Never commit shirk, even if you are tortured

Is this Hadith authentic?

Sayyiduna Abud Darda (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates, “My beloved (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) advised me that I should not commit shirk with Allah even if my flesh is cut up and even if I am cast into a fire”


Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith. ‘Allamah Busiri (rahimahullah) has declared the chain sound (hasan).

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4034, Zawaid Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1351)

Note: Kindly refer to a Mufti/Darul Ifta for a Fiqh ruling on this issue.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
