The conspirator and the deceiver will be in Jahannam

Question

Can you mention the authenticity and Arabic text for this?

“Whoever misleads us is not one of us. The conspirator and the deceiver are in hellfire.”

 

Answer

Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith and has declared it authentic. Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has also recorded this narration. ‘Allamah Mundhiri (rahimahullah) has declared the chain of Tabarani authentic (jayyid).

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whomsoever acts dishonestly/deceives us is not from us. Conspiring and deception are in the Fire [i.e. The conspirator and the deceiver are in Jahannam].”

(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 5559, Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 10234, Targhib, vol. 2 pg. 572)

 

Arabic text

من غشنا فليس منا، والمكر والخداع في النار

 

Note: The first part of the Hadith is recorded in Sahih Muslim (Hadith: 101).

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
