A narration on arbitrating between two people

Question

What is the authenticity of this narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever arbitrates between two persons who come to him willingly, but passes an unjust verdict is cursed”

 

Answer

The Muhaddithun have declared this narration unreliable.

(Al Badrul Munir, vol. 9 pg. 554/555 and At Talkhisul Habir, vol. 6 pg. 3172)

 

The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
