Is this Hadith authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“The Quran is an accepted intercessor and a disputant whose claim is upheld. He who keeps the Quran in front of him, it will lead him to Jannah and he who kept it behind his back it will drive him into Jahannam”
Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith authentic.
(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 124. Also see: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 1 pg. 171 and Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 6182)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
