Is this narration authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“How good is the believer’s meal of dates at the time of sehri”
Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic (sahih).
(Sunan Abu Dawud, Hadith: 2345 and Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 3475)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
