Whoever was ascribed to other than his real father will be admitted to Hell
What is the meaning of this statement: "Whoever was ascribed to other than his real father will be admitted to the Hell"?
Could you kindly advise?
The statement which the questioner mentioned is the purport of a Hadith that has been narrated in different wordings. One of them was narrated by
Abu Dhar that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
If somebody claims to be the son of anyone other than his real father knowingly, he but disbelieves in Allah...
Another one was narrated by
Abu Bakrah that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
Whoever claims to be the son of a person other than his father knowingly, Paradise will be forbidden for him.
Abu Dawud, and
In another narration that was related by
Anas the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
If anyone claims to be the son of a person other than his father or the client of someone other than his own masters, there is upon him the curse of Allah until the Day of Resurrection...
Despite the different wordings of these Hadith, they all threaten anyone who is ascribed to anyone other than his real father that he will be deprived from admittance to Paradise and his worthiness of Hell-Fire because of changing and mixing lineage. This may lead to great corruption such as the disinheritance of someone, giving inheritance to someone who is not entitled to it, prohibition of some women to some males, making women and men lawful or unlawful to each other, slandering the lineage and disdaining one's origins. Moreover, this may lead to (Part No. 20; Page No. 372) corruption and other bad consequences. Therefore, he deserves the curse of Allah which is repeatedly said by the Prophet (peace be upon him). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
