A Hadith regarding an unoccupied youngster

إن الله تعالى يبغض الشاب الفارغ

Certainly Allah Ta’ala dislikes a youngster who is unoccupied


‘Allamah Subki and ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahumallah) state that they have not come across any basis for this narration. This should therefore not be quoted.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
