Incident of the Sahabi who couldn't recite the shahadah at death…

Question

There is a famous narration of a sahabi (radiyallahu’anhu) who was unable to recite the shahadah at the time of death because he was disobedient to his mother. Is this authentic?

Answer

Disobedience of parents is a proven serious sin.

However, this incident is unauthentic, and should not be quoted.

It has been recorded with 2 very weak chains. Both the chains have narrators that are are suspected liars in hadith. (Tabarani & Tambihul Ghafilin, pg.191)

See: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 8 pg.148, Tahdhibut Tahdhib, vol.8 pg.257/ vol.1 pg.98 & Lisanul Mizan, number: 3006

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
