What is the authenticity of this narration you have answered here?
Sayyiduna Abu Musa Al Ash’ari (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Among the greatest of sins in Allah’s sight which a man commits, after the major sins which Allah has prohibited, is that a man should die while in debt, without making any [arrangement] for it to be paid off.”
Imam Abu Dawud (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith. ‘Allamah Munawi (rahimahullah) has declared the chain authentic (jayyid).
