Avoid Spreading In-Authentic Hadeeth

 It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever deliberately tells a lie about me, let him take his place in Hell.” (Agreed upon; muttafaqun alayh). The Imaam, Al-Nawawi, may Allah have mercy on him) said, "It is haram (impermissible) to narrate a fabricated hadeeth for one who knows or thinks that it is most likely fabricated. Whoever narrates the hadeeth, knowing or thinking that it is most likely fabricated, and does not explain the facts about its narration and that it is weak, is included in this warning and comes under the heading of the liars who tell lies about the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). This is also indicated by the previous hadeeth, 'Whoever deliberately tells a lie about me, let him take his place in Hell.' "
