The humiliation of debts

Is this narration authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

‘When Allah wishes to humiliate a person in this world, he places him in debt’


Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). However, Hafiz Dhahabi and ‘Allamah Mundhiri (rahimahumallah) have pointed out a very weak narrator in this chain. The Hadith should not be quoted.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 24. Refer: Talkhisul Mustadrak and Targhib, vol. 2 pg. 596)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
