The Hadith: 'We are ordered to leave them to be with their religions'

Q: May I submit the following question, hoping to receive an answer: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “We are ordered to leave them to be with their religions.” Is this Hadith authentically reported from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), and if so, what is the degree of its authenticity? (Part No. 4; Page No. 462) Can we apply its ruling nowadays, or has it been abrogated by another one? I would like to know if this Hadith is authentic or fabricated. Kindly, clarify this.


A: We do not know of any Hadith reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) with the following wording: “We are ordered to leave them to be with their religions”, or even with the meaning of this. This Hadith is contrary to the teachings of the Book of Allah and the authentic Sunnah which incites people to convey the Law of Allah, and strive against those who do not respond.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
