If Allah wished to punish this ummah, he would have not blessed them with Ramadan

Question

How authentic is this?

Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “If Allah Ta’ala wished to punish this ummah, he would have not blessed them with the month of Ramadan”

 

Answer

I have not come across this narration in any primary Hadith source.

The narration appears in ‘Nuzhatul Majalis’ (which is not a primary Hadith source) without a chain of narrators. I am therefore unable to verify the authenticity.

(Nuzhatul Majalis, pg. 200)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
