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].’
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.
