Do not praise a person in his presence

Is this narration authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Beware of praising one another [in each others presence] for it is slaughtering [as this will lead to pride and vanity]”


Imams Ibn Majah, Ahmad, Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah and other Muhaddithun have recorded this Hadith.

‘Allamah Busiri (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound (hasan).

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 3743, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 93, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 26786, Zawaid Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1206)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
