Lying is a major sin. It’s the trait of a hypocrite. And there are many punishments prescribed for it. But there are further divisions and degrees of lying. Among the highest ones is: lying against the Prophet (SAW). It includes misquoting him/telling a lie to dis him. The punishment is grave. Even more than a regular lie..
The Prophet said, “Do not tell a lie against me for whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then he will surely enter the Hell-fire.”
Lesson: be careful while quoting Prophet (SAW)’s Ahadith. If there’s no reference, do not pass it on. If it’ not authentic, don’t even believe in it. This is a serious matter, so take it seriously!
