“Aboo Qataadah Al-Ansaaree (radiyallaahu `anhu) said: “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) saying upon this pulpit:
“O people! Beware of relating a lot of Hadeeth about me! Whoever says anything about me must not say except the truth, for whoever ascribes to me what I have not said, let him occupy his seat in the Hell-fire!””

Jaami-ul-Ahaadeeth, 7/145/27664) , Al-Al-Albaanee (As-Saheehah, 1753; Saheeh-ul-Jaami` , 2684), Shu`aib Al-Arna’oot (Mushkil-ul- Aathaar, 413, 414; Musnad Ahmad, 22538), Al-Judai` (Tahreer `Uloom-il-Hadeeth, vol.1/f.n.340, vol.2/f.n.921) , Ash-Shahree (Misbaah-uz- Zujaajah, 15), Husayn Asad (Musnad-ud-Daarimee , 243) and others.
It is also supported by another hadeeth narrated from Ibn `Abbaas (radiyallaahu `anhumaa) with a similar meaning, which was authenticated by At-Tirmidhee (2951), Al-Ishbeelee (Al-Ahkaam, 4/339), Ibn-ul-Qattaan (Al-Bayaan, 5/253), Ibn Hajar (Al-`Ujaab, 1/197-199) and As-Suyootee (C.f.

The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) said:
