Is this a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) or the statement of a Sahabi?
“How hastily people criticise and fault that about which they know little about”
Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this as the statement of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha). Some Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) had objected to an issue regarding Janazah Salah which prompted Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) to say this.
(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 973)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
