A door in Jahannam reserved for those who fight against the Muslims

Question

Could you verify this narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“There are seven doors of Jahannam. One door is reserved for those who unsheathe a sword against my Ummah” Or Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Against the Ummah of Muhammad”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi and Imam Ahmad (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith weak.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3123 and Musnad Ahmad, vol. 2 pg. 94)
