Staying apart from one’s brother in Islam for longer than a year

Is this narration authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever stays apart from his brother [in Islam] for a year, it is as if he has shed his blood”

 

Answer

Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Khirash As Sulami/Al Aslami, Hadrad ibn Abi Hadrad (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4879)

 

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic and ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) concurs.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 4 pg. 163)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
