“Do not tell lies about me, for whoever tells lies about me will enter Hell.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 106.

Sunni Muslims have the above narration which tells about consequences of deliberate lying about the Prophet.

Does Shia Islam have any narration where attributing a lie to the Prophet is a grave sin and leads to hell?

  • what's the significance of this question? I mean isn't it obvious that you shouldn't do such—regardless of sect? – Thaqalain Feb 1 '18 at 18:36
  • Even outside Islam, calumny is frowned upon. – user25685 Feb 1 '18 at 21:16
           In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful

I found a related hadith (religious narration) which might elucidate the inquiry and can be your answer. According to a Motewater (successive) hadith:

مَنْ‏ کَذَبَ‏ عَلَیَ‏ مُتَعَمِّداً فَلْیَتَبَوَّأْ مَقْعَدَهُ مِنَ النَّارِ

Namely: Whoever advertently attributes a lie(s) to me (the Prophet), he/she goes to provide his (her) place in the hell.
