What is the level of authenticity of this Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“If a homosexual takes a bath in the oceans of the world, on the day of Qiyamah he will still be impure”



Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. However, ‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have declared this Hadith a fabrication.

(Refer: Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 887 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 220)



Although this particular Hadith is not suitable to quote, there are many other suitable Hadiths which explain the sin of this act. See here and here.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
