Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Whoever acquires haram (unlawful) wealth and then gives charity from it, he will not be rewarded and will be sinful.”
Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith authentic (sahih).
(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 3367)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
