The hadeeth “Whoever is content with a little provision from Allaah…”

The hadeeth “Whoever is content with a little provision from Allaah…”

How sound is the hadeeth, “Whoever is content with a little provision from Allaah, Allaah will be content with a little of righteous deeds from him”?

 

Praise be to Allaah.This hadeeth was narrated by al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ab al-Eemaan (7/204).

Its isnaad includes Ishaaq ibn Muhammad al-Farawi, who was classed as da’eef by al-Nasaa’i, Abu Dawood and al-Daaraqutni.

See Meezaan al-I’tidaal, 1/351; Tahdheeb al-Tahdheeb, 1/217.

It was also classed as da’eef by al-‘Iraaqi in Takhreej al-Ihyaa’, 4/334.
