If you deny me before man, I will deny you on the day of Judgement
Do u have a refrence for the hadith “If you deny me before man,I will deny youon thedayof Judgement”?
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:
This is not a Hadeeth, but rather it is a lie attributed to Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam which can be found in many chain messages.
We must always keep very firmly in mind the Hadeeth of Hadhrat Salamah Radhiallaahu `Anhu who narrated that Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Whoever attributes something to me which I have not said, then let him prepare his abode in the fire (of hell).” – Authentic, from Saheeh Al-Bukhaari. [i]
So to attribute lies to Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam is a very serious issue.
In any case, this statement is actually from the bible. It says in Matthew 10:33: “But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” [ii]
So it is a Christian bible statement, and not a Hadeeth of Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam.
And Allaah knows best.
