I made this for my Facebook when I saw the image on the left pop up in my newsfeed. Again. The first time was back in 2012 and now it’s going viral again.
The first three lines is the translation in Dhivehi, the language of my country, the Maldives. The hadith in English is as follows:
"When a husband and wife look at each with Love, Allaah looks at both with Mercy" [Bukhari 6:19 & Tirmidhi 14:79]
This hadith seems to be very popular with the way it’s making its rounds on social media, and I honestly wonder, is there no one who bothers to check its authenticity? Even a simple google search will tell you this is a fabricated hadith.
Those who share these posters, please don’t spread hadith posters without checking their authenticity. And those who create them, please do so after checking your sources. Understand that this is not a light matter and that we will be held accountable for our actions.
May Allaah forgive us our ignorance and save us from our own foolishness. Ameen.
