Looking at the face of a youngster who does not have a beard

Question

What is authenticity of the following narration?

من نظر إلى غلام أمرد بريبة حبسه الله في النار أربعين عاما

 

Answer

‘Allamah ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) has referenced this narration to Ibnul Jawzi [without mentioning a specific book]. I have not come across the complete chain.

(Majmu’ul Fatawa, vol 15 pg. 377)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
