A Hadith mentioning a punishment for intentionally missing out Salah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Please verify and authenticate the following Hadith:

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The name of a person who misses even a single Fard Salah intentionally is written on the gate of Jahannam through which he will enter”

 

Answer

Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith.

(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 7 pg. 254)

 

However the chain consists of a narrator who has been declared a fabricator.

(Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 2 pg. 181, number: 1259)

 

The Hadith in question is therefore not suitable to quote. There are many other authentic Hadiths on the warning of discarding Salah. These should be quoted instead.

(Also see: Al Ajwibatul Mardiyyah, vol. 1 pg. 83)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
