Hadith on Curses: Prohibition of cursing a specific person by name

August 29, 2013

Abdullah ibn Umar reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, raised his head from the last bowing in dawn prayer and he said, “O Allah, curse and punish this person and this person,” after he had said, “Allah listens to those who praise him. Our Lord, for you is the praise.” Then Allah revealed the verse, “You do not have any decision in the matter whether He will forgive them or punish them. Verily, they are oppressors.” (3:128)

سَالِمٌ عَنْ أَبِيهِ أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا رَفَعَ رَأْسَهُ مِنْ الرُّكُوعِ فِي الرَّكْعَةِ الْآخِرَةِ مِنْ الْفَجْرِ يَقُولُ اللَّهُمَّ الْعَنْ فُلَانًا وَفُلَانًا وَفُلَانًا بَعْدَ مَا يَقُولُ سَمِعَ اللَّهُ لِمَنْ حَمِدَهُ رَبَّنَا وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ لَيْسَ لَكَ مِنْ الْأَمْرِ شَيْءٌ إِلَى قَوْلِهِ فَإِنَّهُمْ ظَالِمُونَ

4283 صحيح البخاري كِتَاب تَفْسِيرِ الْقُرْآنِ سُورَةُ آلِ عِمْرَانَ بَاب لَيْسَ لَكَ مِنْ الْأَمْرِ شَيْءٌ

قال ابن كثير ثُمَّ اعْتَرَضَ بِجُمْلَةٍ دَلَّتْ عَلَى أَنَّ الْحُكْمَ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ لَهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ
