A narration about abandoning Sunnah

Question

Is this Hadith correct?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

من ضيع سنتى حرمت عليه شفاعتى

‘Whoever abandons my way of life [Sunnah] my intercession will be forbidden for him [on the Day of Judgement].’

 

Answer

This narration is recorded in non primary sources like Tafsir Ruhul Bayan without a chain.

(Tafsir Ruhul Bayan, Surah An Nisa, Verse: 65, Vol. 2 pg. 231, Ihyaut Turath edition)

 

I have not come the chain and can therefore not verify the authenticity.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
