12935: The hadeethHadeeth: “Whoever is content with a little provision from Allaah…”

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

Praise be to Allah.

This hadeeth was narrated by al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ab al-Eeman (7/204). 

Its isnad (chain of narrators) includes Ishaq ibn Muhammad al-Farawi, who was classed as da’eef by al-Nasai, Abu Dawood and al-Daraqutni. 

See Meezan al-I’tidal, 1/351; Tahtheeb al-Tahrheeb, 1/217. 

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