Falsely accusing someone

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it true that falsely accusing someone is worse than committing zina with one’s own mother in front of the Ka’baa Shareef? If however it is true, please provide reference.


A: Falsely accusing someone is a major sin in Islam and the consequences in the hereafter for such a crime is extremely grave. However we have not come across the statement mentioned in the question recorded in any Hadith.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
