A Hadith regarding an unoccupied youngster

Question

Is this narration authentic?

إن الله تعالى يبغض الشاب الفارغ

Certainly Allah Ta’ala dislikes a youngster who is unoccupied

 

Answer

‘Allamah Subki and ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahumallah) state that they have not come across any basis for this narration. This should therefore not be quoted.

(Tabaqatush Shafi’iyyah, vol. 6 pg. 359, Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 3702)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
