An unreliable narration regarding the book of deeds on the Day of Qiyamah

Question

What is authenticity of following narration?

إذا كان يوم القيامة نادى مناد لا يرفعن أحد من هذه الأمة كتابه قبل أبي بكر وعمر

 

Answer

Hafiz Ibn ‘Asakir (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. However, the chain consists of an extremely weak narrator. The Hadith should not be quoted.

(Tarikh Dimashq, vol. 44 pg. 459. Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 2 pg. 9, number: 2490 and Lisanul Mizan, vol. 6 pg. 335, number: 6040. Also see: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 818, Al Mudawi, Hadith: 396 and Al Mughir, Hadith: 56)

 

Translation

On the day of Qiyamah, a caller will announce, ‘None from this ummah will raise their book of deeds before Abu Bakr and ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
