What is the authenticity of this Hadith?
“He who snatches away the right of a Muslim by swearing a false oath, Allah would make Hell-fire necessary for him and would declare Jannah forbidden for him. A person said ‘Even if it is something insignificant?’ He replied: ‘Yes, even if it is the twig of the arak [miswak] tree'”
Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. The Hadith is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 137)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
