“Whoever is afflicted with poverty and refers it to the people, his poverty will not be brought to an end…”

Question

What is the status of the hadeeth (prophetic narration), “Whoever is afflicted with poverty and refers it to the people, his poverty will not be brought to an end, but whoever refers it to Allah, Allah will grant him provision, sooner or later.”

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

The hadeeth was narrated by al-Tirmidhi (2326) and Abu Dawood (1645). 

It was classed as saheeh (authentic) by al-Tirmidhi and al-Hakim (1/566), and al-Dhahabi agreed with him.
