Hadith On The Importance Of Loving The Sahabah


Is this Hadith sahih?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mughaffal [radiyallahu ‘anhu] narrates that the Messenger of Allah said:

“Allah, Allah! Fear Him with regard to my Companions! Do not make them targets after me. Whoever loves them loves them with his love for me; and whoever hates them hates them with his hatred for me. Whoever bears enmity for them bears enmity for me; and whoever bears enmity for me, bears enmity for Allah. Whoever bears enmity for Allah is about to be seized”



This Hadith has been declared sound (hasan gharib) by Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) and authentic (sahih) by Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah).
