Question

Salam aleikum there is a hadith that goes like this The People who were not tested in this dunya Will wish their skins were cut up when they see the rewards of those who were tested 5484 al jami Is this a saheeh hadith ?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

This Hadeeth was reported by at-Tirmithi in al-Jaami’ and by other scholars of Hadeeth.

At-Tirmithi said: “It is a Ghareeb Hadeeth.

The scholars differed in opinion concerning the ruling on it. Shu'ayb al-Arna’oot classified its chain of narrators as weak when reviewing the book Jaami’ At-Tirmithi. However, al-Albaani classified it as Hassan due to the existence of other Ahadeeth with the same meaning (by other narrators) in his book as-Silsilah as-Saheehah and his other books.

Ath-thiyaa’ al-Maqdissi classified it as Saheeh. This is mentioned by as-Suyooti in al-La-aali al-Masnoo’ah.

Ghareeb Hadeeth: Means a Hadeeth narrated by only one narrator at any stage of its chain of narrators.

Allah knows best.
