Authenticity of hadith
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
There are some hadiths that i wish to clarify for their state of authenticity, if you can help me with them i would be
really glad alhamdulillaah. The narration is:
"Seven people are such that Allah has cursed them and He will not even cast a look of mercy upon them on the Day of Judgment. Allah will
tell them to enter Hell with the people who are going to Hell, except those who repent.
1. One who performs the act of sodomy.
2. One upon whom the act of sodomy is performed.
3. One who does bad deeds with animals.
4. One who marries his mother or sister.
5. One who masturbates."
Please do mail the response to my id which is email@example.com.

Authenticity of hadith
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear and Beloved Brother, although all the above deeds are declared absolutely illegal and a grave sin by Allah and His Messenger (saws); to the best of our knowledge there is no authentic narration or Hadith from the Messenger of Allah (saws) with the exact words that you have quoted, or a hadith which lists these illegal deeds in one single narration.
There are indeed a couple of Aayahs of the Quran and several authentic narrations from the Messenger of Allah (saws) which mention the heinous sins which would so arouse the Anger and the Wrath of the Merciful Lord, that He would not even cast His Look on the doers of such evil on the Day of Judgment!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 77: As for those who sell the faith they owe to Allah and their own plighted word for a small price, they shall have no portion in the hereafter: nor will Allah (deign to) speak to them, nor look at them, on the Day of Judgment nor will He cleanse them (of sin); they shall have a Grievous Penalty.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Al-Baqarah verse 174: Indeed those, who conceal the commands that Allah has sent down in His Book and barter them away for paltry worldly gains, fill their bellies with fire. Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He regard them as pure and there is a painful torment for them!
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3195 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Allah will not look at a man who has intercourse with a man or a woman through the anus."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 5.17 Narrated by Abdullah bin Umar
That Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Allah will not look on the Day of Judgment at him who drags his robe (behind him) out of pride."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.557 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws) said, "There are three types of people whom Allah will neither talk to, nor look at, on the Day of Resurrection. (They are):
1. A man who takes an oath falsely that he has been offered for his goods so much more than what he is given,
2. a man who takes a false oath after the 'Asr prayer in order to grab a Muslim's property, and
3. a man who withholds his superfluous water. Allah will say to him, "Today I will withhold My Grace from you as you withheld the superfluity of what you had not created."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.537 Narrated by Abdullah
The Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever takes the property of a Muslim by taking a false oath, will meet Allah Who will be angry with him." Then the Prophet recited the Verse of the Quran (3.77): "Verily those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's Covenant and their oaths, they shall have no portion in the Hereafter, neither will Allah speak to them, nor look at them."
Sahih Muslim Hadith 195 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Messenger of Allah (saws) observed: Three (are the persons) with whom Allah would neither speak nor would He absolve them on the Day of Resurrection. He would not look at them and there is grievous torment for them:
the aged adulterer,
the liar king and
the proud destitute.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 192 Narrated by Abu Dharr
The Messenger of Allah (saws) observed: Three are the (persons) with whom Allah would neither speak on the Day of Resurrection, nor would look at them nor would absolve them, and there is a painful chastisement for them. The Messenger of Allah (saws) repeated it three times. Abu Dharr remarked: They failed and they lost; who are these persons, O Messenger of Allah (saws)? Upon this he (the Prophet (saws)) replied: They are:
the dragger of lower garment,
the recounter of obligation,
the seller of goods by false oath.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
