‘Pass away as a Muslim and don’t have any concern’

Question

Is this a Hadith?

مت مسلما و لاتبال

 

Answer

 

Translation

Pass away as a Muslim and don’t have any concern. i.e. As long as you pass away as a Muslim, your sins won’t harm you

 

The Muhaddithun have not come across these words as a Hadith. Shaykh ‘Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah (rahimahullah) says that the meaning of the Hadith is incorrect as the narration gives the impression that as long as a person passes away with Iman, he will not be taken to task for his sins.

(Al Masnu’ with annotations of Shaykh ‘Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah, Hadith: 294. Also see: Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 995)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
