A narration regarding trials

Question

What is the status and reference of this Hadith?

إذا ظهرت الفتن وسب أصحابي فليظهر العالم علمه، فمن لم يفعل فعليه لعنة الله والملائكة والناس أجمعين، لا يقبل الله منه صرفا ولا عدلا

 

Answer

This narration is recorded in Al Jami’u Li Akhlaqir Rawi of Hafiz Khatib Baghdadi and other Hadith collections. ‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has declared the text of the Hadith unreliable.

(Al Jami’u Li Akhlaqir Rawi: 1354. Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 4 pg. 191, number: 7432, Lisanul Mizan, vol. 7 pg. 313/314, number: 7108)

 

The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
