A Believer has four enemies

Is this authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“A Believer has four enemies; A Believer who is jealous of him, a hypocrite who hates him, Shaytan to mislead him and a disbeliever who fights him”


This narration is recorded in Musnadul Firdaws with an extremely weak chain.

(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 4961, ‘Ilmiyyah edition. Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 4 pg. 307-309, number: 3908 and Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 7352. Also see, Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 2720)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
