Is this Hadith authentic?
When Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) began turning blind, he was advised to have it treated. However the treatment required him to leave out Salah for a few days. He refused saying that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Whoever omits his Salah will meet Allah Ta’ala in such a condition that Allah Ta’ala will be angry with him.”
Imam Bazzar and Tabarani (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration. ‘Allamah Mundhiri and Hafiz Sakhawi (rahimahumallah) have declared the chain sound (hasan).
(Musnad Bazzar; Kashful Astar, Hadith: 343, Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 11782, Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 381, Al Ajwibatul Mardiyyah, vol. 1 pg. 84. Also see: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 1 pg. 295)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
