The punishment for concealing knowledge

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

I wanted to know the reference and authenticity of the following Hadith:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever is asked about some knowledge [that he knows] and he conceals it, he will be bridled on the Day of Qiyamah with a bridle of fire.”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah (rahimahumullah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2649, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 3650, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 266)

 

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
