and Sahih Ibnus Sakan; Refer: Al Isabah, vol. 14 pg. 292. Also see Talqihu Fuhumi Ahlil Athar of Ibnul Jawzi, pg. 228/9, Siyaru A’alamin Nubala, vol. 2 pg. 224 and Hayatus Sahabah, vol. 4 pg. 455)
