A Narration on enjoining good and forbidding evil

Question

Is this narration authentic?

لا تزال أمتي بخير ما أمروا بالمعروف ونهوا عن المنكر وتعاونوا على البر، فإذا لم يفعلوا ذلك نزعت منهم البركات وسلط بعضهم على بعض ولم يكن لهم ناصر في الأرض ولا في السماء

 

Answer

I have not come across this in any authentic primary or secondary Hadith source. The Hadith should not be quoted until the chain can be located and then verified.

 

There are many suitable narrations on the harms of not enjoining good and forbidding evil. These should be quoted instead.

See here and here.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
