Is this narration authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The Hour will not be established until people fornicate with each other in the road as if they were donkeys”



This narration has been recorded in several Hadith collections including Sahih Ibn Hibban and Musnad Bazzar, on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic. Hafiz Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared the narrators of Imam Bazzar reliable.

(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 6767, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 7 pg. 327)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
