What is the grade of this Hadith

يبعث صاحب النخامة في القبلة يوم القيامة وهي في وجهه

Answer

This Hadith is recorded by Imam Ibn Khuzaymah (rahimahullah) in his Sahih on the authority of Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhuma) and is therefore authentic (sahih).

(Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 1313 & Fathul Bari, Hadith: 405)

 

Imam Ibn Kuzaymah (rahimahullah) has also recorded another similar Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Hudhayfah (radiyallahu’anhu).

(Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, Hadith: 1314)

The words in this narration are as follows:

من تفل تجاه القبلة جاء يوم القيامة وتفله بين عينيه

Also see Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 7534 with the footnotes of my beloved Shaykh, Al-Muhaddith Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah (may Allah protect him).

 

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
