Whoever harms others, Allah will place him into difficulty

Question

Can you provide the reference for this narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever [unjustly] causes harm [to a Muslim], Allah harms him [by placing him into difficulty] and whoever is harsh Allah will be harsh with him”

 

Answer

Imams Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah (rahimahumullah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Sirmah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1940, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 3630, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 2342)

 

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has graded the Hadith sound (hasan).

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
