Hadeeth about the seven at whom Allah will not look is inauthentic
Fatwa No: 364117

Question

What is the grade of this hadith:
"Seven persons are such that Allah will not look at them on the Day of Judgment, nor will He purify them, nor will He include them among the learned, and Allah will enter them into Hell. They will enter Hell first, except for those who repent, as those who repent, Allah will accept their repentance: a person who masturbates; a person who performs the act of sodomy; the person upon whom the act of sodomy is performed; a perpetual drunkard; the person who hits his parents so much that they appeal for help; the person who harms his neighbours so much so that they curse him; the person who commits adultery with his neighbour's wife."
Does it have support from other authentic narrations?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

This hadeeth was narrated by Al-Bayhaqi in Shu‘ab Al-Eemaan, and Al-Azdi reported it in the weak ahaadeeth, Al-Daylami in Al-Firdaws, and Ibn Al-Jawzi in Al-‘Ilal Al-Mutanaahiyah. Ibn Al-Jawzi said, “This hadeeth is not authentic.

Ibn Katheer, after mentioning this hadeeth following his interpretation of the verse in which Allah says (what means): {And those who guard their private parts. Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed.} [Quran 70:29-30]; he said: this is a Ghareeb (strange) hadeeth, and its chain of narrators includes someone who is unknown. Therefore, it is a weak hadeeth.

We thank you for writing to us, but we would like to draw your attention to the fact that you are always asking us such questions about the ruling on some ahaadeeth and so on, and sometimes you send the question from different email addresses.

We apologize for not answering such questions in the future and we will block them, as we are busy answering questions related to the rulings of the Shariah that lead to doing good deeds, and they are so many. We hope you would send us this type of questions instead.

May Allah guide us and you to all that is good.

Allah knows best.
