A fabricated narration on harming a poor person

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whoever harms a poor believer unjustly, it is as though he has destroyed Makkah ten times and Baytul Maqdis and it is as though he murdered close Angels”

 

Answer

Imam Ibn ‘Asakir and others have recorded this Hadith. However that chain consists of a liar. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

(Tarikh Dimashq, vol. 35 pg. 392. Refer: Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 2 pg. 748, Hadith: 927 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 316)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
