A narration regarding mending a broken heart

Question

Is the following a Hadith?

“Whoever breaks someone’s heart then it is his responsibility to mend that person’s heart”

 

Answer

‘Allamah ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) states that this is an etiquette (adab) and these words are not known as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). It should therefore not be quoted as a Hadith.

(Ahadithul Qussas, Hadith: 71; Majmu’ul Fatawa, vol. 18 pg. 384. Also see: Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 402)

 

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
