Ibn Baz رحمه الله – “Differing of My Ummah is a Mercy”
Q: “What is the degree of authenticity of the hadeeth “Differing of my Ummah is a Mercy (Rahmah)”‘ ?
A: “It is not authentic. This is from the speech of some of the salaf, from the speech of Qaasim ibn Muhammad regarding differing of the Companions of the Prophet (ﺻﻠﻰ الله عليه و سلام), he said, “I thought it to be nothing more except a mercy”, and it is not a hadeeth.”
– From the Fatawa Collection of Shaykh bin Baz, may Allah have Mercy upon him.
