The punishment of lying regarding dreams

Question

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever relates a dream which he has not really had will have to tie a knot between two grains of barley [on the Day of Qiyamah] and will not be able to do so”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). The narration is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 7042. Also see Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2281)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
