Is this Hadith authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “If one of you enters upon his Muslim brother, he should not take off his shoes without his permission.”
This narration appears in Musnadul Firdaws.
Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “When one of you enters upon your Muslim brother, then he should not remove his shoes except with his permission.”
(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 1186)
However, the chain consists of a liar. It is therefore not suitable to quote.
(Refer: Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 2 pg. 745, Hadith: 923 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 313)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
