Warning of sitting in gatherings which are void of the remembrance of Allah or salutations (durud)


Is this narration authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“If people sit in a gathering in which they do not remember Allah nor send salutations on Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), such a gathering becomes a cause of dismay and loss for them. If Allah wills, He will punish them and if He wills, He will forgive them”



Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3380)
