Is this a Hadith?
مت مسلما و لاتبال
Pass away as a Muslim and don’t have any concern. i.e. As long as you pass away as a Muslim, your sins won’t harm you
The Muhaddithun have not come across these words as a Hadith. Shaykh ‘Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah (rahimahullah) says that the meaning of the Hadith is incorrect as the narration gives the impression that as long as a person passes away with Iman, he will not be taken to task for his sins.
(Al Masnu’ with annotations of Shaykh ‘Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah, Hadith: 294. Also see: Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 995)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
