“Whosoever harasses a Jurist has caused trouble and pain to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and the one who causes trouble and pain to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has caused trouble to Allah”
Imam Ibn Shahin (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) with a weak chain.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
