Quran

Hadith

Islamic Text

Yes, it is in Bukhari.

عَائِشَةَ، حَدَّثَتْنِي: أَنَّهَا سَمِعَتِ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ: «إِنَّ هَذِهِ الحَبَّةَ السَّوْدَاءَ شِفَاءٌ مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ، إِلَّا مِنَ السَّامِ» قُلْتُ: وَمَا السَّامُ؟ قَالَ: المَوْتُ

(Sayidah) Aishah  narrated that the Prophet said, ‘Indeed this black seed is a cure for every illness, except for al-Saam.’ I (Aishah) said, ‘What is al-Saam?’ He said, ‘Death.’ (Sahih al-Bukhari, 5687).

This blessed Hadith is narrated in Bukhari and Muslim multiple times with slightly variant wording. Hadith that have complete chains of narration in Bukhari and Muslim are Sahih.

وأجمعت الأمة على صحة هذين الكتابين، ووجوب العمل بأحاديثهما (تهذيب الأسماء واللغات)

The Ummah is unanimously agreed that these two books (Bukhari and Muslim) are Sahih, and that their Hadith narrations must be acted upon. (Imam al-Nawawi, Tadheeb al-Ismaa wa al-Lughaat).

And Allah (Most High) Knows best.
