Ibn ’Umar (RAA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“He who imitates any people (in their actions) is considered to be one of them.” Related by Abu Dawud and Ibn Hibban graded it as Sahih.
وَعَنِ اِبْنِ عُمَرَ ‏-رَضِيَ اَللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا‏- قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اَللَّهِ ‏- صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏-{ مَنْ تَشَبَّهَ بِقَوْمٍ, فَهُوَ مِنْهُمْ } أَخْرَجَهُ أَبُو دَاوُدَ, وَصَحَّحَهُ اِبْنُ حِبَّانَ.‏ (1930)‏ .‏
