What is status of following narration?

إن الناس يكونون في قربهم عند النظر إلى وجه الله على قدر بكورهم إلى الجمعة



I have not come across these exact words in any primary Hadith source.


The following version should be quoted instead:

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) say:

“On the Day of Qiyamah, people will sit near Allah according to how early they came to Jumu’ah…”

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1094 and Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 10013)


‘Allamah Busiri has declared the chain of narrators as sound (hasan).

(Zawaid Ibn Majah, Hadith: 358. Also see Musnad Bazzar, Hadith: 1525 and Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 2735)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
