The best and worst of people

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is this narration authentic?

A man said: “O Messenger of Allah! Which of the people are the best?” Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied: ‘He whose life is long and his deeds are good.’ He asked: ‘Then which of the people are the worst?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied: ‘He whose life is long and his deeds are evil.’”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Bakrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2330)
