Please verify and authenticate the following Hadith:

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The name of a person who misses even a single Fard Salah intentionally is written on the gate of Jahannam through which he will enter”



Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith.

(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 7 pg. 254)


However the chain consists of a narrator who has been declared a fabricator.

(Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 2 pg. 181, number: 1259)


The Hadith in question is therefore not suitable to quote. There are many other authentic Hadiths on the warning of discarding Salah. These should be quoted instead.

(Also see: Al Ajwibatul Mardiyyah, vol. 1 pg. 83)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
