Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) divorced Hafsah (radiyallahu ‘anha) but took her back

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is this Hadith authentic?

Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said that “Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) divorced Hafsah (radiyallahu ‘anha) but then remarried her.”

 

Answer

Imams Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Ibn Hibban and Hakim (rahimahumullah) have recorded this narration.

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 2277, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 2016, Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 4275, Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 2 pg. 197)

 

Imams Ibn Hibban and Hakim (rahimahumallah) have declared the Hadith authentic. ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) concurs. Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound (hasan).

(Fathul Bari, under Hadith: 5191, vol. 9 pg. 286)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
