May Allaah darken his face who hears my hadith and does not conveys it to others

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Assalaamu Alaikum

I know that there is a hadith such as

كما فيالترمذي عن زيد بن ثابت قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: نضر الله امرأً سمع منا حديثا فحفظه حتى يبلغه غيره

I want to ask, is there any hadith also with the opposite meaning that is:”May Allah darken (bay-noor) his face who hears my hadith and does not conveys it to others.”

I received a text message mentioning a hadith and at the end of the message, the above mentioned words were quoted as a hadith. 


In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Brother in Islaam,

There is no Hadith with reference to a person’s face being darkened for not narrating a Ahaadith. There were many Sahaabah (Radhiyallaahu ‘anhum) who exercised precaution in narrating Ahaadith.

Rasulullaah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said,

من كذب علي متعمدا فليتبوأ مقعده من النار[1]

Translation: “Whoever deliberately ascribes something to me falsely, then let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.” (Muslim 3)

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
