Is this narration authentic?

ما من شيء إلا له توبة إلا صاحب سوء الخلق فإنه لا يتوب من ذنب إلا عاد في شر منه



Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha).

(Al Mu’jamus Saghir, Hadith: 553)


‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared one of the narrators a liar.

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 8 pg. 25. Also see: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 6 pg. 196-197 and Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 413)



There is [hope for] forgiveness for every [evil], except for a person who has evil character. For he does not repent from a sin except that he reverts to something worse.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
