«إذا أثنى عليك جيرانك أنك محسن فأنت محسن وإذا أثنى عليك جيرانك أنك مسيء فأنت مسيء» .
(صحيح) … [ابن عساكر] عن ابن مسعود. المشكاة 4988: حم, هـ, حب, ك, طب)

 It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

 “If your neighbor praises you (and says) that you are virtuous, then you are indeed virtuous, and if he says that you are bad, then indeed you are bad”. 

This hadith was narrated by Ibn Asakir from the words of Ibn Mas’ud.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Saheeh al-jami ‘as-sagyir 277.
